I am used to finding recipes and meal ideas in odd places. But a biscuit recipe in an issue of a mountain biking magazine? Wow, that one surprised even me. I suppose though that biscuits would be convenient refueling for a busy biker.
The recipe was for peanut brownies, which I made half with peanuts and the other half with chocolate chips, so there's something for everyone. The recipe itself called for Chelsea's low GI sugar, but I just used raw sugar (or white, whatever you have in the pantry). Suddenly the lunchboxes look far more interesting!
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp cocoa
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup raw peanuts/choc chips
- Preheat oven to 170 degrees celcius and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
- Cream butter and sugar then add egg and beat to combine.
- Fold through dry ingredients and peanuts/choc (I split the mixture into two here, to keep the peanuts and chocolate apart).
- Roll into balls and press flat on trays with fork. Bake for 12 minutes.
