INGREDIENTS

  • 125 grams plain flour
  • 63 grams self-raising flour
  • 100 grams rolled oats
  • 125 grams salted butter
  • 125 grams caster sugar
  • cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

Topping

  • ¾ cup icing sugar
  • 25 grams butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup salted peanuts coarsely chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat over to 180°C (350°F).

    Line to baking trays with baking paper.

    • Combine and sift the flours into a large mixing bowl, add the rolled oats and stir.
    • In a small sauce pan combine, the butter, sugar, honey and peanut butter, stir over low heat until melted. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Refrigerate for 5 – 10 minutes.
      Note: The cookie dough will be too soft to handle at this stage. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 5 – 10 minutes so that it becomes firm enough to hold its shape.
    • Divide and roll into 20 even sized balls. Place on the prepared baking trays, spacing well apart. Light press and flatten each ball.
    • Place in the oven and bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until golden.
    • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the trays.
    • When cool decorate with topping.

    Topping

    • In a small mixing bowl combine and stir the icing sugar, butter and water until smooth. Dip the tops of the cookies into the topping, then into the coarsely chopped nuts.
