Quinoa Anzacs



Anzac Quinoa (1)


Thank you Jasmine from The Gluten Free Scallywag for this recipe.

By far, this is the best Anzac Biscuit recipe I have baked.

On a personal note, tomorrow my husband and I will be attending the ANZAC Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux in northern France.  A time of quiet reflection.


100 g quinoa flakes

120g plain gluten free flour

100 g castor sugar

65 g desiccated coconut

2 tablespoons golden syrup

125 g butter

½ teaspoon bi-carb soda

1 tablespoon boiling water


Preheat oven to 160C fan forced.

Line 3 trays with baking paper.

In a large bowl, combine the quinoa flakes, flour, coconut and sugar and set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt the golden syrup and butter.  In a small bowl or cup mix the bi-carb and water and then pour into melted butter.  Remove saucepan from stove and pour over the dry ingredients.  Stir to combine.

Press and roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on baking trays a few centimetres apart to allow for spreading.  Press down lightly with the palm of your hand to flatten.

Bake for 12 minutes (chewy) to 15 minutes (crunchy).

Leave to cool on trays before removing to cooling rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for 3 – 5 days.
