Where old traditions meet new flavours and methods — the classic ANZAC biscuit has been reinvented! 

We love ANZAC biscuits. They are a staple of any Australian household on ANZAC Day and, to be honest, any day of the year. But, what we also love is a fusion of old and new.

This is where Traeger Grills Australia ambassador, Sarah Glover, steps in. You may know her from her Heirloom Tomato Shakshuka with Bacon Salsa Recipe, her legendary Whiskey Grilled Chicken Wings or, our personal favourite, a summer inspired Cabbage and Pawpaw Salad. She’s also the famed author behind the Wild Adventure Cookbook.

So, just in time for ANZAC Day celebrations, Sarah has shared with us the recipe behind her latest creation, the easy Baked ANZAC Biscuit Apple Crumbles. Enjoy!

Duration: 50 minutes | Difficulty: Easy | Servings: 6


6 granny smith apples
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup apple sauce*
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt


1. Preheat your Traeger Grill with the lid closed to 180°C. Alternatively, preheat your oven to 180°C fan forced.

2. Next, cut each apple in half horizontally through the middle. Using a melon baller, cut out the cores, leaving a rounded hole.

3. Rub the exposed apple flesh with the lemon juice, and fill each hole with 1 tablespoon of the apple sauce. Transfer the apple halves to a snug-fitting baking dish.

4. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, butter, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and salt, until you have a crumble mixture.

5. Press the crumble on top of each apple half, then transfer to the Traeger (or oven) close the lid and cook for 35–40 minutes, until the apple is soft and the crumble is golden brown.

6. Remove and enjoy!

*To make apple sauce: Using the discarded apple from step 2, add it to a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of cold water. Bring to a boil on high heat and then reduce to medium. Cover and cook until the apples soften. Stir in 1/2 a lemon’s rind and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Allow to cool before transferring to a food processor to puree until smooth.
