I must admit, I find it hard to go past a chewy and golden Anzac bicky!  I have converted the traditional Anzac into a healthier recipe – mainly for the kids (but I might have had to taste test one or two!) – and I reckon these are just as delicious as the original version.  I hope you enjoy them!

Healthy Anzac Biscuits

Makes approximately 20 biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 125 grams (1 stick) butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons hot water

Method:

Set the oven to 175 degrees and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Mix the oats, almond meal, coconut, chia seeds, and coconut sugar in a large bowl.

In a small saucepan on the stove melt the butter and the maple syrup until well combined.  Add the bicarbonate of soda to the hot water and mix together – add to the butter mixture.  Add this butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Using your hands form rough balls (about 1 tablespoon of mixture), mould together with your fingers and flatten into cookie shapes.

Bake in a 175 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  Let stand in the baking tray for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  You may need to re-mould them if they fall apart straight from the oven but they should firm up and set while they cool down.

Enjoy xx
