Recipe type: Biscuits
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
  • 0.75 cup + 1 tsp wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp corn flour
  • 0.25 cup neutral oil (I use almond)
  • 0.5 cup brown sugar
  • 0.5 cup caster sugar
  • 0.25 cup milk (I use soya)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 0.75 cup peanut butter (I use the cheapest, crunchy I can find)
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  2. Prepare two baking sheets with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour, bicarb, and salt.
  4. In larger bowl, whisk together oil, sugars, milk, vanilla and peanut butter until smooth.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine thoroughly/
  6. Using two tablespoons, scoop the mixture out onto the baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The biscuits should be golden, the edges just darkening.
  8. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving (and before trying to move from the baking sheet: they're hot).
