In the last year or so, I’ve started using honey a lot more in my day to day baking and cooking. I throw it in salad dressings, oatmeal, smoothies, and pies. But up to this point, I hadn’t tried it in a chocolate chip cookie. These cookies were perfect for a dessert where I was serving a bunch of different kinds of cookies because they’re small, almost bite size, and simple. They’re also incredibly easy to make!
Recipe adapted from here.
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces chocolate, roughly chopped (I did 54% from Trader Joe’s)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Beat the butter and brown sugar in your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the egg, honey, and vanilla. Mix well and then scrape down the sides of the bowl.
3. Slowly add both flours, the baking soda, and baking powder. Once fully incorporated, take the bowl off the mixer, and add the chocolate chunks by hand with a spatula.
4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
5. Once the dough is chilled, drop balls onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone liner or sprayed with cooking spray. The balls should be 1 tablespoon in size, and about an inch to two inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes until cookies are light brown.
