A new twist on an old favourite - Wholemeal and Chia Chocolate Chip Biscuits

In an effort to make more of the everyday things I bake more nutritious I've been substituting in wholemeal ingredients along with added nuts and seeds where I can. Wholemeal flour adds a new dimension to baked goods with its nutty flavour and added bite. One of my other favourite additions is chia seeds. Chia is versatile, tasty and easily added to so many recipes for an instant protein, texture and flavour boost. Here's my new take on the Chocolate Chip Biscuit. The children will hardly even notice they are healthier. This recipe makes a good double tray of biscuits, so there will be plenty to share around. 

Wholemeal and Chia Chocolate Chip Biscuits

200g butter
150g brown sugar
300g wholemeal flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
3 tablespoons chis seeds

Preheat the oven to 175deg. C and line a large baking tray.

Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. 

Add the wholemeal flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and chia seeds and stir to combine. 

The mixture will appear crumbly, but should hold together when pressed. 

Press and roll tablespoon lots into balls and arrange on the lined tray. 

Flatten each ball, then bake for 10 to 12 minutes. 

Allow to cool on the tray as the biscuits will be very soft straight from the oven.
