Anzac Biscuits

You know the saying, there’s nothing like a home cooked meal and in this case, home baked meal.

I thought I’d bring home a little closer to me by baking some Anzac Biscuits. There’s actually a little history to go with Anzac Biscuits. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and it was said that during the war, the wives of the soldiers would send them Anzac biscuits as the ingredients didn’t spoil easily. Today, their eaten usually on Anzac day (25th April) but why not just eat them whenever.

I thought I’d share the recipe I used as my Canadian pals enjoyed them a lot!


1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs golden syrup
125g butter
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 Tbs water


1. Preheat the oven to 160C
2. Line the tray with baking paper
3. Mix the flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar
4. Stir in a pan the butter, golden syrup, water & bicarbonate of soda over a medium heat
5. Stir the flour mixture and butter mixture together
6. Roll the mixture into balls and place them on the tray 5cm apart
7. Flatten with a fork
8. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes
9. Allow to cool for 10 minutes
10. Enjoy!

My friend and I also carved little pictures into our cookies just for fun before putting them in the oven.

I hope you’re all well and let me know if you make them too!
