ANZAC Biscuits

Afternoon Everyone!

Here's a little story for you:

Once there was a war.  A terrible war. It was called World War 1.  There were wives and mothers who were worried about about their men who were fighting in the war and what they were eating... as mothers and wives do.  Enter the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) biscuit.  Nutritional and would keep while been sent overseas to the front line.  These biscuits are sweet and caramelly with rolled oats (to keep you feeling full for longer).

Nowadays we still love our Anzac bikkies and eat them all year round.  Here is the recipe:

ANZAC Biscuits

1 cup coconut
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour 
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon golden syrup
4 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda

Mix together all of the dry ingredients (coconut, sugar, rolled oats, flour and salt).
Melt the golden syrup and margarine together in the microwave.
Mix together the boiling water and bi-carb soda. 
Add to the golden syrup and margarine and then add to the dry ingredients.
Bake at 180°C for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
