As it’s ANZAC Day today, why not whip up a batch of delicious, crunchy and traditional biscuits with a healthy twist?
While we’re talking about ANZAC biscuits, did you know, back in the days these crunchy treats were called ‘soldier’s biscuits’ as they were eaten by our troops on the shores of Gallipoli and the fields of Flanders.
ANZAC biscuits aren’t just a tradition but they also signify women’s input to the war effort during the World War I.
Note:These would also make the perfect school lunchbox treat, as the recipe contains no nuts.
Now, let’s get baking!
