These chocolate wheaties are great for late-night snacking or an early morning grab-and-go. Instead of turning to store-bought ones, you can make your own wheat-germ biscuits using the most accessible ingredients from your nearest supermarket.

Ingredients

Steps

01.

Preheat oven to 180 C (160 C fan-forced). Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

02.

Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer for about 1 min or until smooth. Beat in egg until combined. Stir in coconut, wheat germ and flours.

03.

Roll dough between sheets of baking paper until about 5 mm thick. Place on tray; refrigerate for 30 mins.

04.

Cut 7.5 cm rounds from dough to make about 18 biscuits; place about 2.5 cm apart on trays.

05.
Bake biscuits for about 20 mins. Cool on trays.
06.

Meanwhile, stir in chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water until melted. Cool.

07.

Spread bases of wheaties with chocolate; mark with a fork. Stand at room temperature until set. Serve.

TIP If the weather is cool, store these biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature ­ if it’s hot, keep container in the fridge.
