It’s coming up to that patriotic day on the Australian calendar ANZAC Day 25th April. To me I always remember images of Gallipoli, two-up, the ANZAC Rugby League Test Matches between Australia and New Zealand and of course, ANZAC Biscuits. Now normally, I wouldn’t be recommending that you eat cookies but today’s Friday Fuel Recipe is a tweak on a recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks Anabolic Cooking. It packs around 80 calories with a solid 7g of Protein, 7g of Carbohydrates and only 2g of Fat per cookie. Get into for something different this coming ANZAC Day.

Preheat oven to 170°C. Place the egg whites, oatmeal, protein powder and coconut in a bowl and mix well. Pour golden syrup into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking sheet coated with cooking spray, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
