Chewy Anzac Biscuit recipe

Anzac Biscuit

Is there anything more Australian than home baked ANZAC biscuit? While we eat then year round, ANZAC Day is a special time when the ovens are working overtime baking the chewy sweet biscuit to commemorate our soldiers.

Originally sent by wives to soldiers posted aboard because they’d last the distance and didn’t spoil, plus with the added bonus they were a taste of home. Here is a simple recipe for you to use on ANZAC Day (or any day in fact!)


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  •  1 cup plain flour
  •  2/3 cup brown sugar
  •  2/3 cup desiccated coconut
  •  125g butter, chopped
  •  2 tablespoons golden syrup
  •  1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda


  • Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Place butter, syrup and 2 tablespoons cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir for 2 minutes or until butter has melted. Stir in bicarbonate of soda. Stir butter mixture into oat mixture.
  • Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on trays, 5cm apart. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden (see note). Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve.
