  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees bake. Line 2 large baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the spelt flour, coconut, rolled oats, sugar and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. Over low heat, gently melt the butter to a liquid. Add the rice malt syrup, whisk well to combine and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Combine the boiling water with the baking soda in a separate small bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  5. Add the baking soda and the butter syrup to the dry ingredients and fold through to combine.
  6. Use a tablespoon to scoop a heavy tablespoon of the dough into the palm of your hand. Roll into a ball and place onto the baking tray. Repeat this process until all of the dough has been rolled.
  7. You should fit 6 balls per tray leaving 2 centimetres between each.
  8. Gently flatten each ball with a fork.
  9. Place in the oven to bake for 10 minutes.
  10. At 10 minutes if they haven’t flattened out too much in the cooking process, gently push them down a little further with a fork.
  11. Cook for another 5 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
  12. Allow the biscuits to cool on their trays for 5 minutes once they have been removed from the oven. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
    Store in an airtight container in a cupboard for up to one week.

Handy Tips & Notes:

Want to try something new? Instead of rolling the dough into balls, try pressing the dough down into a square slice tray, baking for 15 minutes, removing and letting it cool. Then cutting the ANZAC slice into bars!
