• 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ cup soft brown sugar
  • 125 g butter
  • 2 Tbsp golden syrup
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp boiling water
  • 200 g dark chocolate, melted

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

2. Combine the rolled oats, coconut, flour and soft brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.

3. Melt the butter and golden syrup together. Dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water and add to the butter mixture. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together.

4. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on the tray and flatten with a fork.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven. Transfer the biscuits to a cooling rack. When cold dip half in melted chocolate. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper until chocolate is set.

To melt chocolate

Break chocolate into a mixing bowl. Sit the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and allow to melt gently. Do not allow water to get into the chocolate as it will seize and become unusable. Alternatively place in a microwave proof bowl and heat on high for 10 second bursts until melted – being careful not to let the chocolate burn.

Yummy. So simple to prepare and ingredients easy to find. Made these this evening - warmed up body and soul!!!!! Made extra to give to my Great Uncle who is a war veteran living in a war veteran's home. Many thanks for the inspiration.
