Two Delicious ANZAC-Inspired Recipes

Bye-bye banana bread

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 23rd April 2020

Ah, the humble ANZAC biscuit. Delicious, nutritious (oats count, right?)  and the perfect amount of crunch. The once homely reprieve for soldiers abroad is now the perfectly timed iso-baking treat here to kick banana bread to the curb.

To help Brisbanites remember our ANZACs and those they left behind, Legacy Brisbane has released a limited eBook with a selection of ANZAC-inspired recipes to keep the spirit alive. Straight from the personal cookbooks of our local favourites, we’re giving you a sneak taste of the action with journalist Kendall Gilding’s family Crunchy ANZAC Biscuit recipe and Miss Bliss owner Jacqui Toumbas’ Macadamia and Maple ANZAC Granola.
