The large box of honey almond kelloggs cornflakes was sitting on my side board for days. It landed up at my home purely by accident ! The kids even ended up opening it ,simply because their hands could not be without doing otherwise….Sighhhh ! After a couple of days it suddenly dawned on me to make a batch of cornflake cookies. Since I wanted to send some to a vegetarian friend ,they had to be eggless ! That had me pausing momentarily ,as I did not have an eggless cornflake cookie recipe in my recipe book. With hard pressed for time ,to thumb through cookbooks ,I turned to the ever present ‘know it all’ aka Google ! I was directed to the blog of Sharmilee Jayaprakash . The visuals on her website, for this eggless cookie, were absolutely stunning and of course I wanted to make it straight away !
The deviations that I did in this cookie recipe are small ,it’s just my way of cooking where I prefer the use of whole grain flours and sugars wherever possible. Since there was already an inherent sweetness in the honey almond flakes ,I added less of the demerrera sugar. The flaked almonds add a nice nutty taste. If I were to try this recipe again with regular cornflakes,I would definitely add some flaked almonds to the batter. They are positively yummy ! The cornflakes were just partially crushed ,I did not powder them finely in the blender as per Sharmi’s recipe. I kinda like a chunkier look with bits of flakes poking out and the odd edge curled and baked dark golden here and there ! .The cookies turned out really good and it’s great to share a recipe not only of a fellow food blogger but a fellow Coimbatorean as well !!! 😀
Do try this easy recipe,it’s Christmas eve,you need to set out milk and cookies for cuddly Father Christmas, don’t you ?! 😉
