Crispy Anzac Biscuit with Sunflower Seeds

Do you know that during World War 1, It was said that Anzac biscuits were sent by wives to their soldier husbands abroad? Made with mainly rolled oats, flour and desiccated coconut, these biscuits are versatile, filling, nutritious, delicious and do not spoil easily (and of course, made with much love). No wonder it became a perfect choice of food to be brought for long traveling.

Thank goodness that today, we get to enjoy it even though we are not having a war. Anzac biscuits can be made chewy or crispy. My families are obsessed with crispy cookies. This recipe, with the addition of sunflower seeds, will help you to make the ultimate crispy, crumble in the mouth type of Anzac cookies.
