Gluten Free ANZAC Biscuits Recipe

Makes approximately 20 small cookies


Directions to make Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits


2 cups desiccated coconut
1 1/3 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp water

Cooking directions

1. Turn on oven to 180 deg to pre-heat, and line a tray with baking paper.
2. Combine the dry ingredients – the coconut and quinoa flakes in a mixing bowl.
3. Pour the coconut oil, maple syrup & water into a saucepan and on a low heat mix together (until coconut oil is melted in the cooler months, or until combined). Once combined, turn up the heat to medium-high and tip in the 1 teaspoon of baking powder, stirring until it makes a lovely bubbly, frothy mixture.
4. Remove saucepan from the stove and pour the warm ingredients into the mixing bowl. Mix all ingredients together with a wooden spoon until combined well.  Leave to cool slightly.
5. Roll mixture into small balls and place on lined baking tray. Recipe makes approx 20 biscuits. Press down gently with a fork and bake for approx 12-15 mins.
6. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.



When rolling balls into biscuits, the mixture may be a little crumbly. If you can’t get your mixture to stick together, then you may need to add a little extra water to the mix.
