Ingredients
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ⅙ cup blossom honey
  • ⅙ cup regular honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rum extract (optional)
  • ⅓ cup chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix oil, honeys, vanilla and rum extracts. Add to the flour mixture and stir until almost combined. The consistency should be mildly sticky but still easily crumbly.
  4. Add the walnuts and stir until walnuts are well mixed in the dough.
  5. Make 1' balls from the dough and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The dough should be easily moulded by hand.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven. The cookies should be just turning brown on the edges and very slightly soft when lightly probed with the back of a spoon.
  7. Remove from the oven. Using a fork or knife, gently lift the cookies to make sure the cookies are not stuck onto the parchment paper. Let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  8. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Notes
Honey: One of my testers found the honey too overpowering. Others liked the slightly floral taste from the blossom honey. For a milder taste, use ⅓ cup of regular honey.

Rum: Optional. Add for a more unique but subtle flavor.
