Quinoa (Anzac) Cookies

Can they get any more delicious - absolutely!
Quinoa (Anzac) Cookies


My inspiration comes from my cousins (Judy Miragliotta) recipe of yummy traditional Anzac Biscuits however for my delicious morsels I have changed it to suit me and made them with Quinoa flakes instead of the traditional oats used in Anzacs and another bonus twist I have added 50/50 coconut flour and plain flour ... you can use just plain flour if you choose but I just love the extra coconut flavour boost.



  • Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large bowl ... 1/2 cup plain flour, 1/2 cup coconut flour, 1 cup of quinoa flakes, 1/2 cup raw caster sugar, 3/4 coconut (desiccated or the moist shredded one).
  • In a small saucepan melt together 150 grams of butter and two extra large tablespoons of golden syrup ... gentle simmering roll for a minute or two to achieve a nice caramelised golden colour.
  • To this mixture add a 1/2 teaspoon of bi-carb soda that has been dissolved in two dessert spoons of water ... while the mixture is still frothing add it to the dry ingredients and combine.
  • Form into biscuit size balls and flatten them to bake on baking paper in a gentle oven until golden brown ... these biscuits are very soft when first out of the oven so let them cool on the tray so as not to break them.



Mixing up a recipe to suit yourself and your family or adapting the ingredients to hand is what in my opinion cooking is all about. Loads of fun trying new ideas. Some will be successful like this one and some not so. 
Give your ideas a go you may be pleasantly surprised.
