Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits with Manuka Honey

Here’s a healthy take on these iconic Aussie Biscuits – so dear to our hearts on our special Anzac Day of Remembrance.

With more and more people being sensitive to gluten and grains in general, here is a gluten free version of our beloved Anzac Biscuits. (We’ve included quantities for Oats too!)

Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits 

Prep time:  15 mins

Cook time:  30 mins

Total time:  45 mins

Serves: 24


  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup organic quinoa flakes (or rolled oats - if you prefer but oats do have gluten)
  • 1 cup organic coconut desiccated
  • ¼ cup xylitol (or coconut sugar - if you prefer) optional
  • ¼ cup coconut or macadamia nut oil
  • 2 tablespoons Natural Life Manuka Honey 
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. In a mixing bowl stir together ground almonds, coconut, quinoa and xylitol.
  2. In a small pan slowly heat the oil (if using coconut oil - it may be solid at room temperature but will quickly melt when heated) and honey.
  3. Mix the bicarb and water then add to the honey oil mixture and remove from the heat. The mixture will froth up in the pot so be careful.
  4. Pour onto the dry ingredients and mix well. If the dough is too stiff add a little more water but don’t make the dough too soft. Form into 24 small balls – flatten slightly and place onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes at 130-150C or until golden brown.
