1 Cup Dessicated Coconut
1 Cup Self-Raising Flour
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
125g Butter, unsalted
2 Tbl Golden Syrup
2 Tbl Water
1 tsp Bicarb. Soda
Preheat oven to 160C.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, coconut, flour and brown sugar and set aside.
In a microwave-safe container, place the butter, syrup and water and heat until the butter has melted completely. Â You can also do this in a saucepan on the stove over a low heat. Â Once the butter has melted, add the bicarb. soda and watch it froth up. Â To be honest, I frequently forget the bicarb. soda, and I canâ€™t really see the difference it makes.
Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Roll mixture into balls approximately the size of a rum ball and place on a tray lined with grease-proof paper. Â Flatten slightly with the back of a fork.
Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on how you like your biscuits (chewy or crunchy), but be careful, once they start to turn gold, they will burn rather quickly.
Allow them to cool slightly before removing them from the tray otherwise they will fall apart.
Enjoy with a nice hot cuppa or a glass of milk for the kids.
