I usually make Anzac biscuits on Anzac Day, a national day to remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in wars. An Anzac Biscuit contains coconut, one of my husband's favourite ingredient. Being abroad, often he misses these biscuits and because it is quite an easy and quick to make, I often make it anytime of the year.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup desiccated coconut (or 1 cup if you want to taste the coconut more)
3/4 cup brown sugar
125 gr butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1) Pre-heat oven to 160 degree celcius. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
2) Mix flour, oats, coconut, and sugar in a large bowl.
3) Stir the butter, golden syrup, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth. Add in the baking soda into the mixture.
4) Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until well combined.
5) Roll the mixture into balls and place on the prepared trays. Flatten with a spoon until about 1 cm thick.
6) Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until light golden. Don't forget to swap trays halfway through baking.
