These are essentially anzac biscuits but with less butter to make them a little less naughty. I’ve now found Seb’s biscuit weakness…I swear, any recipe with golden syrup in it is always a winner. Mark my words.
1.5 cup flour
1.5 cup oats
1 cup of shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons boiling water
1. Place flour, oats, coconut and sugar into a bowl and mix until combined. Make a well in the middle ready for the butter mixture.
2. In a saucepan melt butter and golden syrup together and add vanilla extract. In a small bowl mix the bicarbonate of soda and water together until it starts foaming. Add to the butter mixture and stir.
3. Add butter mixture into the dry ingredients and stir well. Take teaspoons of mixture and roll into balls and place on non stick trays. Squash balls of mixture with fork and pop trays into the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
