ANZAC biscuits (our way)

Many Indigenous soldiers fought without being recognised in our War. So we wanted to add a twist to the ANZAC biscuit using Indigenous ingredients and rosemary which is traditionally worn to remember. So what better way to do both than to use Sea Rosemary (Native to Australia). These biscuits also double up as cheese crackers, just roll them really thin and serve with your favourite cheese.

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line baking trays with baking paper.

2. In a large bowl, place the flour, cinnamon myrtle, oats, coconut, sugar, lime zest and rosemary and stir to combine.
