Ingredients

  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (80g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55g) brown sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place the flour, coconut, oats and combined sugar in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.

STEP 2

Place the butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 mins or until butter is melted. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.

STEP 3

Combine 1 1/2 tbs boiling water and the bicarbonate of soda in a small bowl. Add to the oat mixture with the butter mixture. Stir until well combined.

STEP 4

Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays, allowing space for spreading. Gently press each ball to flatten slightly. Bake for 15 mins for crisp biscuits. Set aside on the trays to cool completely. The biscuits will harden as they cool.
