Low Fat Recipe
Old fashioned rolled oats and coconut add nutrition to these crunchy cookie-like Anzac Biscuits. These iconic biscuits were originally made to send to the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) serving in Gallipoli.
1-1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon pure coconut extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, coconut, flour and sugar and mix well. In a small saucepan, combine the butter and corn syrup over low heat. Cook until the butter is melted.
In a small bowl, combine the boiling water, baking soda and coconut extract. Stir until dissolved, and add to the butter mixture.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Press with a fork. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden on the edges.
