Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oat Bran Cookies: with Honey

 cookies and tea

To keep your recipe box growing with tasty delights baked with honey, I tried a new recipeI think it's a keeper. One of my favorite cereals is hot oat bran, served with roasted walnuts and honey. I've been looking at the recipe on the back of the box for years. A few weeks ago I decided to give it a try (with a twist, I added mini chocolate chips). 

½ cup butter, melted (I used Cabot)
1/3 cup raw honey, crystallized or liquid (I used Heavenly Honey Apiary)
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg or 2 egg whites (I used 4 Tbsp of egg whites)
½ cup peanut butter (Natural is great in this recipe)
½ tsp. vanilla
½ cup Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour (King Arthur Flour)
½ cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (King Arthur Flour)
½ cup Oat Bran Cereal Hodgson Mill (I used Trader Joes)
¾ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda

Cookie dough ready for oven
Ready for the oven

Preheat oven to 350° F. 

Mix melted butter with honey and brown sugar. Add egg (or whites); mix well. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla; beat until smooth. Add remaining dry ingredients; mix well. Drop by teaspoon into ungreased cookie sheet, (I lined mine with parchment paper). 

Bake on middle rack 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer to cooling rack, wait 10 to 15 minutes
