- 1 cup butter
- 4 Tbsp golden syrup
- 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 2 Tbsp boiling water
- Preheat oven to 160°C (320℉)
- Lay baking paper over the biscuit/cookie trays.
- Sift the flour and then put the flour, oats, coconut and brown sugar into the mixing bowl and stir well with a wooden spoon.
- Smash out any lumps in the brown sugar.
- Put the butter and golden syrup in the saucepan over low heat, stir regularly with a wooden spoon until melted through.
- Remove from heat.
- Mix the baking soda and water together and add to the butter mixture in the saucepan. It will bubble and froth.

- Place on the biscuit/cookie trays roughly 5cm apart.
- Wash and dry your hands and then flatten down the balls well.
