Peanut and Choc Chip Biscuits
It’s official. I’m nuts for peanuts!
I mean, constantly trying to dream up ways to add them into recipes is a dead giveaway right?
I wasn’t sure if my gang would go for this peanut version of the choc-chip biscuit, so I did half the batch without the peanuts.
The peanut-less batch paled in comparison, with a unanimous vote from the whole family for the peanut version!
I think it’s that extra little crunch and saltiness that does the trick.
No, you probably can’t pack these in your kids school lunchboxes (save them for after school) but lucky for you you can grab 40 sweet and savoury, nut-free and refined sugar-free, school-friendly lunchbox ideas in my Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes recipe ebook here (the Coconut Rough Cookies are to die for!)
