These delicious ANZAC’s are in memory of our Diggers.
Ingredients (makes 36 biscuits)
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 cup traditional oats
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/4 cup wattleseeds
- 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, crushed into chunky bits
- 1/4 cup NESTLE BAKERS' CHOICE white chocolate bits
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 125 g butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup golden syrup
- 2 tbs water
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Extra white choc and macadamia nuts for decorating top (optional)
- Preheat oven to 160C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- In a medium bowl, sift flour. Add oats, coconut, wattleseeds, macadamia nuts, choc bits, caster and brown sugars. Mix well.
- Combine butter, golden syrup and water in a small saucepan over low-medium heat and stir until butter melts and mixture is well combined. Remove from heat and stir in bicarbonate of soda. Add immediately to dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to stir until well combined. (if you feel the mix is a little to dry for you, you can add a small amount more of water or golden syrup).
- Roll walnut-sized portions of mixture into balls and place on prepared tray about 5 cm apart. Gently press each ball with your finger to flatten. Sprinkle with extra macadamia nuts (optional). Bake 15-20 minutes until cooked to your liking.
- Remove from oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. The biscuits will harden as they cool.
- TIP: For a soft, chewy Anzac biscuit ..Omit the brown sugar and increase the caster sugar to 3/4 cup. Bake for 15 mins. For a thin and crispy biscuit ..Omit the caster sugar and increase the brown sugar to 3/4 cup. Bake for 18-20 mins.
- After the ANZAC's are cooled you may wish to drizzle with white chocolate and macadamia nuts like I have or just macadamia nuts or simply leave them plain topped, the result is up to you. Enjoy and HAVE A WONDERFUL AND BLESSED ANZAC DAY Everyone.
Everyone has different taste and texture likes when it comes to Anzac Biscuits so experiment but most of all have fun experimenting to get your desired texture. The photo under the plate is a photo of my Granduncle who was killed in service. Lest we forget.
