These biscuits are an ANZAC with bonus stuff.

Makes about 24 biscuits or 6 mega biscuits I guess.


125g plain flour*

100g rolled oats

90g raw sugar

50g shredded coconut

35g sunflower seeds**

35g pumpkin seeds**

20g sesame seeds

125g butter

1/4 cup golden syrup

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

1 tablespoon boiling water

*I use spelt flour

**I buy sunflower and pumpkin seeds in a bag together, and just use 70g total


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180oC, line baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, weigh out the flour, oats, sugar, coconut, and seeds. Stir to combine.
  3. In a small saucepan melt the butter and golden syrup together.
  4. In a cup dissolve the bicarbonate soda in the boiling water, then stir into  to the butter mixture. It will foam.
  5. Pour the butter mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  6. Using damp hands, roll tablespoon sized portions into a ball, and place onto the trays. Leave room for the biscuits to spread.
  7. Press the balls with your fingers, into a disk.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Cool on a wire rack. Store cooled biscuits in an airtight container.
