Make a break from the traditional biscuits with a deliciously easy ANZAC Slice! This ANZAC slice is the perfect lunch box treat!
The other day I wanted to make a batch of ANZAC biscuits, but I got distracted halfway through and ran out of time! So rather than roll the mixture into balls like I usually do, I popped the whole bowl of dough into a slice tray and baked it in the oven. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to do this before. ANZAC Slice is like the cool cousin to ANZAC biscuits (although I still have a very fond spot for the traditional bikkies!).
I used my favourite ANZAC biscuit recipe because I think it’s just the best and yummiest thing ever. Don’t even get me started on how much I love eating the cookie dough. I usually feel really naughty when I eat cookie dough (because I know that eating raw egg is a no-no), but it’s just soooo darn good. The best thing is that because these ANZACS contain no egg, I can happily eat the raw dough completely guilt-free.
After the slice cooled, I cut it into muesli bar sized pieces – perfect for little people’s lunch boxes! If you’re running short on time, or just want a bit of a change from your usual ANZAC biscuits, then definitely give ANZAC Slice a go.
