We all hit those days where we realise a bit too late that we actually don’t have enough stuff to pop in the kids’ lunch boxes – oops!
Don’t panic though – just keep a box of cornflakes in the pantry so you can whip up a batch of these yummy cornflake cookies in less than half an hour.
There’s really nothing better than delicious, still-warm cookies in the lunch box!

Cornflake cookies ingredients
- 2 cups sifted plain flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 250g margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups cornflakes (I find Kellogg’s brand hold their crunch best)
- ½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 180°C and line your baking trays with baking paper
- Beat margarine and sugar using an electric beater until light and fluffy.
- Add eggs and vanilla, beat well until completely combined.
- Sift together flour and baking powder and add to the bowl. Beat slowly to incorporate (or risk being showered in flour!).
- Add cornflakes and chocolate chips (if using) and mix well.
- Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto lined baking trays and bake for about 10 minutes or until the edge of the biscuit turns golden.
- Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely – if they last that long!
- This recipe yields approximately 30 biscuits and full original recipe credit goes to the Kellogg’s team for this family favourite – though it appears they don’t claim fame to the chocolate chip addition!
