Crunchy Oatilicious Cookies!

If you are looking for a new cookie recipe, look no further. This is an oldie but a goodie, packed with flavour, and perfect with a coffee.

Similar to an New Zealand favourite, the ANZAC, this cookie is a little chewy which I really enjoy.


  • 150g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup flour

Melt the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar in a pot – large enough to mix all of the ingredients.

Mix in coconut, oats and flour until combined. Using a measuring spoon, roll tablespoons into balls. Place on a baking paper line tray; allow some room for spreading. Flatten with the back of a spoon.

Bake for 10 minutes at 180°c, o until lightly browned.

Cool on a cooling rack.

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
