Anzac Biscuits – Sort of…

7 Sep

Yesterday Littlest Miss and I tried to make Anzac Biscuits yesterday, but they wouldn’t come together.  We used the usually recipe, but just couldn’t form balls needed.  So instead, we made “Porridge and Golden Syrup Snack Bars”

Ingredients
1 cup Flour
1 cup Rolled Oats
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
2 tbsp Golden Syrup
125g Butter
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Hot Water

Pre-heat your oven to 160.

Line a square cake tin, or Lamington tin with baking paper.

Melt your butter and golden syrup and simmer gently for 5 minutes.

Combine all your dry ingredients in a large bowl, mix together and make a well in the centre.  Once your butter mix is ready dissolve the baking soda in the boiled water and then add to your butter/syrup mix.  Be sure to have the kids near by to see the reaction when the ingredients meet!

Pour your new mix into the dry ingredients and mix well.  This is where you would usually create your biscuits, instead press all of the mix into your slice tray and try to make sure it’s an even layer.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden.

Allow to cool and turn out.  Use a sharp knife and carefully cut into rectangles or squares.  Use any left over crumbs to sprinkle over a snack of yoghurt 🙂
