It's ANZAC day tomorrow and we're getting ready to don a red poppy and honour the fallen New Zealander and Australian soldiers that served to keep our incredible country safe.

On the 25th of April 1915, our ANZAC forces landed in Gallipoli (now part of Turkey) and stormed the Gallipoli Peninsula. There they were surprised by fierce opposition and suffered the loss of many ANZAC lives. 

Back at home, trays of simple, oat bikkies were being baked to raise funds for the war effort at galas, parades and other public events. It is also widely believed that these hardy, oat biscuits were sent to loved ones fighting on the Western Front.

After the battle at Gallipoli, these biscuits became known as ANZAC biscuits and they have become a traditional bikkie that we still bake for the fallen soldiers today. 

To remember our ANZAC soldiers we've created a delicious, BePure ANZAC biscuit recipe. This recipe honours the original oaty taste but has a BePure spin – it's free from the common dietary aggravators - gluten, dairy and refined sugars.

Enjoy these as a special treat with a mug of our delicious BePure Chai Latte.
