And they said it couldn’t be done…
Here in Australia, ANZAC Day is a day of remembrance. It is a day when we take the time to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) soldiers who have fought and died for their country, and is marked annually on the anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign of the First World War, the 25th of April.
An ANZAC Day tradition is to bake and share ANZAC biscuits. These biscuits were originally created by wives on the home-front who needed to send something sturdy and long-lasting to the soldiers fighting overseas. ANZAC Biscuits are traditionally made using rolled oats, flour, sugar and golden syrup so many discussions were had in keto groups about the possibility of ever making them keto.
I kid you not, these are as good, if not better than the originals and yet they clock in at a tiny 1.8 grams of carbs per biscuit.
They have that same sweet, deep flavour and are crispy on the edges and chewy in the centre, like the perfect ANZAC should be. I’m so proud of myself.
