Gluten free choc chest­nut brook­ies

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - REGIONAL EXTRA -

AUS­TRALIANS are urged to join the #nut­s30­days30ways chal­lenge this Septem­ber.

Now in its third year, the #nut­s30­days30ways chal­lenge en­cour­ages Aus­tralians to snack on a hand­ful of nuts each day, for a month.

“Nuts are nu­tri­ent-dense pow­er­houses that can help you man­age your weight, look af­ter your heart, live longer and they are great brain food too,” said Nuts for Life di­eti­tian Belinda Neville.

“The prob­lem is Aussies aren’t eat­ing enough nuts to gain the many health ben­e­fits.

“On av­er­age we eat just six grams a day – well short of the rec­om­mended 30 grams hand­ful.

“This chal­lenge is all about re­mind­ing peo­ple that get­ting your serve of nuts a day is just as im­por­tant as eat­ing your fruit and veg­gies.”

Method

Pre­heat oven to 180°C. Line a tray with bak­ing pa­per.

Com­bine hazel­nut meal, ca­cao pow­der, bak­ing pow­der and salt in a medium bowl and mix well.

In a jug, whisk to­gether su­gar, egg, oil and vanilla.

Add wet in­gre­di­ents to dry and stir vig­or­ously. Fold through choco­late chips and chopped ch­est­nuts.

Scoop choco­late mix­ture onto the pre­pared tray with a ta­ble­spoon mea­sure – this recipe makes about 18 bis­cuits.

Bake 10 min­utes, cool on tray one minute be­fore mov­ing onto a rack. Re­peat with any re­main­ing bat­ter. Tip: If ch­est­nuts are out of sea­son, sub­sti­tute with an equal quan­tity of an­other chopped tree nut.
