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
- 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
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.
