fat free?....not likely....

Until today, I have been thanking a good friend in Brisbane (Hi Shan!!) for giving me this recipe for what she calls 'Awesome Biscuits'..... Now I am onto my fourth batch, I'm not so sure I should be thanking her at all! My hips sure aren't!
They are indeed 'awesome' and 'tempting' and 'moorish' and 'delectable' and just plain 'yum'!
Best of all (or worst depending on your point of view and current dress size), they are ridiculously easy to bake.
So, I am spreading the word and the nasty saturated fats to one and all.....enjoy.

Shan's Awesome Biscuits

1 medium jar of Peanut Butter (make it a good quality one) crunchy or smooth

1 cup Caster Sugar

1 Egg

1 cup Choc Bits

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees

  • Mix all ingredients thoroughly (I sometimes warm the peanut butter in the microwave to help remove it from its jar - this also means the chocolate will melt through the batter)

  • With flour coated hands, roll into small to medium sized balls and place onto paperlined baking trays - press with a fork

  • Bake for 10-15 minutes - try to get the bottoms lighlty brown for that yummy roasted peanut taste

  • Cool for few minutes on trays before moving to cooling racks

Sounds deliciously simple to make :) Peanut butter + chocolate = a mouth-watering combination!

ok, I've got the recipe Annie! Might just give them a go tomorrow!
They could be reasonably healthy you know depending on the peanut butter and chocolate you use. Reasonably! :)) x
