1 cup flour
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup soft brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup (I used agave because I didn't have any)
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp boiling water
200g of both dark and milk chocolate (optional)
Preheat the oven to 160c and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Place flour, coconut, sugar and oats into a bowl and combine.
Melt the butter and the golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat until fully combined. While the butter is melting in a separate bowl mix the baking soda and water. When the butter has melted add the baking soda mixture and mix quickly as it fluffs up.
Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and combine well.
Roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray, press slightly with a fork.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden.
Leave to cool before dipping them in melted chocolate if you would like.
