Crisp Anzac Biscuits

- Advertisement -



  • 125g butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 cup flour


Preheat oven to 180 C
Gently melt the butter and golden syrup together.
Mix the sugar, oats, coconut and flour together in a bowl
Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and ado to the golden syrup mixture.
Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll the mixture into balls and place on a greased or lined  tray, flatten with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes until a golden brown colour.

*The more you flatten the biscuits and the longer you cook them for, the crunchier they will be.  For chewy biscuits leave them a bit thicker and don’t over cook.
* I like a crunchy biscuit and often add an extra tablespoon of golden syrup and also press them flat.

  2. I make these biscuits withy my own mix of Gluten Free flour, they are very yummy. I guess you could use bought GF flour but I find it too expensive to use for the amount of baking I do.
    I have just been in Australia for 4 weeks and the GF products are much less expensive there and when you require GF bread or soy milk in food you order at a cafe there is NO extra charge. Very commendable.

  3. The best recipe for these biscuits that I have ever made. Duckshooter went off with some in the tucker bag !
    Thanks Helen.

  4. I used your recipe but why wouldn’t they roll into a ball!!!
    Must admit I used ½ thread coconut and ½ dessicated coconut, would that be the problem?
