This easy recipe for ANZAC biscuits has the tasty addition of chocolate buttons, it is a great recipe to make with kids and a twist on the Kiwi classic.
You can’t beat delicious ANZAC biscuits, crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. There is something so nostalgic about eating ANZAC biscuits and in this recipe I have added chocolate buttons for a twist on the Kiwi classic.
It is such an easy recipe you just add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl, melt the butter and golden syrup and stir it all together. Roll into balls, chill in the fridge and bake in the oven until golden.
Make sure you chill your balls of biscuit mixture in the fridge for at least half an hour before baking, otherwise they will end up flat and spread very far on the tray, so give them lots of space between each biscuit.
If you want to go for the classic version of ANZAC biscuits you can leave out the chocolate buttons and the recipe will still work perfectly. Or to mix it up you could use white or milk chocolate buttons/chips and they would work well too.
These oaty cookies are great recipe to make, my son Archie helped me make them and he loved the end result.

Hi VJ, how do I bake these from frozen balls? Just the same? Thanks
Leave on the bench to thaw for 20 minutes while the oven heats up. Push them down and then bake until golden.
The family love these biscuits. Second time making them I cut the sugar in half as I found with the chocolate chips, it was a very sweet biscuit. I also didn’t chill the dough second time around & I found the cookies baked a bit better with a crunchy outer & soft chewy inside. I also added 1-2 Tbsp of water to really bind the dough together as I also added a protein powder with it. But just wanted to say THANK YOU! I’m really enjoying trying out your recipes!
