Nutrition: Recipe: Easy, Energy-Filled Anzac Biscuits

The ANZACs are the Australian and New Zealand army corps, who fought in World War 1 at Gallipoli. These biscuits were sent to them as a way to sustain them on the front-line (amongst other food).

With the current weather conditions of the UK winter, it seems like a bit of a battle out there for us cyclists at times as well, so I thought that this recipe might be appropriate as a nutritious snack to take out on the bike, and keep your energy levels high on those long winter base-mile rides.

  • 85 grams Porridge oats
  • 85 grams Desiccated coconut
  • 100 grams Plain flour (or spelt flour if you are gluten intolerant)
  • 100 grams Caster sugar
  • 100 grams Butter
  • 1tbsp Golden syrup
  • 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda

  1. Heat Oven to 180'C
  2. Put Oats, Coconut, Flour and Sugar into a mixing bowl
  3. Melt the Butter and stir in the Syrup
  4. Add the Bicarb. to 2tbsp of boiling water then stir into the syrup/butter mix
  5. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the melted mixture - stir in gently
  6. Put dessert-spoonfuls of the mixture onto a buttered sheet baking sheet (on a baking tray), about 2.5cm apart to allow for spreading, press into shape
  7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes until golden brown
  8. Cool on a wire rack before removing from the baking paper
Simples! Enjoy!
