  • 1 & 1/4 cups of plain flour
  • 1 & 1/4 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 150 g of  butter - chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons of boiling water


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a slice tin (approx 28cm x 18cm) with baking paper. Make sure you leave paper hanging over the edges to help you remove it from the tin later.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar and coconut using a large metal spoon and make a well in the centre.
  • Place the butter and golden syrup in a small saucepan and cook over a low heat for 6 - 8 minutes or until the butter has melted and the ingredients have combined.  Make sure to stir the mixture every minute or so.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the bicarbonate of soda and boiling water. Then remove the melted butter mixture from the heat and stir in the dissolved bicarbonate of soda mixture.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the well made from the dry ingredients. Use a large metal spoon to combine.
  • Pour the slice into your  prepared pan and using the back of a spoon, press the mixture evenly into slice tray.  Bake for 25 minutes or until the slice is golden brown.
  • Carefully remove the slice from the oven and allow it to completely cool in the tray.
  • Use the overhanging baking paper to remove the slice from the tin and cut into squares to serve.
