Step 2 CS is over – yay! =) One more exam – Step 2 CK – and I’m gonna be partying it up. Or maybe just camping at the lake and hanging out. Either way ;). Last Saturday, I launched a full-on stress baking marathon – starting with these Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes and ending with these cookies. I happen to love peanut butter. If I ever develop a peanut allergy, just go ahead and put me down…haha! Maybe not, but I would be very sad. I know peanut butter isn’t really a figure friendly food but I don’t care. I eat peanut butter almost every day. It’s worth it. And when it’s mixed with chocolate or honey it’s definitely worth it! I had a craving for peanut butter cookies but wanted to stray from my regular recipe and make some with honey. And then I decided to use spelt flour because y’all know how I like to get on kicks =). The result? The perfect blend of peanut butter and honey with a nice chewy texture. If I’d had honey roasted peanuts, I would have definitely thrown some in (and I definitely will next time!). If you’re a peanut butter lover, you’ll want to try this recipe. Enjoy!

    I cannot find my peanut butter cookie recipe 🙁 I may have to give these a whirl! They look yummy… although I have an unhealthy obsession with peanut butter.
