Healthy Anzac biscuits recipe

The humble Anzac biscuit is a delightful tasting treat and it's extremely easy to make. Anzac biscuits were originally created to be a yummy and satisfying snack that would last longer than the average biscuit, and they still have this quality today!

Serving Size:

Makes 15



  • 125 g butter
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tbs boiling water


Preheat oven to 175C (160C fan forced). Grease or line oven trays.

Melt butter with maple syrup in small saucepan over low heat until smooth.

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

Combine bicarbonate of soda and boiling water and add to saucepan and stir.

Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and stir well.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place them on your baking trays and flatten. Space well apart.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Cool biscuits on the trays, then enjoy!
