Podcast: Gluten Free ANZAC Biscuits
These Gluten Free ANZAC Biscuits take the traditional elements of an ANZAC but give it a ‘Lisa friendly’ spin. Of course there are no oats, but the coconut and golden syrup bring the patriotic flavours to the simple to make biscuit. These ANZAC biscuits can also be made to suit your cookie preference; thin and crispy or thick and chewy. A quick poll on my Facebook page revealed most people prefer their ANZACs chewy, but traditionally they are thin and crispy. You get to decide which way your batch will go, or maybe do 1/2 and 1/2.
This cookies use only a small saucepan and a mixing bowl. The wet ingredients are gently heated (remember that coconut oil doesn’t like to get hot) and then stirred into the dry. It’s a great recipe to make with the kids. If you prefer thin and crispy ANZAC Biscuits flatten the balls of cookie dough with your palm and then spread the dough out thinner until each cookie is about 7cm in diameter. I did use a ruler for mine (kitchen nerd alert!!) but you could be a rebel and just wing it. The thicker biscuits are just squashed with your palm and then cooked for a bit longer.
