      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1.  Preheat oven to 160C fan-forced.

    Line 2 baking trays with baking paper


  2.  (If using pre-made almond meal, skip to next step)

    Add almonds (NOT including the Almond flakes), to TM bowl.

    Chop for 5secs, speed 7.

    Check texture and if necessary, again for another 1-2 seconds. (Texture does not need to be too fine for this recipe) 


    Set aside in a separate bowl.  No need to clean TM bowl before continuing.


  3. Place butter and Golden Syrup in TM bowl.  Heat for 3m30s, 80C,speed 1, or until butter melted.



  4. Add all other ingredients, including the almond meal.

    Mix 10secs, Counter-clockwise operation, speed 5

    Scrape down bowl with spatula, and mix again 3secs, Counter-clockwise operation, speed 5


  5. Roll approx. tablespoonfuls on mixture into balls using hands, (but can be sticky and messy!), or using 2 tablespoons 'quenelle' style to approx. ball shape. 

    Place on trays approx. 4 cm apart.


  6. Bake for 13-15 mins, swapping and turning trays halfway through cooking, until golden.


    Stand on trays for 5 mins, then transfer to wire rack to cool.



    Serve when cooled (if you can wait that long!)


    Store in airtight container for up to 4-5 days.

In honour of the Centenary of Gallipoli, and in commemoration of all Anzac Diggers - past, present, and future.

Adapted from the Taste.com.au recipe.

Can substitute almond meal with Gluten free self raising flour, but I prefer the nuttier texture and flavour of this version!

Can also substitute the Quinoa flakes for the traditional rolled oats.

For something a bit sweeter, add a handful of sultanas and/or currants.

This should also work for the TM31

    These biscuits have a really beautiful flavour. Once mine were cooked I couldn't work out why my biscuits didn't look anything like the picture and were really soft in the middle. After checking the Taste magazine recipe I discovered that 1 cup of gf self raising flour should have been added. I will make these again because they did taste nice. Please fix the error so other people don't make the same mistake.  tmrc_emoticons.(
