Anzac Day Biscuits


Mmm Anzac Day biscuits – crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  My Mother makes Anzac Day biscuits on a regular basis and I have been reminding myself to attempt a healthy recipe for a while. Since Anzac Day is coming up I figured it would be the perfect opportunity. And the result? Success! I adapted the recipe from I Quit Sugar and am very pleased with the result.

You would never know these are a ‘clean’ Anzac Day biscuit as the taste and texture is just as perfect as one filled with butter and sugars. They also leave a beautiful scent in your kitchen whilst baking in the oven.  Grab one with your cup of tea and enjoy!

1/2 cup rice malt syrup

Pinch of salt

1 ½ tsp baking soda
