Anzac Biscuits/Cookies – tasty and crunchy

Here is a quick recipe for those tasty Anzac Biscuits.  We made our first batch yesterday.  They spread out a lot so be aware of that when you are putting spoonfuls on your baking trays.  One dessertspoonful for average size biscuits/cookies and one tablespoon for larger biscuits/cookies.

anzac biscuits


2 cups of organic rolled oats

1 and 1/2 cups of organic desiccated coconut

2 cups plain flour

1 cup caster sugar

4 tablespoons of boiling water

3 teaspoons of bicarbonate soda

250 grams of organic butter (8 ounces)

2 tablespoons of golden syrup

Method:  Take out a large mixing bowl place the rolled oats, sugar, coconut inside and shift the flour into it.  Mix with a wooden spoon till all mixed in together.  Take out a saucepan, put on low heat around 2, place butter and golden syrup together and melt and mix together slowly.  Take out a cup place the bicarbonate soda in and boil the water stir in mixture.  Once ready place the butter and golden syrup mixture into the rolled oats, sugar, coconut and flour mixture and mix in.  Then place the bicarbonate soda mixture in and stir until combined.  Grease your baking trays.  Spoon either dessert spoons or large teaspoons of the mixture onto baking trays, leave room for expansion.  Bake at 150 degrees celsius or 302 fahrenheit for approximately 15 -20 minutes.  Closer to 20 minutes if you like them crunchier.

When ready loosen gently and place onto cooling racks.
