  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 Tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 Tbsp boiling water


    1. Preheat oven to 160°C (320℉)
    2. Lay baking paper over the biscuit/cookie trays.
    3. Sift the flour and then put the flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar into the mixing bowl and stir well with a wooden spoon.
    4. Smash out any lumps in the brown sugar.
    5. Put the butter and golden syrup in the saucepan over low heat, stir regularly with a wooden spoon until melted through.
    6. Remove from heat.
    7. Mix the baking soda and water together and add to the butter mixture in the saucepan. It will bubble and froth.
    8. Quickly add the frothy mixture to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix everything together really well.
    9. Roll the mixture into balls about 2cm round.
    10. Place on the biscuit/cookie trays roughly 5cm apart.
    11. Wash and dry your hands and then flatten down the balls well.
    12. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks.


  • Make sure the biscuits are spaced well apart or they'll end up being one giant biscuit in the middle of the tray.
