  • 50 g unsalted butter - softened
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 45 g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 75 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 50 g dark chocolate - I used 70% dark chilli chocolate


  • Cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, syrup and salt together until light and fluffy.
  • Stir in the flour until just mixed.
  • Chop or bash the chocolate so it falls into varying size bits. Keep a few of the larger chunks back and mix the rest into the cookie mixture.
  • Leave in a cool place to firm up if needed. My kitchen is quite cool, so this wasn't needed.
  • Roll into twelve balls and place well apart on a lined baking tray.
  • Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand, then press the remaining chocolate chunks into the tops.
  • Bake in the middle of a pre-heated oven at 180℃ for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are golden.
  • Leave for a couple of minutes to firm up, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely or just dive in and eat warm.


Orange flavoured chocolate would also work well in this recipe.
