I promise people's eyes will roll to the back of their head when they try these! This recipe was passed on to me from a very nice visit to one of my mom's best friends; it was her daughter's invention. So there you go!
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup safflower oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 cups flour (1/2 wheat, 1/2 white is fine)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 1⁄2 cups oats (or Multi-Grain Oats)
- 3⁄4 cup coconut
- 6 ounces chocolate chips (or carob, white chocolate)
- 4 cups corn flakes or 4 cups similar favorite crunchy cereal
- In a bowl the size of a bucket, throw in every ingredient.
- Wearing thin plastic gloves, mix it all up with your hands, until blended, without smashing the cereal or chips.
- Place cookie-sized balls on greased baking sheets.
- Press to flatten.
- Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.
Excellent recipe! This makes a lot more than 36 cookies (I got 96!), but since they all disappeared quickly, I don't think I will cut this recipe in half .. thanks
i have twice tried to make cookies w/ cornflakes and both time they turn soggy and chewy and not very fun to eat. this cookie was no exception.. the cookie was good but the flakes were not. i subbed walnuts for the coconut and threw in some reeses pieces. that was really good i really liked the texture the walnuts gave it. i also used wheat flour. the cookie tasted pretty good besides the tough chewiness of the flakes.. maybe that is how it is suppose to be and i just dont like it. i was expecting a crunch. thanks for a new exp.
These were great. I made them and sent some to Iraq for a coworker who is there and took some to work with me for everyone to enjoy and they did just that. Thank you for a great recipe.
