Crunchy cornflake cookie

One of the mums on my FB page wanted a crunchy cookie for her daughter who will not eat most biscuits or cakes. She does however, love blueberries so I tried to combine the two!

It is crunchy, it does contain blueberries (but those could be subbed for other fruit or even dried fruit or choc chips).

It can easily be GF and/or DF if needed.

Delicious too!

Recipe – Crunchy cornflake cookie

125 gm butter (or DF spread)
25-50 gm sugar (this is still quite low sugar so add more to taste, if you wish)
1 egg
50 gm blueberries (or other chopped fruit/dried fruit/choc chips)
¾ – 1 cup flour – start with ¾ cup and add more if needed (can use GF SR flour)
1 tsp baking powder (omit if using SR flour)
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ cup cornflakes (can use GF)
½ cornflakes to roll in (optional)


Heat oven to 160˚
Cream butter and sugar
Add egg and mix thoroughly
Fold in berries, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cornflakes
Form into cookie shapes (I used my hands as they kind of needed to be squeezed into shape)
Roll in cornflakes
Press down on a silicon tray (or greased baking tray)
Bake 20-25 mins
