Cooking time: 20 minutes


115g unsalted butter, room temperature
150g sugar
1 egg
235g flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
150g dark chocolate with sugar kelp, roughly chopped
3 tsp Arctic Ocean Greens


Preheat the oven to 180ºC (160ºC fan). Line two baking sheets with baking paper.
Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Crack in the egg and mix well.
Sift in and fold through the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Roughly chop and stir in the chocolate and the seaweed.
Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls and place onto the lined trays, leaving space between them to grow. Flatten the balls slightly with your fingers, then place in the hot oven for 12-14 minutes, or until lightly golden. Leave to cool completely, if you can resist!
