Yummy Anzac biscuits

Well, here comes my first recipe.
A few nights ago I was wanting something sweet, but not too sweet.  Something yummy, but healthy. So here is the dead easy recipe for the good old Aussie biscuit (cookie) the ANZAC . This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago.

Recipe # 1.

You will need:
1/2 - 3/4 cup plain flour
1 cup soft brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup dessicated coconut
Mix together in bow
Then melt together in microwave or on cooktop:
125gr butter (4ozs)
1 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbps boiling water
To this add:
    1/2 tsp baking soda (bicarb)
Pour wet mix into dry and mix together with wooden spoon.
Place teaspoons of mix on greased and paper lined baking sheets - about 10cm apart to allow them to spread.
Bake in 180C oven for about 10 minutes.
Keep an eye on them as they brown quickly.
Cool on rack till they go hard and crunchy.


  1.  You can use raw or white sugar but it makes the biscuits too sweet. Brown sugar gives them a more caramelly taste.
  2. Add the 1/2 cup of flour first and if still quite wet, add the other 1/4 cup. 


  1. These were my favourite from when I was young, so yum! I have tried other recipes and it's just not the same. Thanks :)

    1. I wonder if you could make them with Stevia Steph? I guess they wouldn't hold together too well.

  2. Yummy! I love anzacs. Nice photo too.
