I’m pretty much letting the pictures speak for themselves :D. If you have ever eaten Anzac biscuits, these are pretty much the same except for the fact that these do not have coconut and they carry a flavour enhancer a.k.a crushed walnuts! hahahaha…..
The mixture/dough can get really sticky, a technique I use is wetting my hands and then forming the balls, every time it starts sticking, dip your hand into water and get working. Each ball is roughly about 1 tblsp each ↓Once the balls are formed gently but firmly press down to form circular cookies. Once they are in the oven keep a sharp eye on them cause they bake fast! Your end result will be a delicious ↓↓
Oh another important thing I forgot to mention, once they are removed from the oven they will be soft when you touch them, so don’t touch them yet, leave the cookies on the baking dish/tray as the heat from the bottom will continue to bake and harden the cookies. Give it about 4 minutes, then slowly remove them…
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup crushed walnuts
- 2 cups oats
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp dairy-free margarine (normal can be used as well)
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 tbsp boiled water
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Mix the flour, sugar, walnuts and oats together. Melt the margarine with the golden syrup in the microwave. In a separate bowl mix the boiling water and baking soda, it will start to fizz, add it straight to the melted margarine and give it a good mix. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, add the margarine into the well and mix. A sticky dough will form.
- On a greased baking paper or foil form balls (about 1 tablespoon each) then gently press down. Keep the cookies a few cm apart. Bake for 5-8 min, or until browned. When removed from the oven it will still be soft to touch leave it on the baking tray for at least another 4 min, it will continue to cook and harden from the heat of the tray.
- Remove from the tray, allow to cool completely before storing into an air-tight container.
