  • Yum, sounds delicious and easy. Will be giving them a go.


  • Love dipping these into my coffee!


  • Sounds and looks great – thanks for sharing.


  • I don’t bake them or too long otherwise when they are cold they can be very hard to bite – you don’t want damaged teeth.


  • Ooh yummy, sounds rather delightful, thanks for sharing.


  • Thank you for this, forgot to make them this year. Had all the things for them, will have to give this recipe a go.


  • Warm ANZAC biscuits sooo good. They don’t last very long in our house, but well worth the time spent together! Making them!


  • We love Anzac biscuits, but I’ve never made them myself. I can buy a 12-pack at Coles for $2.50, so they’re a regular go-to.


  • My kids love homemade Anzac cookies. I make then gluten-free with quinoa flakes instead of oats and buckwheat flour instead of plain flour. I make them a bit healthier using yacon syrup instead of golden syrup, 1/4 cup of coconut palm sugar instead of 3/4 cup brown sugar and raw vanilla powder instead of vanilla extract. I often add macadamia nuts and prefer not to add orange or lemon zest.


  • I’m definitely going to be cooking these but without the orange zest. I love that they are chewy because my biscuits never seem to be crispy.


  • Just made a batch for my son to take to school-but not because it’s Anzac day, because it was his birthday and they are his favourite biscuit!


  • perfect recipe for anzac day next week!

    • It is a the perfect time and a reflective time too.


  • We love to make Anzac biscuits and the smell of these biscuits throughout the house is always so wonderful. Thanks for sharing your recipe for chewy Anzac biscuits.


  • Thanks for your chewy Anzac bikkies,they look great!


  • Oh yum so delicious. I don’t think I will ever get sick of Anzac biscuits, although I prefer crunchy over chewy
