SJ's ANZAC Slice

A twist on the traditional biscuits, why not test out this ANZAC slice?

Sjs delicious ANZAC slice is full of oats

Quicker and easier than a biscuit, this ANZAC slice is not entirely unhealthy thanks to the oats, and makes a great morning or afternoon snack.

Makes 12 slices


  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp boiling water


Preheat the oven to 180°C before greasing a 10cm x 15cm pan and lining with baking paper. Allow a slight overhang at the edges to easily remove the slice later.

Combine the flour, oats, sugar and coconut into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Set aside.

Heat the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally for eight to 10 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.

Combine the bicarb of soda and boiling water in a jug. Stir into the syrup mixture. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.

Transfer mixture into prepared pan. Use the back of a spoon to press mixture evenly into the pan so it is flat. Put pan in oven and cook for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan before cutting into squares. Serve and enjoy.

    It would be really helpful if you put the full details of the kilojules, calories and other information relating to protein, carb and sugar into the recipe page. ????

    That is not a simple task to do correctly and can result in very misleading information
    You know how much fat and sugar is in the ingredients - work it out

    Just use your common sense, golden syrup is the same as sugar, so you can work out that one piece would be more than enough.

    A 10cm x 15cm pan! Surely that isn't right!
