Delicious Anzac Biscuits

Anzac biscuits are a traditional Australian favourite and a proof that just a few simple ingredients can make a tasty and comforting treat, perfect for dunking in tea. Quick and easy to make, too. Maybe not exactly healthy, but surely better than shop-bought sweets. And let’s be honest, a little cheat-treat on a Sunday won’t hurt… Right?


What you will need:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour (I used self-raising wholemeal but plain white will be ok)
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp boiling water
  • 80g butter



How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C. Line baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Place butter and syrup in a saucepan to melt.
  4. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water. Mix together with melted butter and syrup and add that mixture to dry ingredients. Mix to combine.
  5. Using your hands, roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls and press onto prepared baking trays. Leave some space between biscuits as they will spread while cooking.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

    I remember doing a project on Australia a few years back and making these biscuits for it. They were so tasty, and your recipe brought back some memories for me 🙂

      I’m glad to hear that, thanks. I’ve never been to Australia but always wanted to go, and finally, this November, I’m going! I’ll definitely check out Anzac biscuits over there 😉
