Most people are probably currently trying to behave themselves and stick to their New Year’s resolutions, but I am not one of them. So for those of you who are, I apologize in advance for tempting you with these chewy and delicious Peanut Butter Cornflakes No Bake Cookies.

Seriously, I know, it seems completely unfair of me to dangle such a recipe in front of you while you’re trying to be good, but these are just too good not to share! Like addictively good!

Peanut Butter Cornflakes No Bake Cookies are an easy and sweet treat! Everyone will love these chewy, sweet, and salty cookies that are ready in no time at all!

I’m a huge fan of no bake cookies, my mom made them all the time when we were growing up and I continue to make them in tons of different flavors today, like my Irish Cream No Bake Cookies or my Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies.

Traditionally, I make my no bake cookies with an oatmeal base, but for this recipe I decided to try something a little different, Corn Flakes! Not overly sweet, this boring breakfast cereal pairs with the creamy peanut butter to create a wonderfully sweet and salty cookie!

They’re also SUPER chewy and my husband loves them even more than the classics. In fact, I packaged most of the batch up for him to take into work and they never made it because he keeps stealing cookies out of the container and there’s no longer enough left to share!

This recipe is made with just 5 ingredients: peanut butter, corn flakes, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. They’re made right on the stove top and are ready in minutes, and I promise the whole family won’t be able to get enough of them!

  2. Love your recipes..

  3. What is corn syrup? Sorry for the daft question, I’m in the uk

  4. Add some coconut and use crunchy peanut butter. Totally delicious!

  5. Is white Karo syrup the same thing as corn syrup?

  7. I have made these cookies for years but never cooked the peanut butter and they are delicious!

  8. Can I use natural peanut butter??

  9. I made this recipe today and it tasted really good until the cookies stuck to the wax paper and it was extremely hard/impossible to get off. Maybe it’s best to use cooking spray or use another surface?

  10. OMG sooooo good and very easy

  11. My grandmother cooked in the school lunch room when I was in school and she made these, believe me it was a long time ago. Back then they had to use what the government gave them to use. Thanks for the memory.

  12. omg…wonder if they work with chex cereal??? I am going to give this a try!

  13. I make these every Christmas. I cook the mixture in the microwave. Then add green food coloring. I pat each one down & add some red cinnamon pieces. The cornflakes look like leaves.

  14. Made these today, and it was so good that my sister and I just started eating it right out of the mixing bowl!! Amazing cookies, even my mother who is extremely picky about her food enjoyed it. :) thanks!!

  15. Thank you. I look forward to making these.

  16. Could you use another cereal? I have lot of cereals to use up

    • I like to make this recipe as written, but feel free to try other cereals. Let me know how it turns out.

  17. Do I use frosted or unfrosted (plain) corn flakes?

  18. Can these be frozen

    • I have not tried to freeze them, but if you decide to try it please let me know how it turns out!

  19. Can i use maple syrup instead of corn syrup?

  20. How well does this work with chunky peanut butter? Would adding lightly salted peanuts be better?

  21. My dad wants a molasses flavor in the cookies. Can you add molasses to the mixture and it still turn out good?

    Thank you

  22. I have made these for years, but I use half Corn Flakes and half Rice Krispies. I have also put the mixture onto a cookie sheet and cut them like a bar cookie. No matter which way you prepare them, they are so addictive.

  23. to make the bar cookie, did you pat down the mixture on the cookie sheet or just put it on top until it cooled off.

  24. My mom made these when we were kids. She called them Energy Bars! Sugar content is high, but they are ohhhhh soooooo good!
