100 g / 1 cup oats
85 g / ¾ cup (slightly heaped) desiccated coconut
100 g / 1 cup + 1 tbsp all purpose flour
100 g / ½ cup + 1 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate soda / baking soda
2 tbsp water, hot
100 g / 3.5 oz vegan butter, margarine or refined coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup or golden syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C / 355° F.
  2. Put the oats, desiccated coconut, flour and sugar in a medium mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Melt the vegan butter in a small saucepan over a low heat, add the maple syrup and stir until combined.
  4. In a small bowl, dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the 2 tbsp of hot water and add to the melted butter mixture.
  5. Add the melted butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir gently until it is mixed well.
  6. Roll mixture into balls with your hands (it should make 20 at 25 g each), flatten each ball so that you have 1 cm / 0.4″ high cookies, and place them 2 cm / 1″ apart on a paper lined baking tray.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
