Preheat the oven to 180 C / Fan 160 C / Gas Mark 4.
Put the oats, coconut, flour and sugar in a bowl.
Melt butter in a saucepan, until melted mix golden syrup into the melted butter. Add the bicarbonate of soda to the boiling water (mixed) then add to the butter and golden syrup mixture.
Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients (a hole in the middle of the mixture) and pour in the butter mixture. Stir gently to the dry ingredients.
Put spoonfuls of the mixture on a greased baking tray (or lined with baking parchment). Kept in mind that the biscuits need room to spread, place the spoonfuls away from a certain space depending on the size. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden. Then place on a cooling rack.
Once cooled... Well that's it... All you have to do is take a bite and thank me later :)
I have just made these. I have never heard of Anzac biscuits before so though why not
They are so yummy little like foxs only you want more and more! I Fildeled a little with them. I used 50g caster suger and 50g of dark brown suger (melted with the butter), three tbsp of golden syrup and I also made nine giant ones.
I love them, the kids LOVE them and I know my husband will when he get's home if they are any left!
***So i made these again following the instructions to the nail and I would highly recommend the brown sugar.*** - 17 Feb 2012
