Delicious ANZAC Biscuits

Anzac biscuits have long graced our tables as we remember the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought for our country. They are rumoured to have been made by the soldiers’ wives and sent in care packages as they would last a long time.

Here is our favourite recipe for them and they're easy to do with the kids!

Makes 16
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup plain flour, sifted
  • 125g butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp bi-carb soda
  • 3 tbsp boiling water
 
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees or 160 degrees for fan forced
  2. Place the oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Melt the butter over a medium heat. Then add the maple syrup and honey and heat for a further 2 minutes until combined.
  4. Mix the boiling water with the bi-carb soda. Once the butter mixture is off the heat immediately add the bi-carb soda mixture. It should bubble.
  5. Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  6. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  7. Take a tbsp or ice-cream scoop of mixture and place on the baking tray. Ensure to leave enough space for them to spread (about 6 cm apart).
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. When they first come out of the oven they will be soft, let them harden slightly on the tray and then move to a cooling rack.
  10. Enjoy!
