Weird but Yummy Malted Corn Flakes

You might think I'm terribly quirky, but give this a shot... you won't regret it! I made this today afternoon when I felt like a quick and nutritious afternoon snack. I wanted to try something I'd never tried before, so I put this together, and to be honest, I was almost shocked that it tasted so good! :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 4 -6 teaspoons plain instant malted milk powder (like Horlicks)
  • cold water or cold milk


  1. Mix the corn flakes and malted milk powder well in a cereal bowl, such that the powder covers most of the flakes.
  2. Some of it might settle at the bottom of the bowl, but don't worry.
  3. Add enough cold water or milk to cover and mix well; I use about 3/4 cup cold water.
  4. (Because you use cold water/milk, some of the malted milk powder might form lumps, but that makes it taste even better!) Grab a large spoon and eat immediately!

Anu, I think you are a very special person and not quirky. You are just TOO GREAT(to the power of infinity)!! As soon as I read this recipe, I knew I had to make it rightaway. It happened to be afternoon lunch time and since its Navratri and I'm fasting at night, I like to have something nutritive n healthy for lunch(veg only). I made this using Ovaltine milk powder, 3/4 cup non-fat milk and 1 cup corn flakes. I couldn't believe when I put in the 1st spoon in my mouth- yummy! :-) So simple a recipe and so DIVINE the taste! I've had 1 bowl and I wanted to have another n another n another n go on n on! :-) This recipe is great, really really G-R-E-A-T! Methinks, years later when we have our families and kids, and I ain't in a mood to cook, I'm going to pack my kids off to U! I can guarantee, they'll be having the most nutritive, healthy and yummy food in the world :-)

My kids loved this for their breakfast today. What a great idea. I never would have thought of it! We are using "Wheaties" cereal and 3 tsp. of Carnation Brand chocolate malted mix mixed with milk (up to half a bowl). I added the powdered mix and then the milk and mixed and then added the cereal and mixed it up! Thanks for a new breakfast idea!
