  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup honey roasted peanuts
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1 ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 tbsp milk (whole or 2%)
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Place oven rack in center of the oven.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. Add flour and peanuts to food processor.  Pulse for 30-45 seconds, until finely ground to create peanut flour.

  3. Add butter, peanut butter, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla extract to stand mixer.  Mix on low to moisten, then turn to medium and mix for 3 minutes, until soft and light.

  4. Turn mixer to low and add half of the beaten egg.  Mix until incorporated, then add the rest of the beaten egg, and mix until incorporated.  Scrape bowl with spatula.

  5. Turn mixer to low.  Add peanut flour and milk to stand mixer bowl, and mix on low to form a soft dough (about 2 minutes).  Pour in chocolate chips (if desired) and mix just until combined.

  6. Scoop out dough balls with 2 tbsp size cookie scooper and place on prepared baking sheets.

  7. Cook in preheated oven for 14-16 minutes, until tops and edges are slightly browned, but still puffy in the middle.  Let cookies sit on baking sheets for 10 minutes, then move to wire rack for further cooling.  Enjoy!!
