HEALTHY(ISH) ANZAC COOKIES

By: Teisha Lowry Cox

Nothing beats a good dozen of Anzac Cookies on Anzac Day - it's the most Aussie thing you can do, and they smell delish. I've made my own healthy(ish) version, I could probably do better - such as: using coconut oil instead of butter, and Rice Malt or Raw Honey instead of Golden Syrup. But I thought, what the heck, I'm using oats (which is totally and utterly against my Metabolic Type) so why not?

Healthy Anzac cookies recipe

YOU WILL NEED:

1 Cup Oats (organic and gluten free, if you can't find proper oats you can substitute for organic quick oats)

1 Cup Gluten Free Flour (sub for coconut flour but you'll have to play with the formula to get the right texture)

3/4 Cup Butter (free range and organic, sub for coconut oil)

1/2 Cup Desiccated Coconut (organic)

1/3 Cup Coconut Blossom Sugar (sub for brown or raw sugar)

4 Tbsp. Golden Syrup (organic, sub for raw honey or your choice of sweetener)

1/2 Tsp. bicarb Soda

METHOD:

Preheat Oven and get baking tray ready with paper.

Mix all dry ingredients together (except bicarb)

Melt butter and syrup - until just melted, then add bicarb soda in, stir.

Add all mixtures together and make balls should make 12-15.

Place on paper, flatten and pop in the oven.

Bake for 17-20mins depending on your oven and my Mum said if you want them chewy you can bake longer on lower heat.

Please note, these are amazingly delish! However, they are a healthier version so the taste may vary to real Anzac cookies.

Happy Anzac Day and bless those who fought for our freedom.

May have test tasted one this morning with my Turmeric Latte
