Equipment

  • 2 x Baking Trays

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Plain Flour 150 grams
  • 1 Cup Caster Sugar 220 grams
  • 1 Cup Coconut 90 grams
  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats 110 grams
  • 125 grams Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water 30 grams

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line two baking trays with paper.
  • Mix together the plain flour, caster sugar, coconut and rolled oats in a large bowl.
  • Melt the butter and add the golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda (dissolved in the boiling water).
  • Make a well in the centre of the bowl, add the liquid and stir through.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop up mixture and roll into balls.  Place on the tray and flatten slightly.
  • Bake for approximately 18 minutes, or until the biscuits have turned a dark golden colour.  If you prefer a crispy biscuit, cook for 20 minutes (I like my biscuits to still be a little chewy in the middle).
  • Carefully remove the trays from the oven and allow the biscuits to sit for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thermomix Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line two baking trays with paper.
  • Place the butter (which has been cubed) and golden syrup into your Thermomix bowl and cook for 3 minutes, 60 degrees, speed 2 to melt.
  • Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix for 7 seconds, speed 7 to combine.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the flour, coconut, sugar, rolled oats and water - please note you do not need to use boiling water when making this recipe in the Thermomix. Mix for 10 seconds, speed 5 on REVERSE.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 4 on REVERSE to combine.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop up mixture and roll into balls.  Place on the tray and flatten slightly.
  • Bake for approximately 18 minutes, or until the biscuits have turned a dark golden colour.  If you prefer a crispy biscuit, cook for 20 minutes (I like my biscuits to still be a little chewy in the middle).
  • Carefully remove the trays from the oven and allow the biscuits to sit for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • For a crunchy biscuit, cook for a further 2 -3 minutes
  • After removing your biscuits from the oven, let them cool on the trays for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. If you try to move them straight from the oven, they will crumble.
  • If you don't have any golden syrup, you can use rice malt syrup in it's place.
  • These biscuits are also delicious when made with wholemeal plain flour.
  • To store, pop your biscuits into an airtight container and store in a cool, dry spot for up to 10 days.
  • These biscuits are also freezer friendly once cooked.
  • To make Chewy Anzac Biscuits, place the balls of mixture onto a baking tray and do not flatten. Remove the Biscuits from the oven when they just turn golden, as overcooking will result in a crunchier biscuit.
