- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two large baking trays with baking paper and set aside.
- Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Mix to combine and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, heat the butter and golden syrup over a medium low heat. Meanwhile, mix the bi carb soda with the hot water. When the butter has completely melted, remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the bi carb mixture to the saucepan and stir to combine. Take care as the mixture will quickly bubble. Pour the butter and syrup mixture into the dry ingredients, and gently stir until everything is incorporated.
- Get the kids to roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place onto the prepared trays, leaving a 2-3cm gap between each ball, as biscuits will spread. Flatten each biscuit with the back of a fork or get the kids to use their fingertips!
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden. Remove the biscuits from the oven and allow to stand for five minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Keep these biscuits in an airtight container for up to a week.
