Double Choc Peanut Butter ANZACs

Yesterday I made 3 batches of Anzac bikkies for Anzac day.

Two batches were my ever popular traditional recipe

And the other....?

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Anzacs! What doesn't a bit of chocolate and PB make better? Best idea ever right? Well to be fair, a few people still preferred the traditional version. But that's probably cos they're damn good too.

Okay, this isn't exactly one of my most healthy recipes, but you can definitely adapt it using my healthy version in the above link, using dates and coconut oil.

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Anzacs


1 Cup rolled Oats
1 Cup Coconut
1/3 Cup Cocoa
3/4 Cup flour
1/2 C brown sugar

125g Peanut butter
2 TBS syrup of your choice
30g vegan butter
2 TBS water (or more as need*)

1 tsp Bi-carb

1/3 C choc chips

Mix together first lot of ingredients in a large bowl.
Melt second lot of ingredients (PB to water) in a saucepan. Take off heat once melted and stir in bicarb.
Add wet to the dry mix, stir well.
Stir in choc chips.

Bake in 160c oven for around 10 mins or until just lightly browned. Cool on rack, store in airtight container.

*your dough wetness will vary on the type of peanut butter that you use as some are more oily than others. Basically you want your dough to just come together.

I love messing around with recipes, seeing how I can make them my own. I don't think I've made a recipe to the letter for a long time.
How about everyone else? Do you prefer to stick to the recipe to ensure success or like to mix it up a bit and risk failure?

I've been trying to focus on cutting out sugars entirely, as well each and  component in each recipe having a positive health value. I'm still making breakfast cookies nearly every second day!

I have kept basic outlines of most of these so if anyone's interested, I'll work on making the recipe perfect enough to post :)
