Prep: 30 minutesCook: 12 minutesTotal: 32 minutes

Thick and chewy cookies covered in crunchy corn flakes.


  • 115 grams (1/2 cup / 1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 210 grams (1 and 1/2 cups) plain flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 75 grams (1/2 cup) chocolate chips
  • 45 grams (1 and 1/2 cups) Cornflakes


  1. Line two baking trays with baking or parchment paper. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until combined and creamy.
  3. Add vanilla and egg and beat briefly until combined. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until a soft cookie dough forms. Stir through chocolate chips.
  4. In a separate bowl, add Cornflakes and squeeze them to crush them slightly using your hands.
  5. Scoop balls of dough (roughly 1.5 tablespoons each) and then roll them in the Cornflakes, pressing the Cornflakes into the cookie dough using your hands.
  6. Place cookie dough balls onto your prepared trays, leaving room for the cookies to spread out.
  7. Bake for approximately 12-13 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Butter: If you are using salted butter, omit the salt included in the recipe. 

Chocolate chips: You can replace the chocolate chips with sultanas if you prefer. Or you can use half chocolate chips, half sultanas. 

Storage: Once completely cooled, keep these Cornflake Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. 

Make ahead: Yes. You can make the cookie dough and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days in advance. However, only roll the cookie dough in Cornflakes prior to baking. You can also freeze the cookie dough (without the Cornflakes) and simply thaw, roll in Cornflakes and bake as per the instructions below.
