Chef Ray – ANZAC Biscuits

With ANZAC Day (the equivalent of Memorial Day or Remembrance Day in Australia and New Zealand) today and it being school holiday’s my 9 year old daughter wanted to do some baking. ANZAC Biscuits like those made by Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops fighting at Gallipoli in WWI. Simple and easy to make.

From: Charles, Jackie (Aug 2007) 5 Ways With Oats in: Healthy Food Guide

Makes 22

  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 1½ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup castor sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place the oats, wholemeal and plain flour, coconut and sugar in a large bowl. Mix and set aside.
  3. Place the baking soda, golden syrup, oil and egg in a small jug and whisk to combine. Add to the dry ingredients and stir well.
  4. Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into 3cm balls. Place balls 4cm apart on the baking trays and flatten with a fork.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool on the trays then store the cookies in an airtight container.

Tip: add a few nuts or raisins to these ANZAC biscuits for extra texture and flavour.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
