Gluten Free Anzac Cookies

Updated: May 11, 2020

Today is a very special day for Australians and New Zealanders. Anzac day is a day of remembrance that commemorates all those who served their country during times of war and is celebrated every year on the 25th April.

So I thought, why not make some scrumptious Anzac Cookies.

With flour and many baking supplies hard to come by these days, I turned to some coconut alternatives. However, if you have regular sugar and flour, and prefer to use these, this recipe works exactly the same with the same quantities.


3/4 Cup Oatmeal

3/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut

1 Cup Coconut Flour

1 Cup Coconut Sugar

8 Tbsp Butter

1 Tbsp Golden Syrup.

1 Tsp Baking Soda


* Pre-heat Oven to 350F

* Grease a baking sheet.

* Place Flour, Sugar, Oats and Desiccated coconut into a large bowl. Make a 'well' in the bowl with the ingredients.

* Melt the butter in sauce pan.

* Add Golden Syrup to the melted butter.

* Mix 1 Tsp Baking Soda with 2 Tsp of boiling water, mix until dissolved.

* Stir into the butter and golden syrup mixture.

* Slowly pour the melted butter, golden syrup and baking soda mixture into the dry goods bowl.

* Stir until all the dry ingredients have been incorporated

* Place a dessert spoon amount of mixture onto the baking sheet, ensuring enough space is left between the cookies.

* Cook 8-10mins. Leave to cool.

Happy Anzac Day Australia and New Zealand!
