These are the simplest biscuits you can make – it’s just melt and mix – and everyone seems to love them. If you don’t like coconut, just replace it with more oats. You can also add seeds.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
115g butter, at room temperature
55g golden caster sugar or soft light brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
70g plain flour
salt
100g rolled oats
60g desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line baking trays – you will probably need two or three unless they are very big – with baking paper.
  2. Heat the butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a saucepan over a low heat. When everything is melted together, remove from the heat. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in 1 tablespoon hot water and add this to the butter mixture. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix to form a dough.
  3. Place teaspoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking trays, leaving a good 5 cm gap between them, as the biscuits will spread out as they cook. Bake for 12–15 minutes – they should be golden. They will crisp up while they cool so don’t try to move them as soon as they come out of the oven.
