Anzac biscuits

You'll need

1 cup rolled oats 1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/2 cup desiccated coconut 125g butter, chopped 2 tbsp golden syrup or treacle 1 1/2 tbsp water 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)


If you like the biscuits soft, decrease the oven temperature and/or the baking time; experiment with a few biscuits until you achieve the texture you like best.

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160°C/325°F. Grease oven trays; line with baking paper.
  • 02
  • Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Place butter, syrup (spray the measuring spoon with cooking-oil so all the syrup comes away) and the water in a small saucepan; stir over low heat until smooth. Stir in soda, then stir into dry ingredients.
  • 03
  • Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls; place 5cm (2-inches) apart on trays, flatten slightly. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden; cool on trays.
