With Anzac Day three days away on 25th April, it’s time for Anzac biscuits.

Traditionally high in saturated fats and sugar, Anzac biscuits are better left in the cookie jar, rather than consumed! But this recipe from SlenderSlim is a low calorie, gluten free alternative that tastes delicious – and is also healthy. They’re the perfect snack for a ‘between’ treat or to satisfy a craving for something a bit sweet, at only 95 calories per serve. Try them!

Serves 12


¼ cup honey            

1 tablespoon shredded coconut

1 egg

½ cup gluten free plain flour

100 grams almond meal

100 grams Slendier Slim rice (available from most supermarkets)

1 cup sultanas        

½ teaspoon coconut essence

¼ cup sunflower, pumpkin seed mix

1 teaspoon baking powder


1.         Preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan forced)

2.         Line a baking tray with grease proof paper, ready for baking.

3.         Prepare SlendierSlim rice as per instructions on pack and set aside

4.         In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and stir to combine

5.         In a large mixing bowl add egg, essence, honey and rice; gently whisk till smooth

6.         Sieve the GF flour and baking powder together

7.         Add whisked egg mixture to dry ingredients and combine

8.         Place one generous tablespoon of mixture on baking tray and press down to form thick cookie shape; allow room between each cookie

9.         Refrigerate for 10 minutes before cooking, to stop the mixture from spreading

10.      Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown

11.      Allow to cool for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack so they cool completely.
