Mini Chocolate Chip Biscuits

It is a tradition at our house to do lots and lots of baking together in the school holidays.  One of the kids favourite thing to bake is chocolate chip biscuits.  They can almost make them independently from scratch with me just hovering in the background.  We have a favourite recipe that we use.  It is super light and when you're trying to stay healthy and watch what you eat (like me!) the recipe is a real winner.

Mini Chocolate Chip Biscuits


  • 25g light canola or margarine spread
  • 2 tabs canola oil
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 egg white
  • 75g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75g chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate)
How to
  • Preheat oven to 180'C
  • Cream butter, oil and sugar in a food processor until pale and creamy
  • Add vanilla and egg white and beat for another 2 minutes
  • Sift together the flour and baking powder and add to the butter and egg mix.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Drop spoonfuls of mixture evenly on to paper lined baking trays (approx. 24 spoonfuls)
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden
  • Cool on a rack
NB - These can stay fresh for about 1 week in an air tight container
