Peanut butter biscuits

Haven't done any baking for a while. Since I had some time this morning, thought I would try out a recipe I saw yesterday. They are quite good!

1/3 cup cold-pressed canola oil
1/2 cup unsalted organic peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 large organic egg
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp water
1-1/4 organic whole spelt flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp organic ground cinnamon
1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate, at least 70% cocoa mass

Preheat oven to 180C. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.

In a medium bowl beat together oil and peanut butter until well combined. Beat in brown sugar. Add egg, vanilla and water, beating until well combined.

Combine spelt flour, baking soda and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Stir into peanut butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chunks. The batter will be very thick and quite sticky.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool in tray for 5 minutes then remove to cooling rack.
