Cornflakes Cookies without Flour Take 2


























With the advice from youfei, I used honey instead of sugar to help it bind.  I added dried cranberries and walnuts to make it healthier but this is not a healthy cookies because it is packed with butter.  The butter made it really fragrant and when baked, it was really crispy.  This recipe is for those who seeks it, enjoy!  The sweetness is just nice, not overly sweet.

You can add any dried fruits, roasted nuts, chips for baking or anything you can think of  to make it uniquely yours.  Now I know what to make to bring it for Evy's classmates, the chocolate version would be ideal for little kids.  Without nuts, just raisin and cornflakes so all kids can enjoy it.  ^o^






Ingredients:

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter (113g)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey (you can add 1 Tbsp. of sugar for extra crunch)
  • 4 cups packed cornflakes, lightly crushed
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped


Method:

1.  Microwave butter and honey until melted, about 2 minutes.

2.  Add in the rest of the ingredients.  Stir to mix well.

3.  Spoon teaspoon full into mini paper cups and bake in preheated 350'F for 10 minutes.

4.  Let cool completely before serving.

~Yield about 50 mini baking cups.

I'm gonna try this if I have time, coz I think I have all the ingredients except walnut. Haha I love butter, unhealthy never mind as long as yummy :P

This is easy and yummy.

LaShaunta said...

Actually, raisins and dried cranberies really aren't healthy, either. They consist of 90 % sugar, so nutritionists sometimes refer to them as 'candy'. They're good though...

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks bits of taste. :)

Haha noobcook, actually you can omit the walnut if you don't have it. This is very easy to make.

Yes, very easy to make Sonia.

Thanks for the info. LaShaunta, actually healthy as in it is good for us especially raisin.

Hi Lalaland,
Not sure, but I just tried one I made a week earlier and it is still crispy. The cookies I made here can keep a long time.

Hi,

i tried this cookies today. Indeed need to cut down the butter. But i have a problem, my cornflakes don't stick together. But should i do?

Thank you for sharing this recipe :) Enjoy reading your blog :)

Hi Geraldine,

I also had the trouble of all the cornflakes sticking together. The one I did, some cornflakes would fall out. So, place it in a mini baking cup is recommended.
