Recipe – Easy Oat and Coconut Cookies

Another great recipe for the kids to help with, and my kids also help with the eating too the cookies are so yummy! A grown up will need to help with the melted butter but be ready for buttery and mucky hands!

For 12 you will need:

  • 50g porridge oats
  • 80g plain flour
  • 30g desiccated coconut
  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • 80g unsalted butter
  • 30g golden syrup
  • Half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons boiling water

Preheat the oven to 140°. Line a large baking tray with silicone or non-stock sheet, or a sheet of baking parchment rubbed with oil.

Place the flour, oats, coconut and sugar in a large bowl.

Over a medium heat, melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan then remove from the heat. In a cup mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water and pour into the pan. Stir so you get a good foam and pour this into the dry mix.

Stir with a wooden spoon until the ingredients are well combined. Then using a couple of teaspoons, measure out small balls of mixture around 2cm wide. Roll them in your hands, flatten them a little and place on the baking tray. Keep a gap of around 4cm between them. You should have the right amount for 12.

Bake for 12 minutes or a little longer until golden brown. Cool on the tray for ten minutes then turn out on a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will store in an airtight container for 3 days.
