Crunchy Nut Cornflakes’ Cookies


We made the mistake to buy the cereal Crunchy Nut from Kellogg’s – I’m not really saying that it’s not good, it just wasn’t to our taste. But it’s a shame to throw away unspoiled food so I made these and some other cookies, using this particular cereal. I’m sure using regular Kellogg’s Cornflakes is even better, since I like them better, but here goes:

175 g melted butter
200 g Cornflakes, crunched with your hands
2 dl oatmeal
1 dl raisins
2 dl self-rising flour
1 dl sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp desiccated coconut (I simply had that much left in the bag, that’s way so little)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar (again, that’s all that was left, hence the odd quantity)
3 eggs

Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan!) or 180°C. Mix the ingredients all together in a bowl, using a wooden spoon. Spoon small heaps of dough on the baking trays that have been lined with baking paper, perhaps 10 on each tray and the recipe makes up for about 40 cookies or so. Bake for about 10 minutes (I didn’t measure it actually!) or until the cookies are golden brown as the ones on the following picture.

And by the way, I thought they were quite alright and my son (8) who’s very picky when it comes to cakes, cookies and the like, thought they were fantastic.
