Coconut Flour Anzacs

Adapted from Martha Stewart

YIELD: 2.5 dozen cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1 c all purpose flour
2 c coconut flour
1 c oats
3/4 c desiccated coconut
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsps golden syrup or palm syrup
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 c 6 tbsp boiling water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients except baking soda.
  3. In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and syrup. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water, and add to syrup mixture. It’s supposed to bubble up, but it didn’t for me.
  4. Add butter mixture to flour mixture.
  5. Make 1.5 in balls, place on cookie sheet 2 in apart, smoosh down evenly into pancake like discs.
  6. Bake 18 min.

These cookies should last a pretty long time without spoiling; they used to be given to soldiers in Australia and New Zealand. Martha Stewart says they last like a week. If they get hard, just dip them in tea and enjoy.
