Sweet Treats, Yummy Recipes

Still Running With a Case of the Lazy January’s : Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies


1/ Place the sugar and agave nectar in a small saucepan and bring to the boil stirring

2/ Remove from heat and immediately stir in the peanut butter and the Tablespoon of butter

3/  Place the cornflakes into a large bowl before pouring in the mixture

4/ Give it a REALLY good stir through

5/ Onto a lined tray place balls of mixture (about 1/2 a desert spoon full) and flatten into cookies.  This mix makes 20 small cookies or 10 big ones

6/ They now just need to be left to harden (you can eat them now but they aren’t really crunchy until they’ve completely cooled).  Eat them as is if you like but I love them with a sprinkling of cinnamon and/or a sprinkling of sea salt.  The sweet and salty is delicious!
A drizzle of chocolate followed by the sea salt is heavenly too!

I popped some crunchy peanuts on top of mine this time around.  Maybe avoid the extra nuts if feeding to under 5’s if you’re concerned about choking.

  1. Sort of reminds me of rice krispie treats but more decadent!

    Agave Nectar by “Groovy Food”! Wow man…far out….

    And look at your with the peanut shells on the side. I think you missed your calling, you could have been a food photographer!

    1. Definitely nice and simple like Rice Krispie treats. Equally yummy but we can almost convince ourselves that they aren’t so bad for us by using the “healthy” option of Agave Nectar (if only my waistline had gotten the memo).

      Oh my I didn’t even notice the brand name! lol

      I’m not sure about that but I am making a concerted effort to improve I’ve been reading some tips for food photography online….I think my biggest problem living in cloudy, gloomy London is light. I took these in the brightest part of the day with a big open window behind…still it wasn’t light enough! eek. I think I need to invest in a lamp or two and get a better setup for consistently well lit photos. Learning slowly but surely!
