I like to think of these as a fancy Anzac biscuit. With chocolate chips. Crisp and crunchy with a chocolate hit they are a perennial fixture in our biscuit barrel. A much healthier version of the much-loved chocolate chip cookie. Loaded with enough oats and coconut to satisfy even the hungriest tummy between meals.
This recipe couldn’t be easier. All that is required is a bowl, a jug and a wooden spoon. Melt and mix. Bake. A whole batch of delicious biscuits in just half an hour. No wonder I keep coming back to it time after time.
