The beauty of the humble ANZAC biscuit lies in its rich history and adaptability. You can customise this simple recipe by adding chocolate chips, cinnamon, peanut butter, really whatever you like! If you like yours crunchy, cook for a couple extra minutes. Prefer them soft and chewy? Take them out of the oven a little earlier and wait until they cool to eat. This is the best ANZAC biscuit recipe we’ve found which is a big call, but it’s one we’re willing to make. 

ANZAC Biscuits


1 cup Plain Flour

¾ cup Caster Sugar

1 ½ cups Rolled Oats 

1 cup Shredded Coconut

125g chopped Butter

¼ cup Golden Syrup

½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

1 tbs Boiling Water 


Preheat the oven to 180C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Combine the flour, sugar, oats and coconut in a mixing bowl.

Combine the butter, golden syrup, bicarbonate of soda and water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook for 2 mins or until the butter melts. Pour into the flour mixture and stir to combine.

Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on the lined trays, allowing room for spreading. Flatten slightly with the back of a fork. 

Bake for 12-15 mins or until golden brown. Set aside on the tray to cool completely.
