It doesn't have to be Anzac Day to enjoy a crisp Anzac biscuit! They're super easy to make with the kids, you would be crazy not to bake up a batch for a tasty treat with a cup of tea.


  • 125g (4oz) butter, chopped
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup or treacle
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats (see tips)
  • 1 cup (150g) White Wings Plain All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup (220g) firmly packed CSR Brown Sugar
  • ¾ cup (60g) desiccated coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease large oven trays; line with baking paper.
  2. Stir butter and syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Stir in combined soda and the water, then remaining ingredients.
  3. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls; place 5cm (2in) apart on lined trays, then flatten slightly.
  4. Bake biscuits for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool biscuits on trays.
Spray your measuring spoon with a little cooking oil spray before scooping up the golden syrup; this will help prevent the syrup from sticking to the spoon. Make sure you use rolled oats rather than quick-cooking oats as they will produce a different result. Anzac biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
