Crunchy Munchy Cornflakes Atta Cookies

crunchy munchy cornflakes cookies
Cookies, cookies everywhere, but not an unhealthy ingredient here!

Yes, I am again talking of healthy cookies. Somebody asked can cookies be healthy? I said no. But if you love cookies and cannot avoid these bakes, it is a good idea to switch to healthy ingredients to bake a set of healthy cookies.

I am sure the batch with no maida (white flour) would be healthier and tastier than its refined flour version.


  • If you love crunchy bites, try this cookie recipe.
  • If you love to indulge in guilt-free eating during tea time, try this batch.
  • If you think whole wheat cookies cannot taste as good as maida ones, you ought to give this healthy cookie recipe a try.
  • If you love cornflakes, you are in for some fun munching on this crunchy batch.

The secret to the crunchy munchy cookies lies in keeping cornflakes unpowdered.
You'll be greatly surprised to find that you can create a baking marvel or a best tea-time accompaniment with this recipe.

So what are you waiting for?

Give kids and family a surprise with this batch of healthy atta cookies loaded with cornflakes to add crunchiness.


I wasn't too find of cornflakes until I decided to experiment with them. Getting inspiration from a friend (Hetal Kamdar)'s cornflakes cookies, I decided to take my cookie making journey further - this time with whole wheat flour and cornflakes. What I ended up making has become history now - tastiest ever crunchy munchy cookies!

This is another healthy take on cookies :) I am sure you will love these crunchy bites

Ingredients:

1 cup wheat flour
1 cup corn flakes
1/4 cup powdered sugar (more or less depending on your taste)
