What’s not to love about a good ol’ Anzac biscuit? They’re budget-friendly, a cinch to make, and they just melt in your mouth like no other biscuit.
But because of their ingredient list that reads a lot more like a butter heart attack, there’s also a good chance you’ve attempted to whip up a “healthy” version of our favourite biscuit, and there’s also an extremely good chance that you were left with a batch of dry, tasteless rocks.
This healthy Anzac biscuit recipe won’t leave you disappointed. Honestly speaking, you won’t even miss the kilo of butter, sugar and flour that’s used to make the OG version. And when you thought there was no biscuit that could trump the mighty Anzac, well this one tops them all with a finishing drizzle of chocolate. Because let’s face it – chocolate makes everything 100 times better.
Chocolate Drizzle Anzac Biscuits
Prep 20 min
Cook 20 min
- 200g rolled oats, divided
- 50g desiccated coconut
- 80g almonds
- 60gm coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp water
- 40g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1. Preheat oven to 160°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Add 150 grams of the oats, coconut and almonds into a food processor and blitz until the almonds are processed and everything is finely ground. Add the coconut oil, honey, vanilla and water and pulse until the mixture is combined and sticky. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and mix through the remaining rolled oats.
3. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 14 balls and place onto a baking tray, flattening them down slightly. Transfer to oven and bake for 20 minutes. Cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to wire track to cool completely.
4. Place the chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of simmer water and allow to gently melt. Use a spatula to scrape the chocolate into a piping bag (or use a fork) to drizzle chocolate over the biscuits. Allow to cool again at room temperature until chocolate is set.
5. Leftover biscuits can be stored in an airtight container in a cool place for 3 days.
Note: if mixture does not come together, add another tablespoon of water.
