So the other day Brendon said he wanted some Anzac biscuits.. So today I decided to make some.


  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (85g) Ward McKenzie desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the oats, coconut and brown sugar.
  2. Put the butter, golden syrup and 2 tbs water in a small saucepan. Stir over a medium heat until melted. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
  3. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.
  5. Press with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack so it cools completely.
That's all well and good except I used Vegan margarine instead of butter, but I remembered something my aunt had told me that tasted amazing, I have icing sugar and my aunt once mixed it with Philadelphia and it tasted AMAZING! As Philadelphia is off limits for me I decided to make some for Brendon's biscuits. And on mine I mixed icing sugar with margarine. But it took every fiber and cell of my Vegan being to not even taste that Philly mix. Because I knew if I did I would never forgive myself and I'm proud that I didn't!

The icing tasted good but the biscuits taste gross :( too much bicarb soda I think.
