Andy Waters' Coconut cookie crumble is an ideal recipe if kids are happy to get their hands all gooey.
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180°C, fan 160°C
Line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper – see if the kids can help laying this down.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, coconut and oats, blending well - messy, floury kids’ hands should be the sign of a job well done. Just make sure their hands are washed before getting stuck into the mix.
In a small pan, melt the butter and golden syrup over a low heat.
In a small bowl, dissolve the bicarbonate soda in 2tbsp of boiling water. Combine with the golden syrup and butter.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and pour in the warm golden syrup mixture, mixing well until it forms a dough.
Take a heaped teaspoon of the mixture and roll into balls. Place onto the baking tray and press down slightly to flatten. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up - little hands will make light work of rolling the dough into balls - and then flatten down into cookies.
Place into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the biscuits are golden.
Once baked, remove and place straight onto a wire rack to cool before serving.
