Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In a stand or hand mixer on medium speed, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar for 4-5 minutes or until color turns pale and mixture becomes fluffy.
Lower speed and add golden syrup or honey, eggs, vanilla, and coconut extract.
Once combined well, slowly add flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and 1 cup of coconut flakes.
Add scoops (about the size of a ping pong ball) to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Make sure cookies are a couple inches apart before place in oven. Sprinkle tops of unbaked cookies with remaining coconut flakes.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
