  • 110 g salted butter (1 stick)
  • 115 g sugar (½ cup +1 tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 60 g rolled oats (½ cup)
  • 115 g quick cook oats (1 ¼ cups)
  • 115 g plain flour (¾ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 50 g macadamia nut halves (⅓ cup) roughly chopped
  • 150 g white chocolate chunks (1 cup)


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a small saucepan and heat gently until the butter has melted and the ingredients have combined.
    110 g salted butter, 115 g sugar, 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • In a large bowl mix together the oats, flour and bicarb. Pour in the melted butter mixture and stir until well combined. Leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  • After 10 minutes, the mixture will have cooled a little, but will still be warm. Stir in the nuts and most of the chocolate chunks - you may need to use your hands to get them incorporated. As the mixture will still be warm, the chocolate chunks will melt a little, but not completely. Roll the mixture into balls - you should get about 12. Place the balls onto a lined baking tray. Press the reserved chocolate chunks into the top of the balls.

  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown - you'll want to take them out when they still look slightly underbaked as they will continue cooking as they cool.


I used golden caster sugar but you could use regular caster sugar or even granulated sugar.
