grand final celebrations. Not that my family appreciated them much. They didn't appeal to the celiacs, or the choc chip averse, or those who just wanted to eat crisps. More for us!
Angela suggested using a little oil instead of margarine to make them crisper. I might just try it. Next time I also should chop bigger chunks of chocolate. Never mind. They were a great snack in the park the next day and disappeared within days.
I am sending these to Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes for her Bookmarked Recipe Event.

adapted from Oh She Glows
Yield: 36 cookies
- 1 flax egg: (1 tbsp ground linseed or flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water)
- 125g margarine (I use Nuttalex)*
- 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (I used 1/2 tsp and will leave it out next time)
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp molasses
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup plain white flour
- 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
- 2/3 cup chopped dark chocolate
Cream butter and sugars. (I did this by hand but you could use electric beaters.) Add vanilla (if using), bicarb soda, cinnamon, molasses and salt. Gently stir in flours and then chocolate.
Drop heaped teaspoons of batter onto prepared tray(s). You don't need to shape or flatten them as they will spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes (I did 12 minutes) until just lightly golden brown. Rest on try for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
* Angela suggests try substituting a tbsp of olive oil for one of margarine for extra crispiness.
