Choc Chip Anzac Biscuits


Pre-heat oven to 160c
Makes 33


2 cups plain flour
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
250g unsalted butter chopped
4 Tbs golden syrup
1 teaspoon bi carb soda
250g dark choc chips
5 tablespoons water


dry ingredients
Place all dry ingredients into large bowl and give a stir to break up any lumps of brown sugar and combine all together ( makes it easier when wet ingredients are added). In a saucepan melt butter and golden syrup, when melted and take off heat and quickly stir in bi carb with wooden spoon,  this will froth up quickly and triple in size add this directly to your bowl of dry ingredients and mix all together with wooden spoon.  I use my hand to combine and feel the texture of the ingredients as you do this add the choc chips if you do this before the chips have the tendency to melt, combine the mixture as you do this sprinkle the 5 tablespoons of water one at a time, the mixture should not be dry but not wet and when you can roll a ball and it holds its shape then its right.

Roll in to ball this size
All ingredients combined

Press tops down as shown

Roll into balls you can make any size you like mine are the size of large walnut place on lined baking tray and place in oven.  Bake for approx. 5-6 minutes or until they start to brown slightly and rise, take out of oven and press the top down with spatula, not to flatten just push to top down slightly, put back in oven for a further 6-7 mins keep an eye on the as the cooking time might depend on your oven mine is fan forced so cooks hotter.  When they are golden brown  take them out and give them another press as they would have risen slightly again, you don't have to do this you can leave them puffy it all about how you like them (my family like them soft and chewy) leave them to cool on the tray for about 10 mins. (and if your like me you cant resist to do a taste test before anyone else does).

Hope you enjoy this recipe I have been making these biscuits for years and they never disappoint,  there great to take anywhere and make regular appearances at most community functions. Blessings Maz xx
