Anzac Biscuits

While yes, I am aware Anzac Day is on a Sunday and today is Tuesday, Australia time, I still feel the need to share this delicious recipe of Anzac Day Biscuits for my friends and family. They go over very well every year and are a classic Australian treat, once given to our Australian Soldiers in the battle of Gallipoli.

200g flour
200g rolled oats
100g castor sugar
2 tablespoons ground wattleseed
100g desiccated coconut
125g butter
1 tablespoon boiling water
2 tablespoons golden syrup
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Oven: 170°C

Combine oats, flour, wattleseed, sugar and coconut. In a saucepan, melt the butter and butter and golden syrup. Mix in the water and the baking soda then stir into the dry ingredients. Take tablespoonfuls of mixture and place on lightly greased oven trays; allow room for spreading.

Bake in oven for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool on cooling racks.

For those that don't know where to get ground wattleseed:
