No Bake Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies (免烤酥脆玉米片曲奇)



All these while, i am blogging traditional cookies and never really blog a trendy cookie.. In order to diversify my cookies recipe, I have decided to blog this rather trendy cookies commonly served during Chinese New Year..


Most kids will like this cookie as it is prepared using corn flakes. As contrast to other melt in the mouth cookies, is a crispy cookies full of cereal flavour.


I am not new to this cookies as my nieces like to prepare this during Chinese New Year. Most of the recipes in the net need to bake this simple cookies for about 10 minutes and I have purposely chosen one recipe that is no-bake version. It was prepared using peanut butter instead of normal butter.. It is a real simple easy to remember recipe. Variations are many including the nuts and the type of breakfast cereals to be used. I have added some sunflower seeds to the cookies and I loved the crunchiness of both the nuts and the corn flakes.


For those who do not have oven at home, this is one cookie that you can try.. Trust me, not only kids love the cookies, even adults like my wife love it very much .. lol.



Servings: About 24 cookies


  • 45 –60 grams of corn flake 
  • 45 grams of peanut butter
  • 45 grams of castor sugar
  • 45 grams of honey or corn syrup
  • Some small paper cups




  • In a non stick pan, melt the peanut butter, honey or syrup and castor sugar. Bring to boil under low heat. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until all the sugar dissolved. Off the heat, add in the corn flakes, stir until well mixed. While it is hot, put a teaspoon of corn flakes on the paper cups. Let it rest in the room temperature until it hardens. Once hardened, store in a air tight container.  (Note, if the cornflake is too big pieces, you can crush it into big pieces before using)



The family have finished the whole bottle of cookies within one day. It is easy to prepare and rather addictive. If you are concern about the sweetness, you can either use more corn flakes or reduce the castor sugar by 10%. Remember that you can always add in some nuts to the recipes, be it walnut, sunflower seeds, pine seeds, almond or others..


Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.

    • You are most welcome. If you do not like honey, you can use corn syrup or all using white sugar. Sugar when melted will become syrup that can bind the corn flakes together. Can use melted chocolate too..

  1. Hi Kenneth, if use melted chocolate is it means just replace peanut butter with the chocolate? The rest of the ingredient and method remain unchanged?

  2. weeee.. no bake is cool especially when we run out of cookies but need more. i love the smell and crunch of cornflakes. i will definitely add in more cornflakes for that extra.crunch and ur addition of pumpkin seeds makes it even all the better.

    thanks for linking to beat recipes shifu gor gor… keekee

  3. Hi, I just tried the recipe. After it’s done, the cornflakes is not very crispy (almost a bit soggy) and it doesn’t bind very well.
    What am I doing wrong?
