If you’re from Australia or New Zealand you know all about Anzac Biscuits. The delicious treat you would have made as a child, that was probably always in your Grandmas biscuit tin and that the women made in war times to send to soldiers.

I was reminded yesterday by my niece Victory in Australia that today was Anzac Day. She was painting a beautiful poppy mural in there front window so JJ and I thought we’d whip up a batch of biscuits.

The recipe is really simple and perfect for mini hands to help with!



1 cup of oats or granola (I used granola for these ones as it’s all I had and they are delicious!)

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of sugar

3/4 cup of coconut (optional)

125g butter/margarine

1 tablespoon of golden syrup

2 tablespoons of boiling water

1 1/2 teaspoons of bicarbonate soda



In a bowl mix together the flour, oats, sugar and coconut. Melt the butter and syrup together over a gentle heat. Dissolve the bicarbonate soda into the boiling water and stir into the butter and syrup mixture. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredient and mix well with a spoon. Roll into small balls and place onto a tray with space for them to spread. Have your oven preheated to 175 degrees and bake biscuits for 15 minutes.

Although this year we can’t attend services we remember our fallen heros and the ultimate sacrifice they made. Whilst also thanking our current serving men and women who are working around the world away from there families and friends to keep us safe.

Lest we forget.
