Oaty Anzac Biscuits

For Christmas I was given two books - Donna Hay's Modern Classics. So far I've tried the oaty anzac biscuits, and my family liked them so much I ended up making it twice. They are very easy to make and you don't even need to use an electric mixer.

1 c rolled oats
1 c plain flour
½ c sugar
¾ c desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons golden syrup
125 g (4 oz) butter
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon hot water

Preheat oven to 160C (325F).
Place oats, flour, sugar, and coconut into bowl. Over low heat, melt syrup and butter together. Dissolve soda and water together and add to melted butter mixture.
Put liquid ingredients into bowl with oat mixture. Place rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake until golden, 10-12 minutes.



  1. Very easy to make. I kinda like that. My mixer stopped running for some reason (old age? ...whatever!) This recipe is perfect without my reliable partner. Thanks for the post!
