Do you love cookies? Then, you should try this Cornflake Cookies!

I made these crunchy, delicious buttery cookies which became an addictive snack for my kids. They are nutritious, healthy and easy to bake. Why not have a go? Happy Baking!

Crunchy, Delicious and Addictive Cookie

I love our local Nestle brand, the original cornflakes without added honey or sugar. It may taste a little bland but when I mix them with fresh chocolate milk, this breakfast cereal tasted AWESOME.

Another way to indulge ourselves with cornflakes is to turn them into crunchy and delightful melt in the mouth cookies coated with crushed cornflakes.

Yes, these Cornflake cookies are REALLY, REALLY crunchy, delicious and addictive.

Cornflake Cookies Contribution

I found this cornflake cookie recipe from the back of the Nestle cornflake box packaging. I love trying out different cookie recipes provided free from cornflake box. It was an enjoyable cookie baking with different ingredients but I do try my best to follow the cornflake cookie recipe as closely as possible.

I modified the recipe in order to reduce the fats and sweetness in my cookies. Anyway, they still turned out crunchy, delicious and the buttery taste was great!

Although the original recipe required more oil, I replaced it with butter, lighter in weight and gives buttery flavor.

Sugar content was originally castor sugar 100g but I had reduced it to 80g of icing sugar instead.
