My Nan's peanut brownies
I am running the risk of being disowned by posting this recipe. These biccies are a complete family favourite, something you can always count on being great and plentiful when having cups of tea with my grandparents. Actually I only got the recipe from my Nanny when leaving the country, I begged her for it, claiming proper withdrawals from them being o/s. The name may be a misleading, they are not brownies in the tradional sense, you know like a gooey kind of slice. They are choccie peanut biscuits with a lovely crunch, and the best bit.......they are super easy and quick to whip up.
Preheat oven to 180C
125g melted butter
1 cup sugar
Stir until fluffy
1.5 cups of SR flour
1 tbs cocoa
1 cup salted peanuts (if you are using unsalted peanuts you will need to add a tsp of salt)
Slowly stir in flour and cocoa, then add peanuts last
Use a teaspoon to measure out dough, form into little balls and space well on baking tray. Bake for 15-20 mins.
See it is so easy, so few ingredients needed for such a good cuppa tea treat.
