Anzac biscuits are a traditional Australian recipe but are typically made with butter and refined sugar. Here is our healthy version of Anzac biscuits that are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.
These gluten free Anzac biscuits are also raw, vegan and egg free and are a quick and easy treat to make.
This recipe has a variety of ingredients to provide a balanced treat with nutritional benefit, such as adding tahini which provides an amazing source of calcium.
- Quinoa is rich in fibre and protein.
- The combination of quinoa flakes, almond meal and coconut flour make these no bake, raw cookies high in fibre and keep you feeling full. They are also extremely satiating so you will find you don’t need to eat many to feel satisfied.
- We use 100% maple syrup in this recipe to slightly sweeten however we only use just a minimal amount in the entire recipe. To make these even healthier you may like to reduce the quantity by half or if you prefer only semi-sweet or less sweet treats, simply omit and add a touch of extra almond butter or tahini 🙂
- Tahini is rich in calcium providing a non-dairy source for optimal levels.
This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and soy free.
