The biscuit that most of us know as the ANZAC biscuit is a sweet biscuit made from rolled oats and golden syrup.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup dessicated coconut
  • 125 grams butter chopped
  • 2 tbls golden syrup
  • 2 tbls cold water
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • Preheat oven 160C


  1. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Place butter, golden syrup and water in a saucepan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Stir in bicarbonate soda.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients in bowl.
  4. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on biscuit trays about 5 cms apart. Flatten slightly.
  5. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes until golden for chewy and 15-16 minutes for crunchy.
  6. Cool on wire racks and serve them to your troops!

  • Yum. Haven’t used brown sugar in an Anzac Biscuit recipe but sounds like it would add just that little bit more flavour. Thanks.
