  • 1 1/4 cups (110g) Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/4 cups (110g) Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup (90g) golden syrup
  • 1 cup (220g) raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate Soda

Step 1: Preparing the Oven and Ingredients

Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, desiccated coconut, plain flour, and a pinch of salt. Set this dry mixture aside for later use.

Step 2: Creating the Golden Syrup Mixture

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter and mix in the golden syrup and raw sugar. Stir continuously until the butter is completely melted. Allow the mixture to simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes, making sure the sugar dissolves completely. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow it to cool slightly.

Step 3: Combining Wet and Dry Ingredients

To the cooled golden syrup mixture, add the bicarbonate soda and 1 tablespoon of water, stirring until fully combined. Pour this wet mixture over the oat mixture you prepared earlier. Using a wooden spoon, thoroughly combine the wet and dry ingredients.

Step 4: Rolling and Placing the Biscuits

Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the combined mixture for each biscuit, rolling it into a ball. You should have approximately 24 equal-sized balls. Place these balls onto two baking paper-lined baking trays, leaving about 3cm of space between each biscuit.

Step 5: Baking and Cooling

Flatten the balls slightly before placing them in the preheated oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the top tray's biscuits have a slightly golden appearance. Swap the trays' positions and continue baking for another 6-8 minutes until all the cookies are golden brown. Remove them from the oven and let them cool completely on a wire rack.

With these easy-to-follow steps, you'll have a batch of delightful Anzac biscuits ready to enjoy in no time. Enjoy the heavenly combination of crispy edges and chewy centers as you savor these iconic Australian delights, steeped in history and tradition, perfect for commemorating and celebrating the Anzac spirit.
