Anzac Biscuits (recipe)

Here is my recipe for Anzac biscuits. These are probably the easiest biscuits to make and quick to prepare.

Anzac biscuits are a popular sweet biscuit made using rolled oats, flour, coconut, sugar, butter and golden syrup. The story goes that these biscuits were sent to soldiers abroad because they keep for a long time.

Here is the recipe I use:


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 0.75 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 125 g butter (half a block)
  • 1.5 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water


Turn the oven on to 175 degrees C.

Mix flour, oats, sugar, and coconut in a large bowl.

Using a saucepan, melt the butter and golden syrup.

Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the water, then stir into the syrup.

Pour the   liquid into the dry ingredients and mix.

Put baking paper onto trays. Roll the mixture into balls about 3 cm in diameter and place on the paper about 6 cm apart as the biscuits spread when cooking.

Cook for 15 minutes until golden brown.
