Looking for a delicious and healthy Anzac biscuit recipe? Look no further! These raw Anzac biscuits are a traditional Australian treat enjoyed on Anzac day. Traditionally these biscuits are made from oats, butter, sugar and white flour. So in the spirit of the occasion and tradition, I decided to create my healthy version. There is few different ingredient options, so hopefully you find the creation that works for you! If you are not familiar with Anzac biscuits, they are basically very yummy gooey oat and coconut biscuits.
I normally don’t use oats, so if you are like me, just replace oats with quinoa flakes. You can also choose sweetener of your choice, and if you choose to, you can make this recipe completely fructose-free too! So, surely all you food restricted people, like myself, can tweak the recipe to suit your needs and munch away on raw Anzac biscuits this year!
1 cup raw rolled oats (quinoa flakes for gluten-free option)
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
2 1/2 tbsp macadamia or coconut oil
3 tbsp rice malt syrup (or any other liquid sweetener of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla powder
- Place almonds in a food processor and run till they break into smaller pieces. Add rest of the ingredients and run until slightly sticky dough is formed. If the mixture is too dry, add few spoonfuls of water.
- Form little balls from the dough and flatten them. Biscuits are ready to enjoy! Store in the fridge.
