Anzac Biscuits

Anzac biscuits are an Australian icon, they can be light and fluffy, chewy or even hard, but no matter how they are they are still terrific. Anzac biscuits are perfect for school lunches, morning tea, afternoon tea or anytime you want a snack. They are really easy to make, you can start a batch and be eating the biscuits within half hour. I always make a double batch because I love the idea of my children having oats in their biscuits because surely that makes them healthier than your usual biscuit? Plus the kids love them so I’m happy to make them.

Store these delicious Anzac biscuits for up to a week in an airtight container.
