Corn Flake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Corn Flake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are just the best, aren’t they? I’m sure we’ve all baked innumerable batches of those sweet vanilla cookies studded with rich chocolate chips. While I do love a classic chocolate chip cookie, it’s fun to mix things up a bit every now and then.

These little cookies certainly do that! The addition of corn flakes to the cookie dough adds an unexpected sweetness and a lovely crunch that will have you reaching for another.

Corn Flake Chocolate Chip Cookies

We really loved this fun twist on a classic. They’re a bit sweeter than their traditional counterparts, so I like making them on the small side versus giant cookies. You’ll get plenty of flavor and crunch in one little cookie!

Corn Flake Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the milk and vanilla.
  4. Reduce mixer speed to low. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Stir in the corn flakes and chocolate chips.
  5. Using a tablespoon of dough at a time, form the dough into balls. The dough will be crumbly, but should hold together when pinched. You may need to squeeze the dough tightly to form them.
  6. Place the cookies on the prepared pan, leaving about 2 inches between each. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Cool the cookies on the pans for 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
