Flaky crunchy yet melting, wholewheat cornflakes cookies are aromatic too! My family loved this and over any other cookies I made until now. They were very soft and each bite was layered with the goodness of wholewheat and oats. I’ve used honey almonds cornflakes, but you can use anyone that you like!
Ideally this comes out very well if you knead the dough with hand for long but I used food processor and just gave final touch by hand. I’ve also replaced butter with olive oil and trust me there wasn’t any change in the taste – it tastes the same as cookies made with butter. The ingredients are simple and readily available in our pantry. I’ve used mixed flours like whole wheat, oat bran and little refined wheat flour. You can use it in any ratio of your preference.
▪ 1/2 cup wholewheat flour
▪ 1/4 cup oats bran
▪ 1/4 cup refined wheat flour
▪ 1/2 honey almond cornfakes
▪ < 1/2 cup sugar
(Adjust sugar depending on the kind of cornflakes you use, I used less than 1/2 cup because of honey cornflakes)
▪ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
▪ 1/2 cup olive oil
▪ Preheat oven to 350 F /180 C
▪ Dry roast wholewheatflour, oats bran and refined wheat flour together on medium heat until you get a nice aroma (about 5-8 minutes)
▪ In an electric beater or food processor, mix the oil, baking powder and sugar for about 5 mintues or alternatively with hand
▪ Add the cooled roasted flours, cornflakes and knead the dough.
▪ You should not need more oil, still if you feel it’s dry you can add little oil.
▪ Once the dough is ready, make medium sized balls and flatten using rolling pin or hands and thin out almost half an inch.
▪ Cut the desired shape, I made big circle cookies. ▪ Sprinkle some cornflakes on top.
▪ Bake on glazed butter sheet for 20 minutes.
▪ Keep a check after 15 minutes as baking time differs from oven to oven.
▪ Allow it to cool in oven for another 8-10 minutes.
▪ Take it out and enjoy it warm or let it cool!
This tastes divine with lovely aroma of roasted flours, the crunchiness of almonds and cornflakes and the flaky texture!
