Macadamia ANZAC Biscuits
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
MACADAMIA ANZAC BISCUITS
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup raw caster sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup Australian macadamia nuts, chopped
4-5 tablespoons golden syrup
135g unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon boiling water
Preheat oven to 150 or 160 degrees C. Combine the oats, flour, sugar, coconut and macadamias in a bowl. Set aside. In a small saucepan melt the combined golden syrup and butter. Mix the bicarbonate of soda and boiling water, add to the melted syrup and butter and stir into the dry ingredients. Drop rounded neat soup spoonfuls of mixture onto lined baking trays and flatten down carefully, using your fingertips. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool and store in airtight containers.
What's been on your ANZAC Day agenda, dear readers? And dear readers overseas, have you ever baked this iconic biscuit?

Aha! Two of my favourite things - ANZAC Biscuits AND Macadamias!! Bliss!!! ANZAC day is unbearably sad because of the tragic loss of life all around the world, but a day to reflect on how lucky we are downunder. Thanx for the recipe - it looks sensational!!

Hello there! A match made in heaven for you, then! ANZAC Day is indeed so very sad, but true we should all be grateful for our freedom and what those wonderful men and women sacrificed for us. Thank you for stopping by.

Love the addition of Macadamia nuts here, I can just smell the yuminess straight out of your oven!! We normally head to the pub and play two up, but this year decided on heading to Bilpin to go apple picking! Was a wonderful day out

Sounds wonderful Lisa ; )

what an inspired idea to put macadamias into this classic - iconic - biscuit.
30/4/2013 02:19:27 am
Why thank you ; ) I first came up with the idea in the late 1980s when my children were small. I have also, at times, added wattle seeds!

These looks so good... and healthy ,,,, right?
2/5/2013 02:11:59 pm
Um, yes... the oats component definitely makes them healthy ; )

Ah Lizzy, following on from my comment re the macadamia and checking your Anzac Biscuit recipe, I find that my recipe is not very different. I firstly toast macadamia nut chips, ground ginger powder, then put diced crystalized ginger on the top of the biscuit when formed before baking. I feel this recipe screams Sunshine Coast and having read many comments of how expensive the macadamia nuts are (& yes this is the comment from my US friends)
20/4/2014 05:50:48 pm
Hi Marilyn, how about that! I hadn't thought of adding ginger. Nice idea!
20/4/2014 05:30:50 pm
Love Anzac biccies, and I think I better make these for my husband on Anzac Day, his birthday!!
20/4/2014 05:49:40 pm
Excellent, happy birthday to your husband : )
24/4/2014 12:11:22 am
Thanks Liz!!! Funny thing is, when we lived in Cobar NSW, 2 neighbours were both Anzac Babies too, we certainly had a fabulous get together for birthday celebrations, as well as remembering the Anzacs x

Love the way you have styled these
