Anzac-ish biscuits

Anzac-ish biscuits

This is a special Anzac Day edition!

In Australia we celebrate/commemorate Anzac day on 25th April each year. On this day we remember those who have fought for this country and lost their lives. Anzac stands for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

On this day it is quite a strong tradition here to make “Anzac” biscuits. I think Anzac biscuits, although now are a fairly standard biscuit treat, were originally a treat from war time and on a tight budget. Usually they primarily consist of oats, sugar, honey and butter!  Ok, so in this healthy recipe I have kept the oats at least. Hence, they are called Anzac-ish biscuits!

1/2 cup soaked dates, pulverised in the food processor.

1 1/2 cups oats

2 T nut butter

1 T coconut oil

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp bi carb soda, dissolved in 1 T hot water

Process all ingredients in the food processor and form into balls, then press down flat on a lined baking tray. Bake at 170 deg C for 20 minutes or until brown. Enjoy!
