Peanut Butter Biscuits

I love these biscuits for their simplicity. Once you bite into one there is no doubt that they are made from peanuts and if you’re really a lover of nuts, you may even add a few chopped peanuts to the biscuit dough before baking! These biscuits will satisfy a sweet tooth in an instant and as they’re packed with protein, will boost your energy levels. An added bonus is that they’re gluten free.

Makes about twenty biscuits.

250ml brown sugar

250ml peanut butter

1 egg

5ml baking powder

Note 1:

You may use a smooth or crunchy peanut butter, it is up to you. You may also add chopped peanuts to the dough or simply press a whole peanut onto each biscuit before you bake them.

Note 2:

The baking powder in this recipe may be left out. I prefer the mixture with the baking powder as it prevents it from being dense and heavy.

Preheat your oven to 180℃ and line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and give it a good mix-through.

Place the bowl into the fridge for about 20 minutes to allow the dough to firm up.

Remove from the fridge and start making balls. I use a 15ml measurement spoon to scoop even sized balls.

Place the balls onto the baking paper and press down lightly with the tines of a fork to make the traditional peanut butter biscuit shape.

Bake the biscuits for 9 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges.

Once the biscuits are removed from the oven they will be very soft. Allow them to cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet and storing them in an airtight container.
