ANZAC biscuits

If you’re not Australian you’ll probably have no idea what I’m talking about when I say ANZAC biscuits, but if you are Australian its just not possible for you to not know what they are! Now as patriotic as these cookies might be, they’re also just generally delicious so I make them even when its not ANZAC day. For those who don’t know what an ANZAC is all you need to know is that they’re sweet, chewy, made from oats and taste like little baked bits of heaven… just to be clear I was describing the biscuit.

This healthy version of an ANZAC could not be easier to make, so you can always have one around the house to beat those afternoon cravings. The only problem is because they’re healthier for me.. I eat even more of them!


1 1/2  cups rolled oats

1/2  cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup chopped almonds

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon water

METHOD whiz it all together in the food processor, make into little biscuits then place them on a tray and bake in the oven at 160 degrees (celsius) for about 20-30 minutes. Last but not least, put the kettle on and enjoy a cup of tea with your freshly baked biscuits! (store them in an airtight container in the cupboard) **if you want them to be gluten free just swap the oats for quinoa xx

  1. If I were to add say, some date pieces or cranberries, would I add more liquid to the mix?
    If so, what liquid would work best?

    Hopefully will make these tonight! Cheers for the awesome recipe, love a good ANZAC (thankfully all of our unhealthy version have all been eaten from the cupboard so I’m no longer tempted!)

    • Yum! I think cranberries in particular would work so well in these biscuits, might have to try that myself. I think you should be fine just adding the fruit, but if it seems to need more liquid maybe a little more water or a milk of your choice? hope that helps, good luck :)
