Chocolate ANZAC Biscuits

I thought I would give you my recipe for chocolate ANZACs. They are really yummy and super easy to make. They were actually the first thing I ever baked from scratch when I was living away from home. I love this chocolate version so much I have never actually made the non chocolate version.

TIP: If you already have an ANZAC recipe that you like all you have to do to make the chocolate version is add 1/4 cup of cocoa to the mix.

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of desiccated coconut

¼ cup of cocoa powder

125 g butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

2 tablespoons of boiling water

1 teaspoon of bicarb soda


Preheat oven to 150 °C

Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Combine sifted flour and cocoa powder, sugar, oats and coconut in a bowl.

Melt butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat.

Dissolve bicarb soda in boiling water and then stir through butter mixture.

Combine butter mixture with dry ingredients and mix well.

Spoon heaped teaspoons of mixture onto the tray and lightly press each biscuit down with a fork.

Bake for 20 mins.

The biscuits will harden when cool.

For myself, I like to tweak the recipe a bit and add a touch more butter for some extra moisture and cook them 10 mins longer because I like them to be slightly overcooked and really crunchy when they cool.

ANZAC biscuits were also one of the first things I made when I moved out of home! They are easy and quick and there is something so homey and comforting about eating one. I haven't made the chocolate type before, I will have to give it a go.

That's funny that they were one of the first things you baked too. Probably because they are so easy and you don't need a mixer to make them.
