Ingredients:

  • 150 g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 100 g (1 cup) oatmeal
  • 50 g (2/3 cup) grated coconut
  • 170 g (3/4 packed cup) brown sugar
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) powdered sugar
  • 125g of salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Method:

  1. Preparation in the oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 160°C (320°F).
  2. Syrup and butter mixture:
    • In a saucepan, gently melt the butter with the golden syrup over low heat. Dissolve the baking soda in the water, then add it to the melted butter and syrup mixture. Mix well and remove from heat to cool slightly.
  3. Dry ingredients:
    • In another bowl, mix the flour, oatmeal, coconut and both sugars.
  4. Combination of ingredients:
    • Once the butter mixture has cooled, pour it over the dry ingredients. Fold everything together until well combined.
  5. Shape the cookies:
    • Scoop out large tablespoons of dough, roll them into balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten the balls slightly, making sure to leave space between them as they will spread when cooking.
  6. Pastry shop:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Adjust the baking time depending on whether you prefer softer or crunchier cookies.

Enjoy these delicious Anzac biscuits with their perfect combination of sweet flavors and comforting textures, ideal for any occasion or just to treat yourself!
