1 cup plain flour
   1 cup rolled oats
   3/4 cup soft brown sugar
   1 cup dessicated coconut
   125gms/4ozs butter
   2 generous tbsps golden syrup
   1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
   2 tbsps boiling water


Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar and dessicated coconut.

In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter and golden syrup.

Mix bicarb of soda with the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup mixture, mix with wooden spoon. [CAUTION: Mixture will froth considerably.]

Add to the dry mixture in mixing bowl, stir until well-mixed.

Line a baking/biscuit tray with baking paper.

Using fingers, form 36 balls (slightly smaller than a ping-pong ball), place on baking tray and flatten slightly with prongs of a fork.

The biscuits expand during baking so do not place them too close together.

Bake for 15 - 20mins.

Transfer to cooling racks and allow to cool completely.

NB: The biscuits will be soft and will crisp up as they cool.

Store in air-tight cookie jar and see how long they last! ;-)
