    Can I use soaked dried pitted dates instead of medjool dates?

    • You could try that. I would double the amount required.

    • You could try it. I would double the amount and you may need to presoak them. I hope that helps.

  • Rach_the_vego

    yum….I think I will try this and just use dates to sweeten – I reckon and extra 1/4 cup would work as a guess 🙂 Thanks

    • Great. I hope you enjoy them, let me know how you go.

  • Krystal

    Yumm!! Hubby couldn’t tell the difference between healthy and not so healthy version. Love it! Thanks!

    • Fabulous!! Thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it. x

    I feel that it is for a reason that Australia’s ANZAC day happens to be our anniversary.
    We are already looking forward to living in Oz and having this day off every single year to celebrate one more together. <3
    Resolute to make these on our first April 25th down under.
    You brigthen up my days here in cold stormy Germany (summer!)
    Thanks Bianca x
    Sending even more sunshine

    • Thank you. It is the first day of spring here, I am sending you blossoms and sunshine. x

    I don’t have maple syrup…. Can I double the honey? Plus, I’m in the middle east where we mainly have a half dried half fresh date. Should I increase the number or soak them? ?

    • You can double the amount of dates and soak them. You can also use all honey. I hope you enjoy them. x

    The first time I made these, I followed the easy pop it all in the processor recipe – yum! Didn’t wait 15 minutes before eating them though : ) This time I made these with what I had including 4 dried pitted dates, 1/2 TBP coconut oil, golden syrup (1TBP), honey (1TBP) and tried 2 TBP rice malt syrup. Also in the food processor – yum! Thank you for your easy recipes!

    • Perfect!!! Thank you so much. I am glad you like them. x

  • Jenni

    I made these today for Australia day and they were really good 🙂 I added 1 tbsp of water to help the mixture stick together a bit more and also baked them at 170 for about 25 minutes because I think my oven is colder or something

    • Fabulous!! Thank YOU for the feedback. I am glad they were enjoyed. x

  • Franie

    I just want to stay home all day and try EVERY one of your recipes.

    • And then let me know how you go with them and which ones are your favourites 🙂

  • Shelley

    i made these and they were Yum, but so crumbly! what did I do wrong?

    • Hmm, I am not sure, they may have need more blending time? You can double the dates next time and that should help 0 did you use the medjool dates?

  • wendy

    If I don’t use dates and double honey.. Will that work?

  • Kym Petersen

    Could you freeze these? Thinking ahead for school lunch boxes! Many thanks

    • Yes I think that would be fine. I hope you enjoy them. x

  • Kim Lee-ane

    This time I made your Anzacs heart-shaped 😀 I had some left over melted chocolate from another recipe, so I drizzled that on as well.

    Clint & I will be enjoying them tomorrow for our Anniversary xox

    • They look perfect as does everything you make!!! Happy Anniversary!! xxxxx

  • Georgie

    • That is great to hear Georgie. Thank YOU! I really appreciate the feedback and I hope you find many more recipes that you enjoy. x

  • Kylie

    Thanks for this recipe. They are delicious and a much healthier alternative to the usual Anzac buscuits. I made your coconut rough last night so I should have known to come to you first before trawling Pinterest unsuccessfully! Thanks again!

    • You made me laugh!!! Thank YOU. I am glad you enjoyed them. I really appreciate the feedback. Bianca

  • Gerri

    Miss 7 has a super sweet tooth, but tonight, she declared she likes these more than the “normal” sugar laden recipe 🙂 Thank you x

  • Vaneeta

    I made these today. Filling and yummy. Just the right sweetness. Held together well. Thank you. I would happily let my kids munch on these.

    Hey Bianca, is there anything i can use instead of the hulled tahini?

    • Ciara Niclasen

      Hi there.
      I use almond butter or any nut butter i have on hand and they work out great. 😊
      Hope this helps.

    • Any nut butter will be fine x

  • Ciara Niclasen

    Thank you again and again for another great recipe. These worked a treat as muesli bars for my little one.

    • Perfect!!! Thank YOU!! I will have to do that!

  • Amy Berich

    What could i use instead of oats? I have coeliac disease and cant eat oats 😊

    These are SO GOOD! I don’t think they taste anything like Anzacs (sorry!) but more like delicious coconut macaroons with a chewy crust. I made them with rice malt syrup instead of honey, but no other changes. Took them along to my Women’s Circle last night and everyone asked for the recipe.

    Beautiful recipe, and so easy! Will be making these a lot. Thank you!! Xx
