Healthy Anzac Biscuits

Tomorrow is Anzac Day and a time to reflect. It is also a day to eat one of my favourite childhood treats, Anzac Biscuits. This history behind the biscuit is that during WWI there was an egg shortage, so the Australian women created this egg-less biscuit that they could send to their loved ones overseas.

Ive been baking regular Anzac biscuits since I was young. This evening I thought I would try to make a healthier version of my favourite cookie that does not have all the white flour, golden syrup, sugar and butter that regular Anzac biscuits have.

While I think taste wise real Anzac biscuits will always win, from a healthy treat perspective these turned out great! Each biscuit contains 120 calories, 12g carbs (with only 1g being sugar!!), 8g fat and 4 g protein. A regular Anzac biscuit has at least 7g of sugar and no protein making these are far better alternative.
