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!)

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Rapadura sugar
Spelt flour
Baking powder
Dark chocolate chips
