Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease biscuit tray/s.
In a medium bowl, stir together the rolled oats, flour, almonds and sugar. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. When butter has melted, remove from heat and stir in baking soda, golden syrup and boiling water.
Stir the warm mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Place the dough 3cm apart on the biscuit tray and flatten slightly.
Bake in the preheated oven 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Remove from tray to cool on wire racks.
