  • Nice addition


  • Nice one !

    • In the ingredients it mentions no sugar, which is of course great ! By the method it however does mention sugar by step 1 ?


  • Nice to know there’s so many variations of the recipe. Especially as I couldn’t find them in stores this yr. but when u buy ANZAC biscuits (not sure if just around ANZAC day or all year) part of the proceeds go to the vets.


  • Ohh I don’t know… I’m thinking I’ll make Anzacs with caramel this year… so good but so bad!


  • Never noticed this when I commented 2 yrs ago but the recipe ingredients is missing the sugar ?AND the method states oats and sugar?? We are using Ancient Grain flakes instead of traditional oats are we not! Slightly confusing…But interesting none the least.

    • On first view they seem healthy, but these grain flakes are less healthy then you think.
      The manufacturing process used to make boxed cereal is so violent and denaturing that the proteins in the grains are actually rendered toxic and allergenic as a result. This is why whole grain boxed breakfast cereal is shockingly even more toxic than cheap boxed cereals made with white flour — because whole grains are higher in protein. The more protein, the more toxic the boxed cereal.
      The ingredient list contradicts the method (sugar, oats, grain flakes) as well.


  • These look healthy, delicious & lunchbox friendly. I wonder if there’s a substitute for the butter…


  • A nice healthy version for sure!


  • Very tempting. If I make them I will eat way too many. Thanks for the recipe.


  • they look amazing, thanks for sharing


  • These look and sound delicious


  • They sound a healthier alternative to the butter & sugar recipe. Thanks!


  • Yum they look fantastic!


  • I love Anzac Biscuits and so do my kids. Thanks for sharing.


  • Luckily have all these ingredients and going to give this a try, love that it is a different take on the original ANZAC bickie.


  • Thanks for your recipe for Anzac biscuits – just love these biscuits.
