  • 1 Baking Sheet, lined


  • 55 g Margarine melted, or vegan butter of your choice
  • ½ cup Plain Flour
  • ½ cup Desiccated Coconut
  • ½ cup Rolled Oats
  • ¼ cup White Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Boiling Water
  • ½ teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 teaspoon Golden Syrup


  • Preheat oven to 180c
  • Melt your margarine or butter in small bowl in the microwave or in a small pan on the hob
  • Whilst the margarine cools slightly, mix together all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  • Pour the boiling water in a small bowl, then add the bicarb. Stir well.
  • Add the golden syrup to the hot water/bicarb and stir again, just to soften the syrup a little.
  • Whisk this sticky mixture into the melted butter, then pour into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  • Using a teaspoon, scoop out dollops of the mixture, then roll into balls between your palms.
  • Place on a baking sheet, about 2" apart. Don't flatten them at all.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or so, until just golden brown.
  • Leave to cool for a couple of minutes, before gently moving to a cooling rack.
