  • baking sheet
  • spatula
  • measuring cup
  • wooden spoon
  • baking paper
  • cooking spray


  • 1.5 c shredded coconut
  • 0.5 c cake flour
  • 2 c oats no instant oats
  • 0.5 c sugar white or brown
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.5 c butter 140 g
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 0.25 c milk full cream
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  • Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk and set it aside.
  • Add all the dry ingredients together (coconut, flour, oats, sugar, salt, cinnamon).
  • Heat the butter and the syrup on the stove or in the microwave until it is melted and starts to simmer.
  • Add the milk and bicarbonate of soda mixture to the dry ingredients.
  • Add the butter and golden syrup mixture to the dry ingredients.
  • Mix well with a silicone spatula or with your hands. The mixture is very dry but should hold together if you squeeze it. If not, add a little bit of milk.
  • Spray a medium-sized baking tray with cooking spray and then line it with baking paper.
  • Bake it for about 20 minutes at 180°C/350°F. Each oven differs, so be sure to check after 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes I cut my cookies already and then I put it back again for another 10 minutes. The longer you bake these, the crunchier they get. If you like a softer cookie, you can test them after 10 minutes or so.


Remember, these cookies harden as they cool.
