Anzac Biscuits


We've adapted these so they pack alittle more nutritional punch than the traditional!

Prep 10min / Makes 40

1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup coconut

1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 Tblsp Chia Seeds (optional)

1 1/2 cups Oats
100g butter
2 T honey or Golden Syrup for a more traditional flavour
1 tsp baking soda
5 T boiling water

Mix together flours, sugar, coconut, seeds and oats. Melt butter and honey. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and honey. Combine with dry ingredients. Place tablespoon lots onto baking trays. Bake 180 for 15mins or until golden brown.

Savvy Tips ...

# Time saver: Divide the mixture in half, add in cranberries & cashews to one half then you will get two types of cookies.

# The mixture is quite wet and will stick to your hands, wet them lightly with cool water to stop the mixture sticking.

# Flatten these with your palm to get a good height cookie - they don't alter shape much with cooking.

# You can also make these into bars - a great snack and a good sustitute for store brought muesli bars.

# Dip or drizzle with good quality dark chocolate - delcious!
