ANZAC Cookies (Coconut Oats Cookies)

Pin It!

Ever since I came across ANZAC cookies on Three Cookies blog, I just knew I had to try them as they sounded so delicious and he's always raving about them!!! Indeed they were very tasty! Crisp, chewy and very fragrant!! I could just these the whole day long! Sigh.... If only they won't be make me fat!!!!

ANZAC cookies come from Australia and New Zealand and stands for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Visit history of the anzac cookie to read a bit more about how this cookie was invented. 

I also passed some to my New Zealander friend and he gave the thumps up so this is definitely a recipe to keep in my over flowing recipe folder!!

Recipe adapted from Three Cookies .

  1. They look really nice and golden. I am glad you tried them, now I want some! I have never tried with olive oil, only vegetable oil. Was the olive oil flavour present?

  2. I've always wanted to try these cookies. Yours look absolutely delicious! I think I'll save this link and recipe for Anzac Day. I think its in April. I'll check my calendar.

    Thanks for sharing, Sylvia...

  3. Three Cookies: I used light olive oil so I couldn't taste it at all. I've update the recipe to reflect this. We've now finished all the cookies so making another batch is in order! :)

    sugarplum: opps, i forgot that minor detail! haha i made 33 cookies with the recipe and i hope you'll love the recipes too!
    Joanne: Try making it and i think you'll totally fall in love with it!
    Nami: Yes yes! you'll have to try it as soon as possible!
    Richa: you are right! we finished it in 2 days!! so i will have to make another batch or 2 soon! haha

  12. Hi Sylvia, I forgot to say. Since you will be making it again, I suggest making extra dough and freezing it. Freezing does not affect the quality. However the problem is that frozen dough eaten straight out of the freezer is extremely delicious. Sometimes I want to make ANZAC dough just to eat frozen:)

  13. really!? eat it frozen?! that i gotta try!! haha Thanks for the tip Mr Three Cookies! :)

  14. Your cookies is so pretty! makes me want to grab it from my screen! My no flour cookies failed miserably 2 days ago, looks like i have to try again..
