I thought since ANZAC day is just a few days away (April 25), I would make some bikkies to celebrate it. I found this recipe and modified it just a little.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1 stick and a little (125 g) butter*
2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup
1 Tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda)
*Conversions never really match up. I used about 9 Tablespoons of butter
Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar, rolled oats, and coconut.
Melt the butter along with the golden syrup and water in a saucepan.
Stir the baking soda in.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ones and mix well.
Form small balls and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350*F (175*C). For a more chewy cookie bake for 12 minutes, then leave them on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes after taking them out of the oven. For a harder/crunchier bikkie, bake for 15-20 minutes.
Happy ANZAC Day!!
