For the Cookies
1 cup quick oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp boiling water
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp butter, melted
For the Ice-cream
1 pint (500 ml) good quality vanilla ice-cream

2/3 cup toasted coconut
Preheat the oven 350°.
Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
Place oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, chopped thyme and salt to a bowl and stir until combined.
In a small bowl combine the water and baking soda. In small sauce pan melt the butter over medium high. Take off the heat and add in the baking soda mixture and vanilla. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place 2 1/2 inches apart on the lined trays. Bake for 13-14 mins until golden. Allow to cool on a wire racks.
In a bowl combine the vanilla ice-cream (left out just to soften) or banana ice-cream with the toasted coconut and mix until well combined. Place back in the freezer to thicken. When ready scoop out onto cookies and top with another cookie for a sweet and salty sandwich treat.
