Here is a yummy Anzac Muffin Recipe which gives a fun spin on the traditional Anzac cookie we know and love. Perfect for a lunch time treat or as a snack when they come home from school.
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 100g butter
- 4 tbsp golden syrup
- 1 tsp baking soda

- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
- 1 egg

In a medium saucepan, heat the milk with the butter and golden syrup. Bring to the boil and whisk in the baking soda. Set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, brown sugar and coconut.
Whisk the egg into the milk and butter mixture.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, folding until just moist. Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin cups.
In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and rolled oats for the topping. Spoon topping evenly over each muffin cup. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
