Looking for a recipe for Anzac biscuits that are not only delicious, but also healthier than most? We’ve got the biscuits for you, courtesy of One Handed Cooks. These have around half the sugar and butter as most other recipes, but still taste absolutely incredible.
Baking Anzac biscuits is a time-honoured way to mark our country’s National Day of Remembrance. The famed biscuits were sent by wives and other women to sustain the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during World War I. The combination of golden syrup and oats, and the absence of eggs, meant the goods traveled long distances without spoiling.
