Thermobexta’s Anzac Slice

Anzac squaresMy go-to recipe for Anzac bickies for the past few years has been one on the TOM Organics website. It was easy to make, used a selection of ingredients I always have on hand and the bickies were just perfect. I went to make them last week and was sad to find the recipe was no longer there! So of course that meant I needed to try my hand at coming up with something Anzac-ish, Thermobexta-style. Having just typed this, I thought I better double check that recipe I referred to in the first sentence is definitely not there and it has actually been added back on to their website (just a few days ago!) Here is the link, it is terrific if you are wanting biscuits rather than a slice.

130g coconut oil
50g rice malt syrup
1 tbs boiling water
1 tsp bi-carbonate of soda
100g coconut sugar
70g rolled oats
60g desiccated coconut
40g chia seeds
200g wholemeal spelt flour

1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line the base and sides of a slice tin with baking paper, allowing the long edges to overhang a little.

2. Place coconut oil and rice malt syrup in mixer bowl. Heat for 2 minutes/90/speed 2/MC off.

3. Meanwhile, place bi-carb soda and boiling water into the MC (the measuring cup from the middle of the bowl’s lid). Mix with a teaspoon to dissolve bi-carb and add this to the bowl when the heating time in step 1 is complete.

4. Add sugar, oats, coconut, chia and flour. Combine for 20 seconds/reverse/speed 3/MC on.

5. Transfer mixture into the lined tin. Use clean hands to compress the mixture and flatten surface. Bake for 20 minutes, or until slice is golden brown.

6. After removing slice from the oven, leave in the tin to cool for a minimum of 30 minutes, before lifting out and cutting in to squares.

  1. Quick and easy. Taste like the other versions 🙂 a winner as a work morning tea today.
    Lucky they took the recipe of the website otherwise you may not have shared this!


  2. I made this today Bec and it is beautiful! After slicing it up I sprinkled the crumbs on yogurt and had it for morning tea, yummm!


    1. Tried substituting plain GF flour for the spelt..flavour was great but it was dry and crumbly. I will add more coconut oil next time


    2. Yes! I added a little less of the quantity of gf flour and more coconut oil. Tasted delicious! Was a little crumbly but definitely need the extra liquid.


  3. Can I ask if I can just wholemeal plain flour have never had any luck with seeing spelt flour unless I have to look somewhere special?


    1. It should be fine, just add a little more liquid if needed. The mix should be on the sticky side, not runny or too wet. Buying spelt in bulk is he best way, or you can get it in woolies (macro brand) or health food stores.


  4. Best way to store this? In the fridge? How long should it last (if everyone doesn’t gobble it up today!). Have made for a friend who’s just had a baby so want to pass on info.
