Low Salicylate Anzac Bikkies

by | Apr 20, 2022

Quintessentially Australian, Anzac biscuits are an oaty, syrupy pleasure, adored by everyone from the top end right down to the south. A contentious issue among some however is…do you bake them chewy or with crunch? Personally, I’m a chewy girl myself, but I don’t hold anything against those who like theirs well done – you do you! Ready in just 20 minutes, these little beauties are perfect enjoyed fresh from the oven alongside a nice warm cuppa.

Enjoy xx
