Peanut Brownies

3 Jun

More traditional food of my people.

Don’t get our brownies confused with chocolate brownies, American-style. These are biscuits, or “cookies”, as you types may refer to them.  They are best enjoyed with a big glass of soy milk.

My  mum is addicted to these crack-like biscuits, so now she can make some for us to share when we visit. Pay attention Ma! 

They’re both crunchy and chewy.  You like what you see? You like it? Aw yeah you do. So do I. For this reason tonight I’ll be featuring a beetroot salad on Tahini Sauce.


INGREDIENTS

125g margarine
1 cup sugar
1.5 cups flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
1 cup peanuts
1 tablespoon of water

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend all ingredients, except peanuts, in a blender. Mix batter with peanuts. Roll into balls, press, bake on a greased tray at 180ºC, until springy to touch and cooked through.  When you remove them from the baking tray they will be bendy so let them cool on a cooking-rack; they’ll firm up and the final result will be a chewy-but-crunchy biscuit.
