    They aren't native bread at all, minus the Golden Syrup they are ANZAC Biscuits, made during WWII by families and sent to our soldiers. Although due to rations Mums, Wives and Sisters of the soldiers had to reduce a bit of this and that and given the time it took for the boys to receive their homemade biscuits they were often rock hard ... so many soldiers would grind the biscuits on to a chunky powder and have a porridge breakfast given the oats in them. Would you rename them ANZAC Biscuits ... Cheers,<br/><br/><br/>Alison ...

    I always enjoy making recipes like this ~ Don't know exactly what to expect, but hope for the best ~ & most often they are very nice! These thingies are just unusual enough for me to serve at one of the monthly groups I host (this evening) & I'm sure they'll be a hit ~ They certainly are with the 2 of us! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the ZINGO part of ZWT5]

    Yummy! This tastes and has a texture somewhere between an oatmeal cookie and a granola bar. I did not knead it on a floured surface but instead kneaded it in the bowl. The dough was very crumbly and the kneading involved more of working the wet ingredients into the dry until they stuck together enough to be formed into the pan. I baked it in a greased pie pan for the full time indicated and cut it into wedges. Thanks Mand1642 for a nice treat! Made for ZWT5.
