They look delicious. I may even add some dark chocolate chips mmmmmmm

I make these biscuits all the time – I put chocolate chips in them instead of peanuts. I just like one every now & then for a snack. I had a Gastric Sleeve operation over 2 years ago & have lost 77kgs but still like something sweet occasionally. I love their texture & the peanut butter taste. Great recipe Organised Housewife.
