This is a simple recipe, easily prepared in a boat's galley, for tasty oatmeal biscuits. These biscuits were made and sent by wives and girlfriends to ANZAC soldiers serving at Gallipoli during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC, for those not already aware of it, stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corp. The method is based on a traditional Scottish recipe.


1 cup rolled oats.

1 cup plain flour.

1 cup coconut.

1/2 cup brown sugar.

125g butter.

1 tbls golden syrup.

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda dissolved in 1 tbl sp boiling water


Mix together the oats, flour, coconut and sugar.

Melt together butter and golden syrup and stir into dry ingredients.

Add the bicarbonate mixture and thoroughly.

Roll into small balls and flatten onto greased baking trays.

Bake in a slow oven for 20 mins untill the biscuits develop a light golden colour.

As they cool, the biscuits will harden. Do not over bake them or they will become very hard and difficult to chew. If they get into this state, dop them in your tea or coffee before eating.

Enjoy // Stephen

Nom. These are my favourites. You buy them from supermarkets and places like that here but the fresh ones from the bakery are the best, or still warm from the oven.
