The History of Anzac biscuits
Anzac (Australia and NewZealand Army Corps) were the soldiers who fought in the first world war. Anzac biscuits were created in Australia during this time as they were ideal high energy treats for soldiers at war, and they were easy to pack.
I remember them as a childhood favourite. My mum would mix melted butter and brown sugar together with oats and all the other ingredients and they would end up super sweet and chewy. This recipe is a much healthier take on the original Anzac biscuits, and just as delicious!
What you need:
3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1/2 Teaspoon Bicarb soda
2 Tablespoons Boiling water
3/4 cup Spelt flour
1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
1/3 cup Coconut sugar
3/4 cup Rolled oats
1/2 cup KOJA Fig & Hazelnut
What to do:
Pre heat Oven to 180°C
In a mixing bowl, blend melted coconut oil with maple syrup. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix bicarb soda with boiling water. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix spelt flour, coconut, coconut sugar, rolled oats and KOJA.
Add the first 2 bowls to your large bowl and combine. If the mixture isn't coming together, add a little more coconut oil until just combined.
Spoon onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Use the back of a fork to press the balls down slightly. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Best enjoyed warm and soft straight from the oven, the biscuits will harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container.
