Anzac Biscuits, Exotic With Wattleseed.

Anzac and wattleseed biscuits, recipe from Moira Drexler.

We Aussies love Anzac biscuits.  ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps., and they were they  sent to soldiers fighting in World War 1 by their wives.  They had to survive a long journey and these biscuits kept well.    They are made from oats and mixed with yummy ingredients but this is my version of it.  I add Australian Wattleseed spice.  It adds a totally new flavour to the much adored recipe.

Do you want to try something new?  Then give it a bash…….


1 cup of oats, 1 cup of plain flour, 1 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of coconut, 125 grams of butter, 2 tablespoons of golden syrup, 1 teaspoon of wattleseed spice (available from Australiss in Erlangen.) , 1/2 teaspoon of bi carbonate soda (natron for those of you living in Germany) and lastly 1 tablespoon of boiling water.

Mix the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl.

Mix the dry ingredients together.

Mix butter and golden syrup together and stir over gentle heat until it is all melted.  Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the boiling water and then add that to the melted butter mixture.  Stir this into the dry mixture, add the teaspoon of wattleseed.

Wattleseed spice is an Australian native flavour. Available from Australiss and we can post anywhere.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and then drop a spoonful of biscuit mix onto the tray.  Bake at 150 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.  Cool on trays and loosen the biscuits when they are still warm if they have stuck together.



  1. I LOVE anzac biscuits. Can you but golden syrup in Europe? I don’t think I have seen it in Italy.

  2. You can buy golden syrup occasionally here but there are other syrups that can be used instead of golden syrup. A note with the watteseed, you can use up to a tablespoon but I suggested 1 teaspoon so people can get used to this new flavour.
