1 cup (150g) plain flour
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1 cup (85g) desiccated coconut
3/4 cup (165g) brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons water

Step 2 – Put the butter, golden syrup and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Stir over a medium heat until melted. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
Step 3 – Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Step 4 – Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the trays, about 5cm apart.
