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.


Ingredients:

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


Instructions:

* 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!
