Chocolate Chip Peanut Biscuits

Looking for a great biscuit recipe that will make you want to reach for another? You’ll enjoy this Chocolate Chip Peanut Biscuit recipe, I couldn’t stop eating them.

I accidentally created this recipe as I was meant to make banana loaf,  I creamed the sugar and butter then realised I  didn’t have enough bananas for the recipe I was making, so I improvised and created these biscuits instead, I gave them to a friend when she visited and she LOVED THEM, so I thought I’d share these Chocolate Chip Peanut Biscuits with you too.

These Chocolate Chip Peanut Biscuits are delicious, nutty and so simple - I couldn't stop eating them!

I don’t flatten them before I bake them, as I like soft cookies.  You can flatten them slightly before baking which will make them thinner and bake them into harder cookies, but I prefer them softer so that they melt in your mouth as you devour them. These are definitely delicious cookies that the whole family will enjoy.

Note: The peanuts are optional, so if you have someone in your family with a nut allergy, you can still make these cookies using a substitute like sultanas and other dried fruits, however, it is the roasted peanuts that make them so good.

Delicious, light texture, buttery biscuit. The peanuts and dark chocolate are a great combo. I did add 1/2 tsp salt, because I love the salty taste with dark chocolate. Thanks Katrina ?
