Coconut and Wattleseed ANZAC biscuits


These ANZAC biscuits are a true delight. Unlike most, they are free from refined sugar, gluten and dairy and have the added health benefits of native Wattleseed.

Serves 12

1 cup gluten free rolled oats
½ cup coconut flour
¾ cup shredded coconut
20 macadamia nuts, crushed
2 tbs ground, roasted wattleseed
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
¼ cup water
¼ cup maple syrup
⅓ cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
½ tsp sea salt
2 free-range eggs, beaten


Preheat fan-forced oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.

In a large mixing bowl combine oats, coconut flour, shredded coconut, macadamia nuts, wattleseed and bicarbonate soda. Mix well.

In a small pot, over a low flame, combine the water, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla bean paste and sea salt. Stir to combine and heat for one minute. Set aside.

Add the wet ingredients from the pot and the eggs to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Form small balls with the Anzac mixture and press firmly between your palms to form a flat cookie shape. Spread out evenly on baking sheets.

Bake in oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown.
