125 g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1 cup chopped natural almonds
whole almonds, blanched or natural
Put butter, golden syrup and water in a large saucepan and put on low heat to melt.
Add bicarb soda, the mixture should start to foam
Add sugar, oats, flour, coconut and chopped almonds. Mix well. Allow mixture to cool
Roll mixture into small balls and place onto greased tray or use baking paper. Allow room to spread.
Press an almond into each ball, flattening slightly as you do this.
Bake 150 deg C for approx 15 minutes or until golden brown. If you like the biscuits to be chewy rather than hard remove a little sooner.
