Anzac Cookies

With Anzac Day coming up, we have decided to share the recipe for our delicious Anzac Cookies for you all to enjoy. They contain oats, so are not gluten free however it is possible to source gluten free oats if you prefer. They are also made with rolled amaranth (or amaranth flour) – a gluten free seed with a unique nutty flavour and soft texture.

Another healthy version of a traditional treat that tastes just like the real deal.

We hope you enjoy and please tag us with @healthsynergy and #healthsynergy on Instagram if you remake any of our recipes.
