freshly baked anzac biscuits


  • 150g plain flour 
  • 80g desiccated coconut
  • 90g rolled oats
  • 110g caster sugar 
  • 55g brown sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place the flour, coconut, rolled oats and combined sugar in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  2. Place the butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 mins or until butter is melted. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.
  3. Combine 1 ½ tablespoons of boiling water and the baking soda in a small bowl. Add to the oat mixture along with the butter mixture. Stir until well combined.
  4. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays, allowing space for spreading. Gently press each ball to flatten slightly. Bake for 15 mins for crisp biscuits. Set aside on the trays to cool completely. The biscuits will harden as they cool.
