The kids love these biscuits because they contain chocolate, but I don't feel too guilty about these ones because they also have oats in them.
- 150g unsalted butter at room temperature
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup Caster Sugar
- 1 egg at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain flower
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 150g coarsely chopped chocolate
- Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan forced). Line a large tray with baking paper Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy
- Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined
- Sift the flour and baking powder over the egg mixture. Add the oats and chocolate and stir until well combined
- Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place on lined tray and flatten slightly. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside on the tray for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
This recipe was given to me by a mum at school who doesn't remember who gave it to her. If this is YOUR original recipe - feel free to claim it - and THANKS - it's been a favourite in our household for a couple of years now. Unlike other biscuit recipes I've tried, these biscuits freeze really well for a lunch box treat or unexpected play dates. I've used less sugar and chocolate and they still taste basically the same. My next experiment is swapping chocolate for dried fruit.
