Sibo Anzac Biscuit Recipe 786x1024


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup walnuts (chopped very finely in a food processor)
  • 1/3 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Pre-heat your oven to 250F. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl place the almond flour, coconut and walnuts. Mix together and create a well in the middle of the mixture.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter (or coconut oil) and honey together. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the baking soda and water. Stir this until it becomes a white-ish foam.
  • Pour your honey and butter mix into the well in your dry ingredients. Add the vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  • Take dessertspoons of the mixture and roll it in your palm into a ball, as firmly as possible. Be patient, this mix holds together well but needs a little handling. Place the ball on your baking tray and flatten out a little.
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven. Leave to cool on the baking sheet and don't handle until they have hardened.

    1. Hi Denise, you can! You will need to play around with the moisture content though depending on what you use.

    1. Sorry you didn’t like them. They are not an overly sweet cookie because…SIBO! But you’re welcome to add some extra sweetener to your taste if you make them again.

  1. I made these and they are delicious but very, very moist. They definitely weren’t biscuits. I reviewed my measurements and they were correct. Any idea?

    1. They should come together like a soft cookie. Did you use butter or coconut oil? And did you make any alterations/substitutions to the ingredients?

    1. Hi Rachel
      The honey/maple syrup helps to bind the mixture together so substituting it with stevia won’t work, as it will be lacking that binding ability.

    1. These cookies are cooked at a low temp. If you increase the temp you just need to decrease the cooking time.

    1. I’ve never tried it (because we eat them all before they would need freezing!) but I don’t see why you couldn’t.

  2. Is maple syrup allowed on the SIBO food guide or Bi Phasic diet? I was trying to avoid it but you like to use it if allowed.

    1. Rebecca Coomes

      Maple syrup isn’t one of the included sweeteners on the SIBO Bi Phasic Diet, but it is Low FODMAP, so many people can tolerate it. You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you want to follow the diet strictly.

    1. Hi Sara
      Honey is allowed on the SIBO Specific Food Guide and SIBO Bi Phasic Diet. At 1 tsp (7g), honey is Low FODMAP but above that, it’s moderate or high depending on the quantity.
      If you’ve got a fructose intolerance, you may prefer maple syrup, but it will change the flavour to a maple flavour instead of a honey flavour, but it will still be delicious.
      Happy baking!

      1. Thanks for these, they look yummy… my husband follows an SCD diet and it’s really helped his SIBO, so honey is perfect – I use honey in all my cake recipes (usually made with ground almonds and coconut) and he’s improved so much, so I’ve found honey is fine for many people with SIBO.

        1. Rebecca Coomes

          Yes, for many people, honey is absolutely fine. I love getting local raw honey. It’s so thick, creamy and delicious!
