The Worlds Best Anzac Biscuits Recipe:
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup raw sugar
- ¾ cup dessicated coconut
- 1 cup plain flour, sifted
- 125 g butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
- ½ tsp bicarb soda
- 3 tablespoons boiling water
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, no fan. (If your oven is fan forced, drop it down to 160 degrees)
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Place the oats, coconut, flour and sugar in a bowl, stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Melt the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat. In a separate bowl, combine the bicarb and boiling water, then add this to the butter/syrup mixture. It will probably foam up and increase in size. That’s good. Pour this foaming mess into your dry mix and stir.
Once it’s all combined, roll into golfball sized balls, or, using a spoon, drop mixture onto trays, spacing them about 6cm apart.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Sometimes if your oven isn't great, like mine, you need to rotate the trays by 180 degrees halfway through baking so you get an even bake.
Cool on trays, or transfer to wire racks. Store in an old biscuit tin that you found in an op shop, or swiped from your grandma. They’ll last months. Try not to scoff them all within the day.
