Chocolate Chip ANZAC Biscuits

Chocolate Chip ANZAC Biscuits

As surely all food bloggers know from experience, it is possible to post about something you made months ago while glossing over the fact that you made it months ago. In the case of today’s Chocolate Chip ANZAC Biscuits, such fudging of the facts is impossible. ANZAC biscuits (read: cookies [if you’re North American]) are synonymous with ANZAC Day, April 25, and as such I can’t pretend I didn’t make these three months ago. (Double negative win!)

ANZAC biscuits are made of rolled oats, flour, coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, and bicarb soda. They are associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), established in World War I, because they were sent to soldiers abroad by their wives. Due to the lack of egg in the ingredients, the biscuits were durable and did not spoil easily, making them a good option for care packages. Mmm, care packages.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 125g unsalted butter/vegan spread (like Nutellex or Earth Balance)
  • 2 tbs of maple syrup (but please use golden syrup if you have it)
  • 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips (I used 2/3 cup, which made for terrifically chocolate-packed cookies, but the dough may be less delicate if you use 1/2 cup)
