Vegan Paleo Anzac Biscuits / Coconut Macaroons

Paleo Anzac Biscuits - or are they coconut macaroons?
Paleo Anzac Biscuits – or are they coconut macaroons?

So it was Anzac Day yesterday, and I am not going to lie to you. I was meaning to make paleo Anzac biscuits, and I got them almost right, only that they are a bit of a hybrid between Anzacs and coconut macaroons, but who would argue with that? Fact is, regardless of what you want to call them, these babies are so utterly delicious and addictive that they shouldn’t even be healthy! But, alas, they are. Lots of nutty goodness, fibre and protein, low in carbs, family-approved, paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and if you swap in maple syrup for honey, you can even make your vegan friends happy. This one is definitely a winner! Have I mentioned that they are a cinch to make? That they make your house smell yummy? That they are divine?

Makes 25 biscuits

100 g almond meal
100 g dessiccated coconut
80 g shredded coconut
30 g coconut flour
50 g coconut oil, melted
80 g rice malt syrup or maple syrup
2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 130 °C. Mix the dry ingredients until well combined. Melt the coconut oil and the honey and add to the dry mix. Knead with your hands while adding 2 tbsp or so of water to hold everything together. Scoop out a small portion, shaping patties, and align on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 45 mins until golden brown. Thoroughly…

Enjoy!
