What you'll need:

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup hazelnut or almond meal

1 dessert spoon of vegan protein powder

1/4 cup rice malt syrup (or maple syrup/honey)

2 tablespoon raw cacao powder

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Add another tablespoon of melted coconut oil if mixture is too dry, and if you prefer if sweeter add extra rice malt syrup.

Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Spread out evenly into lined baking pan, refrigerate for 30mins or freeze for 15mins.
  3. Cut into bite size pieces and enjoy!
 

Healthy Anzac Biscuits

Unlike traditional ANZAC biscuits that are packed full of refined sugars and processed white flour, this recipe is a delicious healthy alternative. Since originally creating the recipe I've made this updated version and added walnuts (inspired by my Grandma's ANZAC biscuits). 

This recipe makes a tasty refined sugar-free snack (can be dairy and gluten free too; use coconut oil and gluten free flour instead of spelt) and loved by many. Your little one's won't even notice the difference! 

Ingredients:

1 cup organic wholemeal spelt flour

1 1/4 cup organic oats

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup organic shredded coconut

1/4 tsp bi-carb soda

1/2 cup of melted organic butter or coconut oil 

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey 

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2. Combine and mix all dry ingredients - spelt flour, oats, walnuts coconut & bi-carb

3. Then add wet ingredients - coconut oil/butter, water, honey and vanilla extract.

4. Once ingredients are combined scoop into spoonful-sized mixture and role into a ball and place on tray, this recipe makes 12 biscuits. Flatten with a fork and cook for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!

 

Lest we forget.
