ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. During my research I read about how these biscuits were sent to soldiers during WWI because they don't spoil easily.
Australian Anzac Biscuits
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of coconut
1 cup of rolled oats
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
2-3 tablespoons of honey (or golden syrup)
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tablespoon water
Heat the oven to 350F. Line or grease 2 baking trays.
In a small saucepan melt the butter over a medium heat. (Or microwave until melted.) Add the honey, baking soda, & water to the butter and stir well. Set aside.
Mix together the flour, oats, sugar, coconut, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Add the melted butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. The finished dough will be crumbly.
Roll about 1 tablespoon of dough into small balls and flatten between the palms of your hands. Place dough on baking tray.
Bake the biscuits for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them sit on the baking tray for 5 minutes.
Remove the biscuits from the tray and cool on a wire rack.
Yield: 20-24 biscuits
Store biscuits in an airtight container.
