ANZAC Biscuits

I love ANZAC biscuits (cookies for my US readers) all year round but if we’re home on ANZAC Day then it’s one day I definitely have to make them.




  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup  brown sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
NOTE: Australian tablespoon is 4 teaspoons


Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the oats, coconut and brown sugar.

Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.

Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.

Press with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 10-15  minutes or until golden brown.

Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack so it cools completely

*** Will keep in airtight container for one week (if not eaten before then) and will freeze for 2 months.
