*Editor's Note: Golden syrup is made from cane sugar and is common in Europe and Australia. It is sweeter than corn syrup. If you can't find it, corn syrup or a combination of corn syrup and molasses, or corn syrup and honey could be used as a substitute.
Preheat oven to 170 degrees C (340 degrees F). Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Put oats, sugar, flour and coconut into a large bowl and stir to combine.
Place butter and golden syrup into a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the butter has melted. Remove from heat and add the bicarbonate of soda mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons water. Pour this into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place them on trays allowing room the spread. Press down on the tops to flatten slightly (I use the back of fork to do this, and it leave a nice marking on the mixture). Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. They will go crisp when they are cool.

A friend of mine sent this recipe to me. She found it in a budgeting booklet years ago in New Zealand. These biscuits were lifesavers when the money was tight. They are cheap to make, easy to bake, and delicious to eat and have become a family favorite. This is definitely a recipe I intend on passing on to my children. Hope you enjoy these biscuits.
Melt the butter in a pot. Take off the heat and add golden syrup. Stir until golden syrup is dissolved. Stir in sugar, rolled oats and flour.
In a small bowl or cup, dissolve baking soda in water and add to mixture. Mix evenly.
Put teaspoon lots onto a greased oven tray (leave room for spreading). Bake at 170 degrees C (340 degrees F) for 8-15 minutes or until golden.
Store in an airtight container.

Editor's Note: Golden syrup is a byproduct of sugar cane, originally invented in London in the 1900's. It may be able to be found in specialty stores or major grocery chains in the U.S. Here is an article on Wikipedia about it:
