Gluten-free ANZAC Biscuits

Sharing is caring!

Over the last week the Skinnymixer’s Community has been searching for a Gluten-free variation of an ANZAC Biscuit.

Hi Skinnies Grant here,

I got asked today to produce a variation on an age old recipe for the ANZAC Biscuit – one suitable for those that are gluten-free / coeliac or dairy-free.

This recipe is a simple one and hopefully one that captures the elements of the very rustic basic ingredient staple that represents such an important commemoration.

As an ex soldier, one of many in my family, I look back at the ANZAC’s as people who made the ultimate sacrifice so we get to live our lives in arguably the best country in the world (NZ included).

Tomorrow I will rise up for a traditional rum and coffee breakfast before stand too and while munching on this little biscuit I will quietly say thanks, lest we forget.
