  • oven


  • 1 cup rolled oats to make them gluten-free, use certified gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour to make gluten-free Anzac Biscuits substitute 1 cup of gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 125 g butter - diced
  • 1 tablespoon of golden syrup other liquid sweeteners you could use - corn syrup, treacle or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
  • 2 tbs boiling water


  • Preheat the oven to 150ºC or 300F
  • Line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  • In a large mixing bowl add in the oats, GF flour, coconut and sugar and stir to combine.
  • In a microwave bowl, add the butter (cubed) and the golden syrup (or maple syrup) and place in the microwave and melt (about 20 to 30 seconds depending on your microwave.
  • In a small bowl, add in the bi-carb soda with the boiling water and then add it to the melted butter mixture.
  • Stir the butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
  • Using a tablespoon, place tablespoons of the mixture onto the oven trays.
  • TIP - you can roll them into balls and it will give you a more dense biscuit or roll and then flatten them in the palm of your hand and they will make a more crisp biscuit. (When placing them on the oven tray leave some space between each one for spreading.)
  • Bake in a slow oven for 10-15 minutes at 150ºC or 300F.
  • Remove from the oven and allow for them to cool on the tray and then remove with a spatula
  • Once cooled, store them in an airtight container (if there are any left ).... enjoy!!!
