Smart Sweet: Healthy Anzac Biscuits

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

It was Anzac day today in Australia and New Zealand which is a National holiday (yippee to that!) of remembrance that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war. Hundreds of thousands get up and watch the dawn service where marches and horns are played in the early morning silence. Many foods are enjoyed and the classic is the good old Anzac biscuit. I wanted to cook a healthier version so here they are!
