Servings 24 cookies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup thick cut oats
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup or molasses or light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, coconut, salt, and oats. Stir to combine well.
  • In a medium to a large-sized stockpot, add the butter, golden syrup, and water. Over medium-low heat cook the mixture until the butter is melted and starts to bubble. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in the baking soda with a whisk. At this point, the mixture will double in size and foam up. See the picture in the post. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and combine well.
  • Roll the dough into ping pong sized balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat, parchment paper, or sprayed with cooking spray. Press the dough down with your fingers so that the cookies are roughly 1/4 inch thick. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 13-14 minutes. They are a crispy cookie so keep that in mind while baking. Mine always cook for 13 minutes exactly!
