Anzac Biscuits with Honey

Anzac Biscuits with Honey

Recipe by: Kelly Gibney
Serves: 20 cookies
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15-18 minutes


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup thread or desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup brown sugar (tightly packed)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 125g butter
  • ¼ cup Taylor Pass Creamed Clover honey
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons warm water


  1. Preheat oven to 160c

  2. Line two oven-proof trays with baking paper.

  3. Combine the rolled oats, flour, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine well. Break up any lumps of brown sugar.

  4. Place the butter, honey and water in a small saucepan and place over a low heat until the butter is melted. Don’t allow to simmer. Add the baking soda and whisk well. It will foam up a little – this is fine. Add to the dry mix and stir until thoroughly combined.

  5. Roll heaped tablespoons into balls and place on a tray with enough space between each ball for some spreading. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough. Use hand or a fork to lightly flatten.

  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes until desired cooking level has been achieved. Longer will give a crunchier cookie.

  7. Leave on the tray to cool before moving.

  8. Once completely cool, can be stored in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
