30+ Anzac Biscuit Recipes

A collection of various Anzac Biscuit recipes for Anzac Day which the family will love. 

Anzac Day is on Monday so wanted to put together a collection of Anzac Biscuit recipes, along with  some delicious slice variations, which I hope you will enjoy. I’ve also included a list of Thermomix Anzac recipes below too.

About the Anzac Biscuit

From Australian War Memorial website: The army biscuit, also known as an Anzac wafer or Anzac tile, is essentially a long shelf-life, hard tack biscuit, eaten as a substitute for bread. Unlike bread, though, the biscuits are very, very hard. Some soldiers preferred to grind them up and eat as porridge.  Father John Fahey, a Catholic padre serving on Gallipoli, was unimpressed with army biscuits. He wrote, “the man who invented the army biscuit was an unmitigated rascal. As an eatable there is little to choose between it and a seasoned jarrah board.”

The popular Anzac biscuit is a traditional, eggless sweet biscuit. Ingredients include rolled oats, sugar, plain flour, coconut, butter, golden syrup or treacle, bi-carbonate of soda and boiling water.

Anzac Biscuits– Anzac biscuits were originally baked to send to our soldiers in World War One. They had to pack well and keep during the long voyage to the front line so were made without eggs and butter. They were packed in tins or billy tins to keep them airtight. Anzac biscuits are still a popular biscuit, made with rolled oats and golden syrup. We enjoy them throughout the year. Our version does include some butter.

Classic Anzac Biscuits– Another traditional classic Anzac Biscuit.

Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits – The perfect cookie for gluten free diets that will satisfy that sweet cookie craving – it’s hard to stop at one! The almonds are packed with protein and add a touch of sweetness. I’ve added macadamia nut oil which gives a delicious buttery flavour to the whole biscuit and marries perfectly with honey and coconut.

Really Healthy Anzac Biccies – A super-healthy version of everyone’s favourite Australian biscuit.

Vegan Anzac Biscuits – The coconut oil makes the biscuits crispy on the outside but they’re still soft in the middle. While desiccated coconut is more traditional, I prefer the texture that the shredded coconut lends to the biscuit.
