Anzac biscuit mix in a jar recipe

You can make this Anzac biscuit mix in a jar and give it as a gift or just have this biscuit mix ready to go when you need it.



  • 1 x 800ml resealable jar
  • 1 cup plain flour, sifted
  •  1/4 tsp bicarbonate soda
  •  1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  •  1 cup rolled oats


Step 1. Gather all ingredients.

Step 2. Layer the ingredients in the listed order into the bottom of the jar. You can use a piece of paper rolled like a funnel if you want to ease the layers into the jar. Take care to press each layer down carefully ( between layers to press down each layer) so they appear clearly on the sides of the jar.

Step 3. Make a gift tag with the following instructions: Melt 3 tbsp of golden syrup with 125g (1/2 cup) of butter. Quickly add the biscuit mix from the jar. Mix well. Roll into balls and press down with a fork. Bake at 180°C conventional (160°C fan-forced) for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
