Happy Australia Day and Vegan Anzac Biscuits

Its been over a year now that we have left Sydney and we certainly miss it quite a bit. So last night as we played Waltzing Matilda, I figured some Anzac cookies are in order. Yet vegan Anzac cookies, while easy to make are rather difficult to find online (or at least the recipe is). These turned out lovely, soft in the middle and crunchy on the outside, definitely good enough to transport us back to our Australian adventure. Best part: everybody helped!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup shredded (unsweetened) coconut
1 cup vegan brown sugar (ideally raw)
3/4 cup vegan butter, melted 
2 tbs flax-egg (flax meal with water)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tea of baking soda
optional: 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (my favorite brand by far is Enjoy Life)

Makes 10 large cookies. Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes (if you end up with more smaller cookies, adjust the baking time). If you use sweetened coconut or white sugar adjust the sugar levels accordingly. Oil can be substituted for vegan butter, but the butter gives it more of a cookie consistency and oil makes them more crumbly.
