Anzac biscuits with coconut

Anzac biscuits with coconut




  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water



Preheat oven to 180C. Line 3 trays with baking paper.

Place flour, coconut, sugar and rolled oats in a large bowl.

Melt butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan (dont burn!), then add bicarb and water.

Fizz! Stir butter-foam into dry ingredients and mix well.

Roll a heaped teaspoonful into small balls and place on trays.

Leave about 3cm between them. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Cool slightly before lifting off with a spatula to cool on wire racks.


  • In my oven (new fan force switch, hooray!) half the biscuits were, ahem, overdone at 10 minutes. Check frequently!
  • They should spread and flatten nicely. If they are a bit puffy, remove them from oven, squash with spatula and return to oven to finish cooking (a nifty trick from my auntie).
