This coconut biscuit recipe from Andy Waters is a fun and simple biscuit to prepare from pantry essentials you may already have in your cupboard. Children can help by rolling and flattening the dough on the baking tray. Make these cookies as a sweet snack or a lunchbox treat for kids to enjoy

Method
1.
Preheat the oven to 175°C/gas mark 4
2.
Line a baking tray with baking parchment
3.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, coconut and oats, blending well
Room for a little one
Messy, floury hands should be the sign of a job well-done. Just make sure their hands are washed before getting stuck into the mix
4.
In a small pan, melt the butter and golden syrup over a low heat
5.
In a small bowl, dissolve the bicarbonate soda in the 2 tbsp of boiling water. Combine with the golden syrup and butter
6.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the warm golden syrup mixture, mixing well to form a dough
Back to school
Making dough in this way is a great skill for children to learn. Teach them to make a well in the centre and explain that this will ensure the syrup stays in the centre of the mix
7.
Separate the mixture into balls. Place the balls onto a baking tray and press down slightly to flatten into cookies
Room for a little one
Little hands will make light work of rolling the dough into balls and then flattening down into cookies
8.
Place into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the biscuits are golden
9.
Once baked, remove and place straight onto a wire rack to cool. Serve
