Failsafe Recipes: Sweet things, biscuits, desserts

Big Anzacs

This version is with failsafe oil, not butter and so has much lower saturated fat. Total fat content 12.9% instead of 16.6%.


1 cup plain flour
2 cups rolled oats
¾ cup sugar
½ to 1 tsp salt, to taste
80 g failsafe oil (eg canola)
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 tsp sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
3 tbsp boiling water

Mix together flour, oats, sugar and salt. Heat oil and golden syrup together in a saucepan. Mix bicarbonate with boiling water and add to oil mixture which foams up (make sure it is a large enough container). Pour into blended dry ingredients and stir to combine. Place large spoonfuls of mixture onto greased oven tray, pressed together between bare hands if you like, leaving room to spread. Bake at 160°C for 15 mins fan-forced, don't burn! Allow to cool somewhat before lifting gently onto a cooling rack.
