Maybe it’s the winter creeping in, but I’ve been craving home baking these past few weeks – specifically the super-Kiwi stuff my mum used to whip up from the good old Edmonds Cookery Book. I have a copy, and the baking is (unsurprisingly) packed with sugar, so I’m on a mission to tweak a few classics to make them more gut friendly. Here’s the first: peanut brownie biscuits, which could easily become almond brownie biscuits if you prefer.
While this grain-free recipe may not produce perfect replicas of the crunchy-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside cookies you might know and love, they definitely hit the spot. And I’ve sneaked in a dose of grass-fed gelatin, which – among other health benefits – can help to repair damaged gut linings. How’s that for a guilt-free treat?
