Buttery chocolate cookie

This is sort of a take on an afghan biscuit.

It’s simple to make and oh, so delicious. Buttery and crispy.

You can make with various cereals so flexible. They also keep really well.

Recipe – buttery chocolate cookie

100g butter softened (yes, it is a lot – high calorie for those who need it!)
1/8 cup of sugar (adjust to taste, I cook low sugar options)
½ tsp vanilla
½ + 1/8 cup flour (I used wholemeal)
½ tsp baking powder
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1 cup Cornflakes or Weetbix (I used Weetbix) You could also crush Rice Bubbles or other similar cereals


Heat oven to 180˚
Cream butter and sugar
Stir in the other ingredients until well mixed
Use a tablespoon to measure into a ball
Flatten on a greased baking tray or silicon sheet
Bake for approx. 12 mins
They will be crumbly straight out of the oven, so allow to cool before moving
