Bake: Anzac Biscuits

These coconut Anzac biscuits are an all year favourite around here. They are excellent for school lunch boxes and last well in the cupboard. With Anzac Day this Friday, I thought Anzac biscuits would be perfect for this week's daily baked good lunchbox treat.

Am I the only person who calls their baked items, baked goods?? My husband thinks I'm a loony when I ask if he'd like a baked good with his lunch...

My recipe for Anzac biscuits has been adapted from a recipe given to me by a friend a few years ago. The original recipe has more sugar but I prefer them less sweet. I always make a double batch.

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup coconut flakes
125 g butter
2 tbs golden syrup
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
2 tbs water

Preheat oven to 180C. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a large mixing bowl. Melt butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add bicarb soda and water and allow to froth. Add hot, frothy syrup mixture to dry ingredients and mix well. Roll into balls and squish flat before baking until golden brown (about 10 minutes). Cool on wire racks.

Makes about 20 biscuits.

Eat and enjoy!

  1. Yum, and thanks for the reminder to make these!

  2. YUM - I hope I can find some time to make these!!

  3. You haven't revealed your side on the perennial Anzac biscuit debate - crisp or chewy?

  4. I just went grocery shopping today and stocked up on ingredients to make these. Anzac biscuits are my fave!

  5. I sit firmly in the middle of crisp and chewy. A bit of crisp but not too crisp that it breaks your teeth!

  6. Oooh thanks for sharing!! I always knew about Anzac of course, from the man, but never heard about the related biscuits until I came there (what kind of red-blooded man doesn't talk about his motherland's cookies, for goodness' sake?? LOL - although to be fair, he does go on about Tim Tams) Anyway, I wanted to try my hand at making some so I am VERY glad you shared your recipe!! Thanks again!! :D
