Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Sieve the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the sugar and combine.

In another bowl mix the oil, syrup and peanut butter until you get a smooth liquid.

Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and then the peanuts and chocolate. Work it into a dough and then form small balls.

Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.
