Anzac Biscuits

Aussie oatmeal biscuit.


  • 1 cup cooking oats

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 1 cup soft brown sugar (or caster sugar if you don't have brown)

  • 120g butter*

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons golden syrup

  • 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda

  • 2 tablespoons boiling water


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 175 degrees C

  • 2.

    In a large bowl, add oats, coconut, sugar and sifted flour. Mix together.

  • 3.

    Add butter and golden syrup to a saucepan and melt gently while stirring.

  • 4.

    Put bi-carb into a small heatproof container and mix with the boiling water. Add to the melted butter and syrup.

  • 5.

    Mix butter mixture to the dry ingredients until it is wet through.

  • 6.

    Make balls with the mixture and flatten slightly, place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.

You can make giant Anzac biscuits too, just increase the baking time a little.

Awsome and simple. Recommend trying a few batches and varying the biscut size. I found my fan forced oven at 160C produced a better result. Cheers Olaf
