PB & H Choc Drop Cookies

Here’s a quick little choc drop cookie recipe that is simply just too good not to share. We love peanut butter cookies here in our little home and I usually make some variation on the same recipe every week or so to enjoy with our morning cuppa. This easy peanut butter choc drop cookie recipe includes quiona flakes which are so light and tasty and make a great variation on the oats I usually use.

As a child I ate peanut butter and honey sandwiches religiously and these cookies are reminiscent of that awesome flavour combination. Of course for a vegan version simply use maple syrup or substitute with brown sugar. Ready in no time this little cookie recipe deserves to be baked asap :)

Preparation time: 20mins // Makes 12 Jumbo cookies {or about 18 small cookies}

Print Friendly
  • ½ cup plain unbleached flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup quiona flakes [or oats if you prefer]
  • ½ cup non-dairymilk choc drops and/or sultanas (raisins) [I used a combination of both here]
  • 3 tbs smooth peanut butter
  • 4 tbs raw clear honey [or for vegans use maple syrup]
  • 2½ tbs almond or rice milk
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • extra choc drops

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/392°F and prepare a large baking tray by lining with baking paper.

Sift the flour and baking soda into a large bowl, add a pinch of salt, the quiona flakes, choc drops and/or sultanas and stir to combine well.

In a small bowl whisk the peanut butter with the honey or maple syrup, oil, milk and vanilla until smooth.

Add the peanut butter mixture to your dry cookie ingredients and combine well to form a soft cookie dough.

Roll a small portion of the cookie dough into a ball, drop onto your prepared cookie tray and squish an extra choc drop into the middle. Repeat with the remainder of the cookie dough.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes until ever so slightly golden. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for a minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these delicious peanut butter cookies with a good cup of tea and sweet company.

    I’m allergic to peanuts, I wonder how they’d be with almond butter.

    These look and sound amazing. The pb cookies with chocolate kisses were my favorite growing up at christmas cookie exchanges. I need to make a vegan version and these look perfect!

    These are my absolute favorite Christmas cookies! I’ve never actually had them with honey in them, though. Sounds delish!

    I’ve never known anyone else who loved peanut butter and honey sandwiches! I still eat them sometimes, washed down with a big glass of cold milk. Pure heaven. Will definitely try these bikkies out!
