ANZAC day is coming up and I have lots of clients who love making or eating ANZAC cookies around this time of year.
Below are a couple of oat-based cookie recipes that are slightly different to the traditional ANZAC cookies, but they are just as yum and boast a range of healthy benefits, such as:
- being high in fibre
- lots of good fats
- absolute no table sugar in them at all!
- low GI for long lasting energy
Give them a go and let me know what you think – always a winner with kids and adults a like!
Happy baking 🙂
