These are some of the easiest and quickest bikkies you will make! As you may know, we don't like too many steps in our recipes (or too many dishes) so this one ;literally involves throwing it all in a bowl, mixing it up and rolling it into balls. So easy. They have an interesting texture given the peanut butter content and sort of melt away in your mouth. Yum.
We have used rice malt syrup in this recipe which does not have any fructose but keep in mind it is still a sugar and the biscuits should still be regarded as a treat! As a Mum who has had gestational diabetes, I also found rice malt syrup would spike my blood sugars so if you have diabetes, a more suitable sweetener would be liquid stevia.
How are they loaded? Peanuts are an excellent plant based source of protein and dark chocolate is an antioxidant powerhouse-put them together and they make you pretty happy too!
- 1 cup of natural 100% peanut butter (or make the peanut butter yourself by processing roasted nuts in a high powered processor for approx 3-4 minutes until the consistency of butter)
- 100g dark choc (70% cocoa or more) chopped into chips
- 1/3 cup rice malt syrup
- 1/2 cup wholemeal spelt flour
- 1 tap baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- Preheat oven to 170 degrees fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl
- Mix together with a spoon and then get your hands in there to really mix up
