Chocolate wheaten bikkies are yummy, but I can’t be bothered with that whole dipped-in-melted-chocolate palaver. So I decided to make them with the chocolate on the inside. Easy peasy! And they were a huge hit with the Sprogs. I can almost convince myself they’re healthy(ish) too, as they contain wholemeal flour and wheat germ.
RECIPE: INSIDE-OUT CHOC WHEATENS
100g butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup wholemeal plain flour
3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/3 cup wheat germ
150g choc chips
METHOD: Pre-heat oven to 180C. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Beat butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in flours, wheat germ and choc chips. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Place on trays. Flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
