A fast, delicious and budget friendly lunchbox treat or afternoon tea recipe
Course: afternoon tea, lunchbox treat
Cuisine: Australian
Keyword: budget friendly, dairy free, family food
Servings: 16 slices
Author: Alex M
Cost: $5


  • 1 cup self-raising flour. I use gluten free.
  • 1 cup desicated coconut
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 125 g butter melted (to make dairy free, substitute with Nuttelex
  • 1 tbs golden syrup
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Line a slice tin with baking paper. I used a rectangular tin with dimensions 27.5 cm x 17.5 cm x 3.5 cm. This is a standard slice sized tin that can be found in most supermarkets and kitchen stores.
  • Add all ingredients into mixing bowl and combine till evenly mixed.
  • Press into slice tin. You may need to use a spatula to push it in evenly.
  • Bake until lightly browned. Check at 20 minutes. If you prefer a crunchier Anzac experience, then leave for a few more minutes
  • Remove and allow to cool before cutting them into approximately 16 pieces.
  • Enjoy!


If you aren’t following a dairy free diet, you could use normal butter instead of Nuttetex. Nuttelex is a dairy free margarine that can be found in all Australian supermarkets. 
You could add 1/3 cup of mixed nuts, add some icing or even some sultanas. Make it your own!
Lots of love
