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!

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!

  1. Hi,
    Just wanted you to know that I love the Cornflake Candy recipe. Have been making this for years at home and for co-workers. I used all the ingredients and added one more thing, coconut!! It gives it great flavor as well as the peanut butter. Glad I found this recipe with you because I lost my other recipe. Going to make some for Christmas or New Years. Thanks again.

  2. This is a wonderfully easy recipe and brought back lots of memories for my husband. I will say that I think they would be better if I’d had a less natural peanut butter in hand. I’m going to try it with good ole fashioned jif in the next couple weeks and see if the texture comes out a little better but aside from that and that’s a me issue these were fantastic!5 stars
