My sugar-free ANZAC biscuits + 50% off sale

This post has been updated.

I’m getting older and more sentimental and this year’s ANZAC day is piquing some emotional spots. For readers outside Australia and New Zealand, ANZAC day is a national day of remembrance to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli during World War I.

Today, as well as running an ANZAC biscuit recipe, and a special sale offer, I’m giving $1 from every sale to the ANZAC Appeal. Next year, I hope I have the time to be more intimate.
