Ok so these yummy biscuits aren't a super healthy snack buuuuut I figure they are homemade and that means you know what has gone into them and what things like artificial preservatives have been left out.
So if you crave a biscuit with your tea once in a while I reckon it's better than the store bought alternatives. And it's quicker and easier than going to the shop on a rainy weekend afternoon, if you've already stocked your cupboard that is. And you get to eat warm biscuits straight out of the oven, but not too soon because nobody needs a burnt face.
If you want to add healthier options you could substitute the sugar with an alternate sweetener and the flour with a substitute like almond meal. And at that point with an 85% cocoa chocolate I mean it's basically a health food.
125g softened unsalted butter
1/3 cup brown sugar and
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 and 3/4 cups flour
125g dark chocolate
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius / 350 degrees Fahrenheit and canola spray your tray so it's ready to go.
2. To soften your butter leave at room temperature for a bit. I use the back of a tablespoon to combine the butter together with the sugar. Do this until all of the butter has blended into the mix and there are not lumps left.
3. Break or chop the chocolate into pieces.
4. Add the chocolate and flour to the mixture.
5. Add the eggs and combine.
6. Shape the cookie dough and place onto the baking tray, keeping each one a few centimetres apart as they will spread out during baking.
7. Place the baking tray in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
8. Cool on a baking tray so the air can circulate underneath.
9. Once cooled store them in an airtight container.
