So….this year I made a batch of traditional ANZAC biscuits & a healthier batch with less sugar. Hubby loved the traditional – too sweet for me?!! But he didn’t mind there healthier version either…shows where his taste-buds are?!!
Here’s the basic recipe…you can adjust the flours as you wish, add nuts/seeds if you like, but I thought they were pretty tasty as they were!! And I’m sure your household will love them too….just don’t trial out the alternatives side by side!!! LOL
- ½ cup dried dates (I like to soak in water to ease chopping)
- ½ cup coconut flour (or 1 cup plain flour if wish)
- ½ cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup oats – gluten free
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- ½ cup melted coconut oil (or butter)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C & line a baking tray with baking paper.
- In a food processor place the dates & coconut flour (or plain), whiz until the dates are very finely chopped into a crumble.
- Add the desiccated coconut, oats, baking powder & salt & mix through.
- Add the coconut oil (or butter) & honey, combine all the ingredients.
- Heap the mixture onto a teaspoon & roll into balls, place the balls onto the tray. Using the back of a wet fork, press the balls into biscuits.
- Place in the oven & bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven & allow to cool & harden.
