One good thing about a winter’s night is being in your pj’s and snuggling on the couch with a cup of tea and some chocolate and date biscuits…
80g butter, melted, cooled
2/3 cup agave
1/2 cup dates – pre soaked
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 – 1/2 cup cacao depending on how rich you want them
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
I started making this recipe in the food processor as it blends the dates beautifully to make a super smooth biscuit mixture.
Start blending butter and agave, then add eggs and dates. Sift flours, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda into mixture and process until smooth. I add cacao last and taste as I go to check flavour.
Using a table spoon as a measure place spoonfuls on to a lined tray. Bake for 8 – 12 minutes or until golden on bottom. Cool on trays for 10 minutes, then place onto a cooling rack.
