An easy Anzac Biscuit recipe

If you were born in the Southern Hemisphere you would've heard of Anzac Biscuits.

I was looking through Mum's pantry today and I decided to make my own.

All I had to do was buy the Oats because we didn't have any left.

The Recipe:

Ingredients

1 cup of quick cook oats
1 cup of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of desiccated coconut
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 Tablespoon of Golden Syrup or Honey
2 Tablespoons of Boiling Water
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of Butter

Note: I felt 1 cup of Sugar was too much and my Mum's Diabetic so I reduced it to 3/4 Cup.

Method

Mix Oats, Sugar, Flour and Coconut in a large bowl
In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the syrup/honey and butter together
Mix the soda to the boiling water and add to the melted butter and syrup/honey
Add the butter and syrup mixture to dry ingredients
Place mixture onto a teaspoon and then roll into small balls
Place each ball on a piece of baking paper on a tray

Oven temperature should be 175 degrees Celsius. Bake 10-15 mins, or until golden brown.

Here's a picture of the Anzac biscuits ready to be baked.


I should've spaced them out a lot more.


Once cooked, leave biscuits to cool, then remove from tray and place biscuits on a wire rack

we were able to break this apart but now they're odd shapes


Once the biscuits cool, they should be crisp.

Once cool store in an airtight container and they should last a few days.

I like the rustic homemade look and they tasted delicious.
