Recipe: Anzac Biscuits With Raisins

26th May 2016

I love baking when it’s quick and easy, and Anzac biscuits tick both of these criteria!

They taste so good, and thankfully aren’t too high in fat compared to most home-baked biscuits. 

I took inspiration from Jamie Oliver’s anzac biscuits recipe and tweaked it by taking out a couple of things and adding raisins. 

When you make the dough you can even bag some of it up and put it in the freezer to save preparing it the next time you want some!

Claire’s Anzac Biscuits with Raisins Recipe




100 g unsalted butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

120 g plain flour

1 mug of porridge oats

1 mug of light brown sugar

1 mug of desiccated coconut

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Half a cup of raisins or sultanas

anzac biscuits recipe


Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas

Line 2 large baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Melt the butter and sugar in a small pan over a low heat, then stir in the golden syrup. In a small bowl, combine the bicarbonate of soda with 3 tablespoons of water, then stir it into the butter mixture.

Combine the flour, oats and coconut in a medium bowl. Make a well in the middle, then add the butter mixture, vanilla extract. Give the wet ingredients a good mix, then gradually stir in the dry ingredients to combine.

Spoon up a handful and then roll it into a ball and do this for each biscuit. 

Place them onto the baking tray 3cm between each other. Get a fork and gently press on each biscuit to flatten it slightly. 

Place in the hot oven for around 10 minutes, or until golden, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
