Anzac biscuits are a classic Australian sweet treat, often enjoyed on Anzac Day (April 25th) to commemorate the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served during World War I. These biscuits are known for their crunchy texture and golden syrup flavor. Here’s a traditional Anzac biscuits recipe for you to try:


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup (or substitute with honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it lightly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, all-purpose flour, desiccated coconut, and brown sugar.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter and golden syrup over low heat. Stir until well combined and smooth.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the baking soda with boiling water until the baking soda dissolves completely.
  5. Add the dissolved baking soda mixture to the melted butter and syrup mixture. It will foam up slightly.
  6. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir well until everything is thoroughly combined and forms a sticky dough.
  7. Take spoonfuls of the dough and roll them into balls, then place them onto the prepared baking sheet. Leave enough space between each ball for spreading while baking.
  8. Use a fork to gently flatten each dough ball, creating a crisscross pattern on top.
  9. Bake the Anzac biscuits in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
  10. Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Once cooled, store the Anzac biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature. They should stay crispy and delicious for several days.
