Anzac Biscuits

I know its a bit late.. but i wanted to share my yummy Anzac Biscuit recipe with you..

I usually plan make therm on Anzac Day each year {obviously} but this year it happened much rather as an accident. It snuck up on me, with all the Easter fuss i didn't realize it was here already! dare i say where is the year going? Anyhow, the kids and i were to have a play date with a friend so i was going to make my usual favorite raspberry butter cake to take along. That was until i went to get the eggs from the fridge.. of course hubby had finished off the last couple for his breakie!
Scrap that idea - hello Anzac biscuits, i hadn't forgotten about you after all, very fitting as they were the biscuit of choice when there were egg shortages during World War 1!

125g butter
1 tbs golden syrup
2 tbs boiling water
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup desiccated coconut 
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar

Melt butter and syrup over low heat. Add boiling water mixed with soda. Pour into mixed dry ingredients and mix well. Shape mixture into rounds on to lined baking trays {make sure you leave room for spreading}. Bake in a preheated slow oven {150 degrees Celsius} for 15 minutes. Cool and store in airtight containers - that is if you don't eat them all straight away!

The perfect treat when you've eaten too much chocolate! Enjoy.
