Anzac Day is coming up on Monday (April 25th) and I always make Anzac Biscuits! They are so tasty and super easy to make. Anzac biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers overseas because the ingredients didn’t spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during transportation. Today, Anzac biscuits are manufactured commercially for retail sale.

What you will need:

  • 1 Cup of Rolled Oats
  • 1 Cup of Plain Flour
  • ⅔ Cup of Brown Sugar
  • ⅔ Cup of Desiccated Coconut
  • 125g of Chopped Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons of Golden Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cold Water
  • ½ Teaspoon of Bicarb Soda

IMG_9628What to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 140°C-160°C and line your trays with baking paper
  2. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl
  3. Put butter, golden syrup and the cold water in a saucepan over medium heat
  4. Stir for 2 minutes or until butter has melted
  5. Stir in bicarb soda
  6. Stir butter mixture into oat mixture
  7. Roll mixture into balls and place them on your baking trays
  8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden
  9. Let them rest on the trays for 5 minutes
  10. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely

This recipe should make about 24 biscuits. Chewy Anzac Biscuits are one of our favourites! I usually only make them around this time of year but they are so delicious I think that needs to change! Today I gave one to Archer for the first time and he actually liked it. He is usually pretty picky about what he eats. He doesn’t like hard things like toast, but since these are the chewy kind and he loves oats, I thought I’d let him try it. I honestly didn’t think he would like them because the edges are a bit crunchy be he happily ate a whole biscuit!

    I think most kids would probably love these anzac biscuits because they are fairly plain, but sweet! We all know kids love sugar! I have never made (or heard of) these before, but am definitely interested in trying them out now. I don’t see a sharing option on your page, you may want to add that so people can pin your recipe for later 🙂
    Thanks for linking up with #KCACOLS. Hope you will come back again next Sunday!
