Anzac Slice Recipe

Hi everyone, Amanda from ‘Simple home cook’ here. I’m back with another recipe that is simple, delicious and just in time for ANZAC day. It is also great for lunchboxes too.

I do love ANZAC cookies but if you are short on time and can’t be bothered adding tablespoons of mixture onto a tray, then dump it all in, press it down and bake as a slice. It is much quicker and just as good.

Amanda started on this journey when her 3rd child was born, and feeding a family of 5 became even more of a challenge with three children under 3 1/2 years of age! She started working on a list of recipes that were simple and affordable that she could make ahead of time so she wasn’t stuck in the kitchen at 5pm when the household duties kicked up a notch. Amanda’s goal is to create simple meals that anyone can cook and enjoy without spending hours in the kitchen. Her recipes are perfect for that busy weeknight dinner, snacks to fill the lunch boxes or for students learning to cook.
