Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of "ground" hazelnuts Grind them in the food processor, as finely as possible
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups of old fashion oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a whoopie pie baking pan. Using a whoopie pie pan will get the cookies even and round. You can use a regular cookie sheet if you don't have one.
  2. **Tip: take the eggs and butter out of the fridge about 30-45 minutes before starting to bake so that they get to room temperature on the counter.
  3. In a bowl of an electric mixer, add butter and sugar. Mix on medium-low until light and creamy, it will take about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition.
  5. Add the honey and vanilla, mix until combined.
  6. Add the ground hazelnuts, flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until well combined.
  7. Add the oats and chopped hazelnuts. Mix until evenly incorporated.
  8. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into the whoopie pie pan cups (or onto a cookie pan.) Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
