Anzac Day is almost here, which means it's time to start making our favourite quick and easy biscuit of the year. This recipe is very close to the traditional version we all know and love, but with slightly higher amounts of coconut, golden syrup and butter, the end result is more chewy than crumbly. I actually got 30 out of this recipe.
1¼ cups (110g) rolled oats
1 ¼ cups (110g) desiccated coconut
1 cup (150g) plain flour
150g Lurpak unsalted butter
¼ cup (90g) golden syrup
1 cup (220g) raw sugar
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the oats, coconut, flour and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Set aside. Place the butter, golden syrup and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Bring to a simmer and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, cool slightly, then add the bicarb soda and 1 tbs water. Stir to combine, then pour over the oat mixture.
2. Using a wooden spoon, combine butter and oat mixture. Using 1 tbs mixture each, roll into 24 equal-sized balls. Divide between two baking paper-lined baking trays, leaving 3cm between each.
3. Flatten biscuits slightly, then bake for 10-12 minutes until the top tray is slightly golden. Swap trays and cook for a further 6-8 minutes until all biscuits are golden. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
