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.
