Secrets Out: The Famous Women Want Adventure Anzac Biscuit Recipe

Secrets Out: The Famous Women Want Adventure Anzac Biscuit Recipe

In the spirit of outdoor snacks that have been on every Women Want Adventure Trip this year, we thought we would introduce you to the very same, delicious Anzac biscuits women in our community are all familiar with. 

The wonderful thing about Anzac biscuits is that you can customise the flavours by adding or mixing different sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. When you’re out on adventures, you burn a lot of energy so it’s important to have lightweight, delicious snacks that push you up the mountain.

Women Want Adventure Famous Hiking Anzac Biscuits can be made into any shape you like, so get creative. If you’re trying to keep your pack light, go smaller on the baking tray or try rolling the biscuit into a bliss ball shape. 

The best thing about making Anzac biscuits is that they are easy peasy. There are no fancy ingredients.  No methods that will leave you scratching your head. Got a bowl and a wooden spoon? It’s just melt, mix and bake.
