Anzac Biscuits

These Anzac Biscuits are a little different to the traditional recipe. They don’t contain any coconut, and they don’t need bicarb. soda, which is great because I have just run out of both. The kids love them, and they make a nice change from a muesli bar, yet they still have the goodness of oats. I double or triple this recipe because I usually only get about 16 biscuits out of one batch.


125g Butter

2 Tbl. Golden Syrup

1 Cup Self-Raising Flour

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Oats (you can use quick cooking if you like)


Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Melt butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over medium heat, or in the microwave. Cool slightly.

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Add butter and syrup mixture and mix to combine.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place approx. 5 cms apart on prepared trays.

Flatten slightly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until biscuits are golden. Cool on tray.
