  • Cooking time 16 mins
  • Serves

    1 cup Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
    1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 ¾ cups rolled oats
    ½ cup Chelsea White Sugar or Chelsea Raw Sugar
    ¼ cup (firmly packed) Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    1 cup desiccated coconut
    125g Tararua Butter, cubed
    ¼ cup Chelsea Golden Syrup Tin
    2 Tablespoons water
    1 teaspoon Edmonds Baking Soda


    1. Pre-heat oven to 150°C conventional bake. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

    2. In a medium sized bowl, sift together the Edmonds Standard Grade Flour and cinnamon. Add the rolled oats, coconut and sugars; mix well.

    3. Combine the Tararua Butter, Chelsea Golden Syrup and water in a small saucepan and stir over low-medium heat until the Tararua Butter melts and the mixture is well combined (ensure the mixture does not simmer or boil). Remove from heat and stir in the Edmonds Baking Soda. Add immediately to the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to stir until well combined.

    4. Roll 1-2 tablespoons of mixture into balls and place onto tray about 5cm apart. Use your fingers to flatten each slightly (until they are about 1cm thick) and bake for 16 minutes (for a chewy biscuit) or 20 minutes for a crunchier biscuit.

    5. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Keep in an airtight container for up to a week.


    Chelsea Golden Syrup in the iconic red and gold tin is the best for baking. It has a thicker consistency and richer caramel flavour than Chelsea Easy Pour Golden Syrup (which is more suited to drizzling and marinades).

an amazing recipe

Nice yum yum

Great delicious recipe, but definitely CUT THE SUGAR IN HALF, very important, otherwise they will be way too sweet.

Delicious, I always use this recipe

Love this recipe! It’s delicious

i made these and they turned out really good :)

It was delicious and perfectly golden just how I like it

All time favourite, especially when they’re crunchy

Far too much sugar in this recipe, could easily be cut by half.

I love this recipe! This is the second time I’ve used it and it’s amazing

Easy to follow recipe, only needed 15 mins for perfect chewy biscuits, very yummy

I made these they were good but after a couple of days they went hard

I halved the sugar and they were more to my taste.

Good recipe

Not even done, yet already tastes amazing



I love making these. They taste so good.

Amazing, great and nice.

It was yum as and when I baked it for my family they all loved it. I used the easy pour golden syrup instead tho but it was still yum as and I loved it.

Absolutely great recipe. Beats Edmonds recipe hands down.


They were delicious but I altered the golden syrup from 1/4 cup to 1/8 cup and it was just right.
Great recipe and very tasty - thank you!

Excellent way to spend ANZAC day, sharing a bit of history and fun in the kitchen. Thank you Chelsea Sugar. My daughters and I love your recipes....

These biscuit were absolutely delicious! I will definitely make them again.


I’m a crunchy ANZAC bikkies kinda girl, and yikes! 19 (or 20) mins, like the recipe says, is too long - first tray was slightly burnt on top. :( Tried a lower heat for 2 minutes less and that worked a little better.

Cinnamon doesn't fit the taste.

Baked for 16 minutes and they were perfect. Had to made a second batch, gone so quickly

I love them. They are so tasty.

It's so helpful, and the biscuits come out delicious.

Very good. I chose to make chewy biscuits they were very yummy!

They are very good to make, taste good and don't take too long to make so make this right when you want to have a very tasty biscuit.

Delicious biscuits, really easy recipe. Used raw sugar and also used ginger powder instead of cinnamon and they were even more delicious. 16 minutes in the oven and they're perfectly chewy.

I really love this recipe but a little too much golden syrup.

Great recipie

Very pleased as these are my first ever successful Anzac biscuits (& I usually a good cook). A big hit with everyone. Quite a lot of sugar, along with the syrup, but ok for occassional treat.

I made these today - Anzac day, left the in the oven for 16 mins and perfect!
Easy and delicious - will make again

great, love the recipe, thanks a lot.

nb. i think you may have meant to write 'roll 1-2 teaspoons of mixture...' not tablespoons?

cheers, Sharon

First time making these biscuits and this recipe was the perfect choice! I opted for raw sugar rather than white and with the hint of cinnamon they were very tasty and had a lovely texture and a bit of crunch. I also added some cranberries to the last few biscuits to see how that went and it added a little extra but wasn't necessary at all. I've got a new go-to biscuit recipe now - they were a hit with everyone!

Lovely, tasty and crunchy ANZAC biscuits. Easy to make.

Super super super !!!

Really good basic recipe - fairly sweet but great texture. Added ground ginger in place of the cinnamon and about 1/2 a cup of finely diced crystallised ginger and it was superb. I used a cookie scoop (one and half Tbsp sized) and flattened the half rounds slightly and they came out lovely and even - got 28 biscuits (though there were definitely not 28 left by the time they cooled down!) and baked them for 15 minutes to get a lovely crisp edge and chewy centre. Will make again for sure.

very good BUT they were far to chewy.

I've never successfully made Anzac biscuits before but my family and neighbours raved about these. Best Anzac biscuits they've ever had apparently!

Far too sweet. The recipe says to roll 2 tablespoons mixture together. Too much, too big a biscuit. I only managed to make 14 even with reducing the size to 1TBsp. Had to cook them longer.
On re-watching the video it is obvious teaspoons are being used to measure mixture.
Think I'll stick to other recipes next time.

Excellent recipe which is easy to follow.
