Basic Vegan Anzac Biscuits

1 cup plain flour, sifted
125 g vegan margarine (we like Nuttelex)
2 Tbsp golden syrup
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
3 Tbsp boiling water

  • Preheat the oven to 180° (160° for fan-assisted ovens).
  • Place the oats, coconut, sugar and flour in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Melt the vegan margarine and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the bicarb soda and boiling water, then add to the margarine-syrup mixture.
  • The liquid will froth and increase in volume. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into 12 balls and place on a lined or non-stick baking tray.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy!

Why make Anzac biscuits vegan? Traditionally, the recipe calls for butter. Unfortunately, the dairy industry spells misery for cows.
