    • Low Carb Anzac Biscuits

      Ok this is my first attempt at low carb anzac biscuits, the flavour is definitely there but I still want to play around with the recipe. This is the chewy not crispy version.

      This recipe is for half a normal recipe, I made the mistake of using just one tray, they were too big and spread together but also meant I didnt cook them for long enough so put them back in the oven when I realized they were not going to firm up anymore. So my next lot over 2 trays should be better.

      I used tagatose in this recipe and had no browning issues, I also made normal anzacs so had normal ones to compare so definitely no issue with browning. I uses caramel syrup made from tagotose to replace the golden syrup but I am sure you can substitute with anything.

      These are a little softer then the normal ones but that could be due to my mistake with using one tray. Maya made the normal ones small so they had no issues with cooking time.

      I am rushing this, will look through again tomorrow :)
