These are SO quick and easy to make! Gluten free and dairy free, perfect for picnics or a snack after a play session at the park. My children love these and can whip up a batch themselves, which is great school holiday entertainment with the added bonus of a delicious elevenses or afternoon tea treat.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 large free range egg, beaten
3/4 cup chocolate chips, or chocolate bar chopped into small chunks
Beat the peanut butter and sugar together in a bowl. Mix in the beaten egg thoroughly, then mix in the chocolate chips. The mixture will be quite stiff. I usually use my hand held electric mixer.
Roll tablespoonfuls into balls and put on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Flatten firmly with a floured fork.
Bake at 180C for 15-18 minutes until the biscuits are cooked and lightly browned. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely then store in an airtight container.
