Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits

By: Almond Board of Australia

Anzac Biscuits are a childhood favourite of many Australians, however finding gluten-free versions has always been tricky.

This recipe for gluten-free Anzac Biscuits substitutes the usual flour and oats with super-healthy quinoa flakes and almond meal. These biscuits also happen to be dairy-free, too.

I love these biscuits served with a glass of milk or cup of tea for an quick and easy snack.

Store them in an airtight container and they’ll keep happily for a week. But I wouldn’t count on them lasting that long. Enjoy!

  • 1 + ⅔ cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
