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.
