Biscuits, Cookies & Cakes

Peanut Biscuits

Really fast and easy to make. Perfect anytime.

Either roast your own peanuts or buy dry roasted nuts or nuts cooked in coconut oil. Avoid peanuts cooked in cottonseed oil and peanuts grown in China. Preferably choose peanuts grown in Australia as they are “clean” of nasty chemicals and pesticides.


Peanut Biscuits

Peanut biscuits are the perfect balance of sweet and savoury. Best of all they are super easy to make.

When making the biscuits you can either scoop using a teaspoon or use a cookie/ice cream scoop.
I prefer to use a cookie scoop as it gives me biscuits of all the same approximate size.
Cookie scoops are not too expensive and can be purchased from here.
I use this amazing baking tray from Pyrex. It is the best baking tray I have ever used. Take a look for yourself.
