Anzac Day treats!

If you’re looking for the perfect way to show your love and respect for our fantastic country and its soldiers this Anzac Day, attend the dawn service of course, and then get to baking these Anzac Day treats!

We feel that everyone should be able to participate in this tradition, so we have sourced a range of Anzac recipes to suit all dietary requirements, and modified them slightly to make them healthier. We hope you find something that tempts you!

Add to the pot 1/3 cup wholemeal flour, ½ cup desiccated coconut, 1 cup rolled oats and 1/3 cup flaxseed meal. Stir well to combine. Form into small biscuits and flatten with a spoon, leaving enough room between biscuits for expansion. Bake on tray in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Recipe by The Nutrition Code
