Hi amazing people. ANZAC day has come and gone, its great to remember those who fought for us. After celebrating this special day in the best possible manner, have you ever wandered what you could do with the leftover ANZAC biscuits? I mean I am all for the milk and dunking expedition, but sometimes its fun to get a little adventurous, even if this case is super simple.
I wanted to come up with something that will utilize not only the cookies but also ingredients that you would have leftover from making them or naturally have in your pantry. So that is a win win.
I tested this recipe a few times and not only do we get that undeniable syrup and coconut combination coming through, but the touch of the crunchy ANZAC biscuit is an extra bit of fun to extend that smile.
So my friends I would love to introduce you to a Strawberry Chia ANZAC Loaf, the ideal solution to what to do with leftover ANZAC biscuits. I think this is ideal for when you have friends coming over for coffee, morning tea or relatives visiting. Not only is it a standard baking effort of wet vs dry, so its honestly that simple. but it looks amazing and is super delicious.
I have gone #GlutenFree flour, but feel free to use regular all purpose if you wish. Watch the video below or hit up the recipe at the bottom!
