ANZAC Biscuits

Hello lovelies! Today’s post is a recipe for ANZAC Biscuits, which, for those of you who don’t live in Australia or New Zealand, are oat biscuits that were first made in World War 1 for soldiers since the ingredients did not spoil. With Remembrance Day coming up next week (11th) , I decided to make some ANZAC biscuits. Plus, I just really wanted to eat some… 😉

Serves: 18

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

Difficulty: Easy



1 cup rolled oats

1 cup plain flour

2/3 cup brown sugar

2/3 desiccated coconut

125g butter, chopped

2 tablesp golden syrup

1/2 teasp bicarb soda


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Place butter, syrup and 2 tablespoons cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir for 2 minutes or until butter has melted. Stir in bicarbonate of soda. Stir butter mixture into oat mixture.
  3. Roll mixture into balls. Place on trays, 5cm apart. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
