ANZAC biscuits

ANZAC biscuits are a delicious classic Australian treat made with oats, butter and a touch of golden syrup.


For many households they are a baking tradition at this time of the year. Everyone as their own take on this classic biscuit – this is ours. Easy to make, simply irresistible and great for sharing!

With very little mixing they are easy on the hands and great to get the kids involved.


  • 1 cup rolled oats (not instant oats)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 70g butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (bicarb soda)
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon butter for greasing



Pre heat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced)

  1. Grease 2 large oven trays and line with baking paper
  2. Combine the oats, flour, coconut and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Place the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and slowly melt over a low heat until smooth.
  4. Add the bicarb soda and boiling water to the melted butter. The bicarb soda will bubble and foam up.
  5. Pour the melted butter mix into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix together.
  6. Place teaspoons of the biscuit mixture on the lined trays (about 5cm apart) and flatten a little.
  7. Bake in over for 10-12 minutes until golden (chewy), or a bit longer if you prefer a crispy biscuit.
  8. Cool biscuits slightly on the trays before moving onto a wire rack as they will firm up as they cool down.

  • Spray your measuring spoon with a little cooking spray (or run under hot water) before measuring the golden syrup to prevent it from sticking to the spoon.
  • The biscuit mixture will spread during cooking so don’t place the blobs too close together on the trays.
  • The mixture can either be placed onto the baking trays with a teaspoon or rolled into small balls – whatever you find easier.
  • Biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for a week.
