This recipe has been in our family since I was a girl,it's a favorite of every household here "Down Under". My Mother made them and my grandmother too! It was a favorite with the armed forces in first world war that is why they are called Anzac Biscuits. Everyone has a different version, with added ingredients or omitting some ingredients.


  1. Mix oats, flour, sugar and coconut together.
  2. Mix soda with boiling water and add to melted butter and syrup.
  3. Add to dry ingredients.
  4. Place 1 tablespoon of mixture on a greased tray.
  5. Bake in slow oven for 20 minutes at 160°C.

My 10yo just made these for Anzac Day tomorrow (if they last that long). Really nice, easy recipe with excellent results. We did need to reduce the cooking time to about 16 mins.

Easy, basic and good. I used rolled oats for a nice consistancy and no golden syrup in France so I used honey.

We absolutely loved these. We flattened them out a bit so they came out nice and crunchy, which is what we were after. Tasted just like the ones you buy in the supermarket. We only cooked them for 18 minutes and actually believe they should have probably come out after 17. Thanks so much - we will make these again and again.
