Anzac Day

Anzac biscuits were initially known as Soldiers’ Biscuits. After the landing on Gallipoli by Australian and New Zealand troops (the Anzac’s) in World War 1, they were renamed ANZAC Biscuits. Many believed that these biscuits were sent to soldiers on the line, but that isn’t true. In fact, they often featured at fetes and fund raisers, where they were sold to raise money for the war.

Traditionally the ingredients used in these biscuits were oats, sugar, flour, coconut, butter, golden syrup, bi-carb and boiling water. Because of their historical military connection with the ANZAC’s, these biscuits are still often used for fund raising for the returned services league.

The Low Carb Version

Oats, sugar and golden syrup have been replaced in this sugar free version of Low Carb Anzac Biscuits. Basically, the sugar and processed carbs have been replaced with almonds and a low carb sweetener. There is no compromise on taste though with this recipe. Whilst not exactly the same as the original, these still taste superb and still manage to have a  wonderful buttery, slightly caramelized flavor. Low Carb Anzac Biscuits have very little impact on your blood sugar levels, making them ideal for anyone watching their carbs and also for diabetics.

    1. Hi Trudy
      You certainly can. Yours is probably a monk fruit erythritol blend so I would add about 2 tablespoons as it is a lot more concentrated than pure erythritol.
      Taste the dough once you have mixed it to test for sweetness levels as you can adjust it if you wish to.

    1. Hi Karen. Recipes like this need the bulk from a powdered sweetener. Drops are concentrated as well so it isn’t going to suit this recipe. You could use a monk fruit blend powdered sweetener though as it is a bulky sweetener( they add erythritol to bulk up the monkfruit). If you want to bake cakes, cookies etc I highly recommend you get some powdered sweetener for better results. Kx
