These perfectly delicious macadamia and oat biscuits are a great substitute to feed the grandkids after school when you don’t want to hand them anything too unhealthy. While they still have an addictive flavour that will satisfy the sweet tooth, this is also a great way to sneak in some healthy nuts into the mix!

While this recipe is definitely hard to fault, if you want to add a bit more sweetness and texture to the snack, try adding in some dried cranberries right before you bake them and they’ll come out with a whole new flavour! Yum!


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour, sifted
  • 2/3 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup macadamias, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon bi carb soda


  1. Preheat oven to 170C. Place oats, flour, coconut, sugar and macadamias in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and set aside.
  2. Place golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over medium heat and heat until melted and combined. Stir bi carb soda into 1 tablespoon hot water. Add to the golden syrup mixture (it will bubble). Pour mixture into oats and stir until combined.
  3. Place tablespoons of mixture onto baking trays lined with baking paper and press down slightly, allowing room for spreading.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
