Healthy vegan Anzac Cookies

Posted in Food on May 3, 2018

Anzac cookies baking creates one of those smells that instantly takes me back to my childhood and my mama in the kitchen. We are not a big cookie family, much to my kids disappointment BUT Anzac cookies, especially on Anzac Day, are ones that we do bake up on a more regular basis. Now I loved those REALLY sweet, crunchy – or gooey – ones that my mum made, but they were so full of golden syrup, butter and sugar that I wanted to make a healthier version for my kids to still enjoy. This is what we came up with. I think they still hit the spot.


1 cup flour – we used a gluten-free mix but you can easily use a spelt or normal flour

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 cup of oats

1/3 cup coconut sugar

3 tablespoons maple syrup

3 tablespoons water

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.

Mix all the ingredient in a large bowl until well combined.

Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly. Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until browned.
