Chocolate biscuits recipe

These biscuits are so delicious, I have to hide them in the pantry or the kids will eat them all in one sitting. They are a little chocolate indulgence and great to have with a cup of tea or coffee.



  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa, sifted


Preheat oven to 180°C. Cover a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla until well combined.

Stir in flour, baking powder and cocoa.

Roll spoonfulls into balls and press with a fork to slightly flatten.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.



  • These biscuits beg for the addition of chocolate chips. If I don't have some I like to add some chopped nuts for crunch.
  • If they are for a special occasion or I am giving them as a gift, I add macadamias.
