Coconut Biscuits

Coconut Bisuits



Your kids are going to love making these Coconut Biscuits. They’re quick and easy to make and should only take you about thirty minutes from start to finish.

My wife is slowly working her way through our favourite cookery book at the moment, and on the hunt for something different, she came across these Coconut Biscuits.

Thankfully, she made them before I went back to Weight-Watchers, so I’m pleased to report, I can highly recommend these Coconut Biscuits. They were tasty and a little bit crunchy.

If you have somebody that’s unable to eat nuts, you can always substitute the Coconut for an extra 50g of Oats.

  2. Melt the butter and syrup together, in a small saucepan, over a low heat. make sure they are mixed together thoroughly.
  3. In a jug, mix together the bicarbonate of soda with the hot water. Now add it to the butter mixture and watch it fizz. make sure you combine the ingredients well.
  4. Now pour the mixture into the large bowl that contains the flour, sugar, coconut and oats. Mix well.

  7. Once cooked, allow to cool for about five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  1. You do not need to use the mixture all in one go. If you don't want them to be eaten in one go, simply divide the finished mixture into two, cook half and store the other half in an airtight container, in the fridge.
  2. The mixture should keep for up to four days, after that, you're on your own.

Measuring Out Golden Syrup can often be a little bit tricky. But if you lightly grease your spoon with a little oil, you will discover that your golden syrup will just slide off the spoon, into the pan. 


When cooking a recipe, I often find the more pictures the better. That is until I get the finished product, when I then think, why does that not look like that?

      Hi, Chantelle,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment.

      I normally find quick and easy recipes can be so tasty. Coconuts bring back lots of memories, especially ones of eating it on the beach in Phuket. Yum!


  • These look and sound so scrumptious. I love coconut but don’t tend to bake with it often as hubby really doesn’t care for it. I think I shall have to give these a whirl though!

      Hi, Angela.

      Thank you for leaving your comment. I too am a fan of coconut, with an all time favourite recipe being Coconut and Banana cake. These biscuits are quick and easy to make and I suggested, you can also cook them in batches. I hope you enjoy them.


  • I have been discovering so many things that are made with coconut or coconut oil. It’s like the new olive oil and is even tastier! These look really good and I bet if you tweaked the recipe a bit you could get them down to about a point a piece with weight watchers. I too love weight watchers and it’s always my diet to go to when I want to lose some pounds. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with #foodpornthursdays! Hope to see you again Thursday!

      Hi, Trista.

      I’ll have to try tweaking it because they were nice!

      I’ve managed to keep the weight off for fourteen years but unfortunately, I have just reached the ‘will return if I go over ##stone (all those cream tea’s in Cornwall) weight. Although this is still a stone lighter, I felt very unhealthy and promised myself never to be that weight again.

      I’ve now been back two weeks and lost six pounds. I will definitely be back on #foodpornthursdays now both boys are at school full time, but the cakes might need to be swapped with something healthy, just for the time being at least!

      Thank you for taking the time to comment hosting #foodpornthursdays
