I’m not much of a baker. But occasionally I dust off the baking trays and wooden spoon if the occasion calls for a yummy sweet treat.

The occasion this time was to test out a tempting paleo-friendly recipe for Paleo Anzac Biscuits, created by one of my favourite online chefs The Healthy Chef (Teresa Cutter).

With Teresa’s blessing, I have posted below her simple and foolproof recipe. I was brave enough to substitute the macadamia oil for coconut oil and it still came up trumps.


Fresh and golden from the oven


They take minutes to prepare and only 30 minutes of baking time. My batch were lovely and golden when I took them out of the oven, but a little on the flat side. But don’t despair! I simply used a tablespoon to shape them back to lovely rounds which also plumped them up too. Do this as soon as they come out of the oven when they are super soft. They will set into shape in about 5 minutes. Also run a spatular under them to keep them from sticking to the tray (I greased my baking tray in organic butter).

Paleo Anzac Biscuits Recipe

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 cup organic desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nut oil (or 1/5 cup coconut oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 tablespoon water

Combine almond meal, flaked almonds and coconut.
Combine honey and oil into a small pot and heat gently.
Mix the bicarb and water then pour into the honey pot and mix until it starts to froth.
Pour into the dry nut ingredients and mix through until combined.  Add a little water if needed to combine which will help them stick together.
Form into 22 cookies
Bake in a low pre heated oven 120 C (248 F)  for about 30 minutes until golden.
Cool and enjoy.

Thank you Teresa for sharing your heavenly recipe!
