ANZAC Truffles

 “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.”

ANZAC Truffles

 The 25th of April is ANZAC Day. It’s a special day in Australia where we remember those who have served their country and those who never returned.
It’s quite a touching day where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to pay their respects to the men and women who have helped shaped the country we live in today. Without their service we may not be living in the lucky country that we do today.

It’s a sad fact that war touches the lives of most people. Whether it be a child wearing their Grandfathers medals, a mother mourning the loss of a child or a wife remembering the last time she saw her husband as he left to serve his country; the effects of war do not discriminate.

The legacy of the ANZAC biscuit can be traced back to WW1. It is told that the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers overseas as the ingredients did not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during the long journey to their loved one. The traditional ingredients of an ANZAC biscuit are rolled oats, flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, baking soda and boiling water.

Without wanting to be disrespectful to the ANZAC legacy, I wanted to create a treat that could be enjoyed by those who cannot eat oats (gluten), butter (dairy), or sugar. The traditional flavor of the ANZAC biscuit comes from the Golden Syrup and Coconut, which I have kept, and I used Almond meal in place of the oats.

Enjoy these ANZAC Truffles and remember to salute those who have given their lives so that ours may be.
