Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180°C, fan160°C. Melt the butter and syrup gently in a small saucepan.

Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and stir into the butter and syrup mixture.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, coconut and oats.  Make a well in the centre and stir in the butter mixture. When thoroughly combined, place dessert spoonfuls onto a well greased baking sheet and place in the centre of the preheated oven to bake. Cook for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.

After 2 or 3 minutes, remove carefully from the baking sheet and transfer onto a wire cooling rack.
