Cacao Anzac Biscuits with Cacao Nibs 

Looking for that chocolatey flavour while maintaining the relative healthiness of the oat biscuit? This gluten free Anzac biscuits recipe will satisfy your chocolate cravings while providing the nutritional benefits. If you want an Anzac biscuit with a little something special incorporated into the mix, this will be the perfect recipe for you. Cacao nibs are part of the cocoa bean, from which chocolate derives, and they offer the same benefits as dark chocolate, with good fats that can increase the dopamine levels in the brain. Basically, the happiness chemical. So yes, these oaty, chocolatey treats will definitely put a smile on your face.


  • 120g butter
  • 50 g coconut oil
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 1 tspn bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g GF Oats 
  • 150g Gluten Free Flour
  • 70 g Rapadura Sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 25 g cacao
  •  25g cacao nibs


In a pot gently melt butter, coconut oil and syrup together.  Add in bicarbonate soda.  Add in oats, flour, sugar, coconut, cacao and cacao nibs. Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly combined.  If you think it is a little dry, add a tbspn of water until you have a consistency that you can easily roll into balls. Place evenly onto a lined baking tray and bake for approximately 10-12 mins in a 160oC oven until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool, then transfer to a wire rack if they last long enough. I made about 24 biscuits from this batch. 

These little babies are a delicious way to enjoy Anzac Day.
