Anzac Biscuits

Just like our Lamington, Anzac biccies are part of the Australian culture.  Here's a spin on the traditional recipe using quinoa flakes instead of oats. Yummy

1cup GF plain flour (sifted)                                                  
1 cup quinoa flakes
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
125g unsalted butter, chopped
2 Tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
2 Tablespoons boiling water

Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celcius

Combine flour, quinoa flakes, sugar & coconut in a large bowl.
Place butter and golden syrup in a saucepan & stir over a gentle heat until butter has melted.
Combine bicarb and water and add to golden syrup mixture. Whisk until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Pour into dry mix and combine well.

Roll tablespoonfuls into balls, place on lined baking tray and flatten (I find easier to do this in the palm of my hand)

Bake for around 15-20 minutes or until golden.  Allow to cool.
