  • About

Peanuts, or groundnuts, are a staple foodstuff in West Africa, providing valuable protein and a satisfying feel to dishes. Usually used in savoury food, they also work as a sweet treat, especially when mixed with brown sugar in these simple, flour-free cookies. The high fat content of the peanut butter acts like dairy butter to make these rich and ‘short’ in texture, so they melt in the mouth. They rarely last long, especially with kids around.
