Peanut anzac biscuits and a civilised sofa and its contents



This is a sofa. It is a pretty, clean sofa for humans. This is Hugo the big black dog. He is a naughty dog. This is Java the little speckled dog. She is also a naughty dog. Hugo does not like Java to join him on the sofa. Hugo kicks Java. He growls at Java. Poor little Java. She is sad. Hugo can be a sadistic son of a bitch at times.


Ingredients (makes 16-20)

125g spelt flour

100g desiccated coconut

40g raisins

100g rolled oats

Tablespoon chia seeds (optional)

150g unsalted peanuts

Pinch of sea salt

75g coconut oil

50g butter

80g honey

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Prepare and grease two baking trays. Combine the flour, coconut, raisins, oats, chia seeds, peanuts and salt in a large mixing bowl. Gently melt the coconut oil, butter and honey in a small saucepan and stir until smooth. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in two tablespoons of boiling water. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine well.

Roll walnut-sized pieces of dough into balls and place on the baking trays, leaving space between each ball. Flatten them slightly and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool before serving.

  1. Oh naughty Hugo

  2. Oh the cookies sound delicious and have to laugh at that drawing of Hugo on the couch. Our fur kids tend to take over couches, beds and it’s survival of the strongest. Poor sweet Java. I am sure Hugo claims tenure.

    • Thank you! I love the drawings too – my father does them. We’re constantly telling the furry monsters to get down, only to find them back up on the couches and chairs two minutes later…

      • Can’t keep a good dog down. Nope not happening. Percy LOVES being on the bed and the couch and he looks so happy and comfy I can’t restrict him. Your Father is very talented.

  3. Adore the illustration! Made me smile. As has the recipe. Pinned to try soon – gorgeous flavours. Love a good crunchy biccie 🙂
