Step 1.

Preheat to 175C. Line two baking sheets with parchment.

Step 2.

Whisk together flour, ½ tsp sea salt, baking powder and soda; set aside.

Step 3.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter with sugars and honey on medium-high speed until very pale and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla, then flour mixture until a smooth dough forms. Stir in the chopped chocolate until combined.

Step 4.

Scoop about 0,5 dl (approx.30 g) of dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 5 cm apart. Sprinkle with remaining ½ tsp sea salt.

Step 5.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, switching sheets halfway through, until edges have set, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a rack; let cool completely.
