Anzac Cookies

From Jeanette's Healthy Living


From Katrina's Baking and Boys! with a few adaptations. I made these cookies slightly healthier by using white whole wheat flour, organic evaporated cane sugar and unsweetened coconut (these cookies are plenty sweet!).


1 cup old fashioned oats

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1 cup organic evaporated cane sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1/2 cup Earth Balance Buttery Stick

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon boiling water

1-2 tablespoons additional water, to bind cookie dough if it's too crumbly


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut. Set aside. Combine butter and syrup and melt in the microwave. Set aside.


Mix together baking soda and water and add to butter mixture. Mix into oat mixture. Add more water if necessary to bind the cookie dough together. Place tablespoons of batter onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.


Bake about 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
