ANZAC Biscuits

With ANZAC Day fast approaching there really is no better time to whip up a batch of deliciously chewy (that’s how I like them anyway!) ANZACS. It’s difficult to think of a more classic Australian biscuit than these.

ANZACS are so simple to make, and yet they are just the most delicious little things. Every single year I have a little tradition whereby I make a batch on ANZAC Day, but to be honest, these bikkies make an appearance pretty regularly in our household throughout the whole year!



Sometimes I like to play around with different varieties like cranberry and white chocolate or add in some chopped macadamia nuts, but I really think that the plain and simple version is my favourite. It’s certainly the one I come back to over and over again.

  4. Ooh yum! I add a big handful of macadamia pieces with the rolled oats, flour and coconut. Worth it – although it’s yummy without too!
