Anzac Cookies

When my parents moved to Australia 10 years ago I discovered the most amazing biscuits ever. Anzac Cookies.


The oaty, coconutty, buttery yumminess that is these cookies.

I also decided as tomorrow is Anzac day in Australia I thought today would be the time to revive my old recipe for these tasty treats.

These are so simple and easy to make, they also only take 8 minutes in the oven to bake so they are great when you need something tasty quickly.


  • 100g Butter
  • 100g Sugar
  • 100g Plain flour
  • 85g Rolled Oats
  • 85g Dessicated Coconut
  • 1Tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tbsp Boiling water
  • Anzac-cookies1

PRe-heat the oven at 160c. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, oats and coconut together.

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan on the hob. Add the boiling water to the bicarbinate of soda. Mix, then add into the butter mixture.

Pour this mixture into the dry one and give it a good mix until everything is combined.

Place dollops of this mixture onto a lined baking try, make sure that you leave around 2cm around the cookie to allow for any spreading. Bake at 160c for around 8-10 minutes.

Leave to cool on the baking tray for around 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Happy Baking! R x
