Coconut And Corn Flakes Cookies

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A deliciously soft-centred coconut cookie recipe that’s covered in a crunchy coating of crushed corn flakes – these cookies never last long in my home!

These cookies are so delicious! I made them on Sunday to freeze for school lunchboxes, but by Tuesday they were all gone – LOL!  Next time I will definitely make a double batch. coconut corn flake cookie biscuit recipe These coconut cookies have a super soft centre, and a crunchy corn flake outer. It’s a great recipe for using up the crumbs left at the bottom of the cornflake box. Soft coconut cookies with crunchy corn flakes I know we are Australian and we call cookies biscuits, but I feel like biscuits are what I buy in packages from the grocery store. Cookies for me are homemade treats I create for the family. Print
