  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup

2. Place butter and golden syrup in a saucepan to melt, or microwave in a bowl to melt. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water. Add melted ingredients and dissolved baking soda to dry ingredients and mix to combine.

3. Roll spoonfuls into balls and press onto prepared baking trays, allowing space for biscuits to spread while cooking.

4. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool, and enjoy!

    I have also just made these and I replaced the rolled oats with wheat bran. What a difference. Great for the body as well.
