courgettes

Courgette (again!!) & Chocolate Biscuits

I was going to say I am sorry for another courgette recipe, but it is a good one, and there has to be ways to eat courgettes as I have lots of them.  I will be letting as many as I can grow to huge marrow status as they will then last until at least Christmas as a good veggie alternative in time of cabbage and kale.

But for now, lets bake again, I make big biscuits but of course the small the mix is placed on the baking sheet the smaller and more dainty the end result will be.

Ingredients

100g courgettes grated 
140g Self Raising Flour
2 tbsp baking powder
55g cocoa powder
75g butter
125g granulated sugar
60g Demerara sugar
4 tbsp yoghurt
1tsp vanilla essence

 

Method

pre heat the oven to 180oC
line a baking tray with parchment (to stop the biscuits sticking)
cream the butter and sugar together
once a smooth paste
add the cocoa powder
add yoghurt and vanilla extract continuing to mix throughout
add the grated courgettes

divide into 8 to ten balls and place on the baking sheet
or smaller if you want smaller biscuits 

bake for 10/15 minutes

 

place on a cooling rack as soon as you are able to touch them… or eat whilst warm.

perfect on their own or sprinkled over ice cream

 

enjoy
