Sweeten up ANZAC Day with these low-sugar and #ResponsiblySweet recipes
ANZAC Day is a time to remember and honour the brave soldiers who fought for Australia and New Zealand. And what better way to pay tribute than with the traditional ANZAC biscuit? But if you're watching your sugar intake, you might think you have to skip this sweet treat.
Think again! With these low-sugar and #ResponsiblySweet recipes from Lakanto, you can enjoy the classic ANZAC flavour without the guilt.
First up, we have the classic ANZAC or Soldier Biscuits. Made with rolled oats, butter, desiccated coconut, and the Lakanto Monfruit Golden Sweetener, these biscuits are naturally low in carbs and sugar.
Instead of golden syrup, the recipe uses Lakanto Golden Malt Flavoured Syrup, which has a lower glycaemic index and won't cause a spike in blood sugar levels. Added benefits, when compared to using sugar, are 43% less Carbs, 97% less Sugar and 23% less Calories.
Note: You can also use our Lakanto Low Carb Pancake mix as an alternative to flour and this will drop the Carbs by a further 4g per serve. And don't worry – they still have that crunchy texture and coconut flavour you love in ANZAC biscuits.
ANZAC Apple Plum Crumble
But why stop at biscuits? You can also enjoy ANZAC flavours in other treats, including desserts such as this ANZAC Plum Crumble which is a delicious alternative that combines the classic ANZAC biscuit topping with sweet and tangy fruit filling made with plums and apples.
The crumble is made with a mixture of rolled oats, butter, vanilla essence and Lakanto Golden Malt Flavoured Syrup for added richness and flavour without the sugar spike. It also uses Lakanto's popular Pancake mix instead of traditional flour as this helps reduce the overall carb count and binds the oats beautifully giving you a golden crunch on the top of the crumble. The difference between this recipe and using standard sugar and plain flour is 55% less carbs, 84% less sugar and 30% less calories resulting in a warm and comforting dessert that is perfect for cool evenings and can be served with a dollop of cream or natural yoghurt for added indulgence.
ANZAC Bliss Balls
This recipe for ANZAC Bliss Balls is another healthier twist on the classic ANZAC biscuit. The recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, making it suitable for a wide range of dietary needs.
The balls are made with a mixture of rolled oats, cashews, Lakanto Golden Malt Flavoured Syrup, desiccated coconut, and almond butter, which are blended together. When compared to using sugar, these bliss balls have 50% less Carbs and 79% less Sugar and will keep in the fridge for up to five days.
These ANZAC Bliss Balls are an easy mid-morning snack or an afternoon pick-me-up and are a wonderful way to enjoy the flavours of ANZAC biscuits in a healthier way.
