What’s not to love about a midweek day off!? We can’t think of any reasons not to be excited for the ANZAC day public holiday.
Not only is a great excuse to get outside and hang out with loved ones, it’s an even better one to jump in the kitchen and whip up some ANZAC biscuits (after we’ve paid our respects to the diggers, of course!)
ANZAC biccies are a tradition that stems back to world war one with a really great story that you can read about here, and they are so relatively healthy that you could technically eat them for breakfast, or to get you through that dreaded 3pm slump.
The GREAT news is that even though we have a day off mid week you can stay on track with your goals, enjoy a biscuit and be guilt free come Thursday.
Here’s our favorite ANZAC biscuit recipe for you to try out tomorrow.
You’ll be needing:
125 grams butter
1 tbs golden syrup
2 tbs boiling water
1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar
How to do it:
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
Melt the butter and syrup over a low heat, then add boiling water mixed with the bicarb soda.
Pour the liquid into the combined dry ingredients and mix well.
Drop teaspoons of mixture onto baking trays lined with baking paper. Allow space on either side for spreading during cooking. Because no one likes stuck together ANZAC biscuits...
Bake for 20 minutes then leave to cool on trays. If you manage to not gorge on your spoils, store the remaining biscuits in an airtight container (once cool).
