Aussies love an Anzac cookie!!! They are delicious, but unfortunately contain loads of sugar and fat. Try these lovely Healthy Anzac Cookies with Brazil Nuts’ I made with my kids today, ready for Anzac day tomorrow. They’re rich in beta-glucan, a type of fibre found in oats that helps lower cholesterol levels, and selenium, a potent antioxidant found in high levels in Brazil nuts. Coconut oil is a great oil to bake with that won’t turn into a harmful trans-fat.
1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup of whole Brazil nuts
1/2 cup shredded dried coconut
2 Tablespoons organic raw honey
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 1/2 Tablespoons of cold pressed coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of water
Preheat your oven to 150*C.
Put oats, coconut and Brazil nuts in your food processor and mix until combined.
Then add the honey, oil, vanilla essence and cinnamon and mix until well combined. Then add the water and mix again.
Place cookie mixture on a oven tray with grease proof paper. Try using a tablespoon of mixture for each cookie. Flatten down your cookies and then pop them in the oven for around 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool and then tuck in ?
Makes around a dozen cookies.
