Anzac Biscuits: Australian oatmeal biscuits

Anzac Biscuits

Anzac biscuits belong to Australia like the amen in the church. And since my better half is Australian, it was about time that I too try myself THE #AussieSignatureBiscuits. But I have to admit that the baking process was a little nerve-wracking. Not because the recipe is so difficult - on the contrary, it's super easy peasy. But because I had to overcome a few obstacles - such as the lack of a kitchen scale for example. But hey, who needs it ?! Using a scale is only for beginners 😂😂 I definitely don't need it (anymore) and I think I have earned at least one bravery-baking-badge.

Anzac Biscuits ?! What is that supposed to be ?!

But back to the Anzac biscuits. For those who have never heard of Anzac Biscuits, here are a few explanatory words. And for the rest of you, jump to the recipe below ;)

Anzac Biscuits used to be called "Soldier Biscuits" and they were simply nothing more than that - cookies for soldiers. Because they were the easiest way to make nutritious food for soldiers long-lasting and transportable.


Did you know ANZAC is the abbreviation for Australian New Zealand Army Corps


Anzac Biscuits: the original recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, desiccated
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp soda

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160-180 ° C.
  2. Mix rolled oats, coconut flakes and sugar together.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan. Then add the syrup, water and soda and stir well.
  4. Pour the butter mixture over the rolled oats and mix to a dough.
  5. Divide teaspoon-sized portions. Form small balls out of it and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Press the balls a little flat. Tip: leave enough space between the cookies as they diverge slightly when baking.
  6. Bake the Anzac biscuits for about 10 - 15 minutes until they are golden.
  7. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then on a wire rack.

And another tip from me: Den dough schnell process quickly. As soon as it cools down it becomes a bit crumbly and is more difficult to process.

Tip for baking time: Those who prefer the cookies to be softer and "chewy" should bake the cookies a little shorter.

Anzac Biscuits a la Pop Up Girl

I like to try new things, replace ingredients and give classics a different twist. I did the same with the Anzac Biscuits. For example, I replaced the golden syrup with maple syrup, added a little cinnamon and a pinch of salt to round off the taste. If you want, you can also add dried fruits such as mango or cranberries. PS: A teaspoon of peanut butter in combination with the cranberries tastes just heavenly 🤗

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour, plain or wholemeal
  • 1 cup of brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, desiccated
  • 125 g unsalted butter or 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp maple syrupor honey
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • optional: dried mango or cranberries or peanut butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160-180 ° C.
  2. Mix rolled oats, coconut flakes and sugar together.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan. Then add the maple syrup, water and soda and stir well.
  4. Pour the butter mixture over the rolled oats and mix to a dough.
  5. If you want, you can now divide the dough in half. One half remains classic and for the other maybe try to add some dried fruits.
  6. Divide teaspoon-sized portions. Form small balls out of it and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Press the balls a little flat. Tip: leave enough space between the cookies as they diverge slightly when baking.
  7. Bake the Anzac biscuits for about 10 - 15 minutes until they are golden.
  8. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then on a wire rack.

I hope you like the Anzac biscuits as much as I do.
