Anzac Biscuits have been around for a long time in Australia, the chewy texture is so good! However, I was on the lookout for a "healthy" version of the recipe, and I have ended up adapting a recipe that I found online...I also added some dark chocolate drizzles which certainly isn't the traditional way, but I am a chocoholic so any excuse to use chocolate really...enjoy!

Makes about 25 biscuits 

Ingredients

1 cup of plain wholemeal flour
1 cup of desiccated coconut
1 cup of brown sugar (or 3/4 cup if you want it less sweeter)
1 cup of rolled oats
125 g of butter
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda/baking soda
1 tablespoon of warm water
50g of dark compound/cooking chocolate (optional)

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, coconut, sugar and oats.
  2. Melt the butter, vanilla and honey in a small saucepan over a low heat.
  3. Mix the bicarb soda and warm water to dissolve it.
  4. Stir the bicarb soda mixture into the butter and mix well until it all foams up.
  5. Remove from the heat and pour onto your flour mixture.
  6. Combine well until a dough forms. If the mixture is a bit dry, add in a few splashes of water.
  7. Rest for 30 minutes covered at room temperature.
  8. Using about a heaped tablespoon of dough, form round balls on a tray lined with baking paper. Then press the balls down gently with a wooden spoon (wet the spoon in water beforehand so the spoon doesn't stick to the dough).
  9. Bake in a preheated 150 C oven for around 15 minutes or until golden. To maintain a chewy texture, take the biscuits out when they are light brown (if they get too brown, they will be more crunchy than chewy).
  10. Cool for 30 minutes on a cooling rack (or I quite like them warm too).
  11. For some additional indulgence, melt the dark chocolate and use a teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits.
