Healthy Anzac Biscuits

HEALTHY ANZAC BISCUITS

While Anzac biscuits are traditionally made with lots of white flour and sugar, this healthy recipe from my award-winning cookbook, Healthy Baking, is based on a combination of rolled oats and heart-healthy olive oil. Serve alongside shaken iced Healthy Chef Turmeric Latte for added antioxidants and an uplifting healthy boost.

WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT THEM

Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that will fill you up, so you feel fuller for longer. According to studies, the beta-glucan fibre found in oats can help regulate your appetite for up to 4 hours as well as help lower cholesterol. I adore the versatility of olive oil. It is a lovely heat-stable and all-purpose oil that’s great for baking. Almonds are packed with protein and add an irresistible flavour. Almonds also add a generous dose of the antioxidant vitamin E.

+ notes & inspiration +

I use a food processor to combine mine, but you can also just throw the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well with your hands until a biscuit dough is formed and it starts to stick together when pressed. The more you work the oats, the more they’ll stick together.

Store in an airtight container for 5 days.
Serve alongside shaken iced Healthy Chef Turmeric Latte for added antioxidants and an uplifting healthy boost.
