Granma’s Anzac Biscuit Recipe


  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 Cup Flour (this is plain flour)
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 1/4 Pound Butter
  • 1 Dessert Spoon Golden Syrup
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Bi Carb Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Boiling Water
  • Pinch Salt


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together
  2. Add butter/soda mixture last
  3. Put a teaspoon of mixture on greased tin and bake until brown


Now – the recipe I have been using for the past 20 years only varies slightly from my Granma’s.  My recipe calls for a 1/4 cup of golden syrup and uses white sugar instead of brown – so I decided to give Granma’s recipe a taste test this morning.

My husband Terry and I stood there rolling a double batch of biscuits – just so we could have some to send home with the grandkids!!

Our conclusions:  Yum Yum Didily Yumious !!!  The brown sugar makes a lovely difference to the overall taste – I recommend EVERYONE tries it!!
