Peanut Chocolate Chips Brownies

I always like to read the "ST" ~ "Mind Your Body" Kitchen section every Thursday. For this issue, there are two Brownies Recipes by CYNTHIA LOW, she suggests making snacks like Brownies. Oh, I always like sweet cakes and brownies. Very sinful snack! I've the ingredients for this recipe, so trying this one today and for the other recipe - "Gooey Chocolate and Walnut Brownies", wait till I have next family or friends gathering. The texture of these "brownies" is crispy on the outside, soft in the inside. Quite fragrant, very nutty, not too sweet.

Here's the recipe, makes about 50 brownies.

Peanut and Chocolate Chips Brownies

130g butter
160g caster sugar
2 eggs
200g plain flour
1 heaped tsp baking powder
150g roasted unsalted peanuts
100g chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Cream the butter and sugar together then add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
Sift the flour and baking powder together then stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in the peanuts and chocolate chips. The mixture will be quite stiff.
Line an oven baking tray with baking paper. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the tray. Slightly flatten the top of each with a fork.
Bake for around 15 to 20 minutes then cool on a wire rack.
