Enjoy these scrumptious Anzac biscuits that are perfect for a quick snack or dessert. Made with oats, coconut, and golden syrup, these biscuits are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. They have a rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. This recipe is quick and easy to follow, with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, flour, coconut, and sugar.
  3. Melt the butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth.
  4. In a small bowl, dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and add it to the melted butter mixture.
  5. Pour the melted butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well until combined.
  6. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving enough space between each biscuit for spreading.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits turn golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and let the biscuits cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
