Oaty Anzac Biscuits

Fat Mum Slim /

Anzac biscuits are one of my favourite sorts of biscuits, and homemade is always better. When I was nannying I used to make this Donna Hay recipe all the time. We almost always had the ingredients in the cupboard, and all the kids liked them too. Win. Win.

With Anzac Day a week away today, I thought I’d share the recipe with you…

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
2 tablespoons golden syrup
130g butter
1/2 teaspoon bi-carbonate soda
1 tablespoon hot water

♥ Combine all the dry ingredients {excluding the bi-carb soda} and mix in a bowl
♥ Place the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat and mix until melted. Add the bi-carb soda and the water.
♥ Add the butter mix to the dry mix. Combine.
♥ Form balls with dough and place on lined tray.
♥ Place in a moderate oven and cook for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

I like to keep mine as balls, so that they’re crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. You can squish these down a little if you like, but the dough is quite dry so it will likely crumble a little.

How do you like your biscuits? Do you prefer them chewy or crunchy?

Lacey and I made these together and as I was snapping the finishing photo I turned around to see Lacey with my iPhone trying to get her own shot. She’s a budding food blogger, it seems!
