Ingredients

½ cup whole-wheat flour
¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup peanut butter
creamy, plus 2 tablespoons
½ cup brown sugar
packed, light, minus 2 tablespoons
*
2 tablespoons canola oil
or light olive oil, grape seed oil
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
melted and cooled slightly
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup peanuts
finely chopped

Directions

In a medium bowl, mix together the flours, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, brown sugar, butter, oil, honey, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth.

Stir in flour mixture until just combined, do not overwork.

Wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Line one baking sheet with silicon baking mat or parchment paper.

Using 2 tablespoons of chilled dough, roll into 1½ inch balls and place 2 inches apart onto the lined baking sheets.

Oil the bottom of a cup and gently press each ball down to about ½ inch thick, sprinkle with peanuts and press lightly.

Bake in the preheated oven, until puffed and edges begin to brown, about 13 minutes.

Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Repeat with remaining dough.

Will keep well in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
