This is my entry into the NZ Airborne National Honey Week competition. I wanted to create a recipe that only uses a few ingredients so the honey could shine through. A no-flour, one-bowl wonder - VERY easy to make and scrummy!

Makes 16-20 cookies

1/3 c New Zealand honey (I used clover)
1 c peanut butter (Pic's is my preferred brand but any organic, salt-free, all natural one is good)
2 tbs cocoa powder
3/4 c chocolate drops

Preheat the oven to 180C. Soften or slightly melt the honey in a saucepan or microwave-proof bowl, take off the heat and mix in the cocoa powder. Add the peanut butter and chocolate drops and mix really well.
Use 2 teaspoons to scoop out a large teaspoon of mixture and drop onto a baking sheet. Flatten out slightly. The cookies don't spread so you can place close together; they should all fit on one sheet. You also don't need to oil the baking sheet as there's enough oil in the peanut butter.
Bake for 12-15 min or until cooked through and slightly browned underneath. Remove from the oven and allow to cool and harden up for 10 min, then transfer to a wire rack.
Thoroughly enjoyed by toddler, husband and niece!

Here's how to enter, from Airborne:
All you have to do is concoct a recipe that showcases New Zealand honey. It couldn’t be easier. The Airborne Honey team will be judging the recipes.
When you write your blog post, if you could also mention that it is a National Honey Week recipe that would be great, as it’ll mean we won’t miss your post when we’re collecting entries. You can also email the link to Rachel Bradshaw at  
Entries are open now and will close at 5pm on Monday 30 March 2015. The winner will receive a bumper pack of New Zealand honey varieties and $350 in Restaurant Association of New Zealand vouchers for a slap up meal out. Three runners-up will also receive smaller honey pack prizes.
Best of luck and have some fun with National Honey Week!

I made another batch today, Thursday 19th. This time I added some chopped peanuts. They spread really well, really evenly, and were even more delicious than yesterday! Made 17 medium-sized cookies.
