"Traditional Australian recipe, handed down from my mother. Originally, these delicious bikkies (biscuits) were lovingly baked and sent in care packages to our soldiers at war. I am an Aussie living in Japan, so I know the substitutions work because I have had to use them!!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets. Mix quick oats, flour, coconut, brown sugar, and ginger in a bowl. With your fingers, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  2. Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water. In a small saucepan, melt the butter, and stir in the golden syrup to combine. Pour in the dissolved baking soda, and pour the mixture into the well in the dry ingredients. Stir lightly until just combined; drop by rounded tablespoon about 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Ground ginger can be substituted with fresh finely minced ginger -- reduce quantity slightly. Golden syrup can be substituted with light-flavored molasses, but golden syrup is definitely better!

Hi, I tried to make those cookies, and followed the recipe... but they ended up not holding together, really dry. It was like some kind of granola mix.

Very good - thank you

simple recipe - classic taste!

These are a very enjoyable, easy little cookie to make. My daughter was dubious, but we both thought they were great! Oh, and since I make my 'brown sugar' by adding molasses to dehydrated can...

Thank you, Aussie Gal! If anyone finds the mixture does not stick together, add a teaspoon of water and problem solved! This is the recipe I have been looking for.

I added an egg to the mixture because, like another reviewer mentioned, it was like granola. Even with the egg they barely held together but I figured that the baking process would take care of ...

These taste delicious, but came out very flat and greasy. I followed the directions exactly but may try them again with less butter.
