This week at The Pod’s Cookery Club we’ll be baking ‘Coconut Cookies’. If you’d like to try these delicious teatime treats and cook along at home with an adult you can follow the recipe below. 



  • 100g of plain flour
  • 100g of light brown sugar
  • 100g of desiccated coconut
  • 150g of jumbo rolled oats
  • 100g of unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons of water, boiling


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

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 tablespoons 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

7. Separate the mixture into balls. Place the balls onto a baking tray and press down slightly to flatten into cookies
