Extremely chocolately choc-chip biscuits


Any of you who've made my chocolate brownies will know that I - and more importantly The Child - like chocolate-baked things just on the cooked side of gooey.

Here's our favourite chocolate biscuit recipe. I've added a bit of coconut flour as I was reminded by Kate of how good it is for you. Just a bit adds lots of undetectable-to-the-mouth fibre and an ever-so-slight coconut taste (but not so much that you'd pick it if you didn't know). If you want to make these without it, just replace it with the same weight of plain flour.

. 80g brown sugar
. 110g raw caster sugar
. 1 tsp vanilla extract
. 100g softened butter
. 1 egg
. 100g plain flour
. 20g coconut flour
. 50g good-quality cocoa
. 100g choc chips

Pre-heat oven to 180C. Makes about 20.

. Mix sugars, vanilla and butter until light and fluffy.
. Add egg and mix until well combined.
. Mix in flours, cocoa and choc chips with your hand, as all that cocoa is quite powdery.
. Shape into walnut-sized balls and place on tray.
. Slightly flatten balls with your hand.
. Bake for 8 mins.
. Keep out of sight from my family or they'll eat them all.

When cool, biscuits should be firm on the outside but soft and crumbly on the inside.

  1. I didn't know there was such a think as coconut flour. Where do you buy it?

  2. If anyone else is wondering where to get coconut flour, it's most commonly available at health food shops as it's a gluten-free product. x

  3. I have a feeling they don't sell coconut flour here. No matter, those cookies sound delicious and I will be making some soon. :) Best wishes, Tammy

  4. Chocolate chip biscuits sounds pretty amazing to me! I also love that you added coconut flour. I recently started only cooking with coconut oil and coconut sugar and I love it
