Flourless Peanut Butter Honey Cocoa Cookies

You can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. I've been wanting to try some more recipes without flour, and I saw a post recently for cookies that said to use peanut butter, honey, egg, and baking soda. The recipe link didn't lead anywhere, so I started browsing peanut butter recipes and found this Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies recipe. I decided to give this version a try and added some honey.

I mixed the peanut butter and sugar together first. I substituted 1/2 cup honey in place of half of the sugar.

I thought about adding some hazelnut spread with the peanut butter but instead added some cocoa powder because it fits so well with peanut butter.

Next I stirred in the beaten egg and baking soda to finish the dough.

I scooped the dough onto a baking sheet and got them in the oven.

I let them cook for 12 minutes and they had gotten huge.

Wow, I have hit the cookie jackpot. Even with all that honey, the flavor that sticks out is the chocolate and it is perfect. Adding cocoa powder was a good call. I can't believe there isn't any flour in these because the texture is just like a regular cookie. I'm glad I gave this recipe a try. This makes me want to test out some more flourless recipes with vegetables in them too, like zuchinni muffins or brownies. Oh yes.
