Special K Cookies ~ A healthy snack

Bored with your cereal and want something different for a breakfast snack? try these Healthy Special K cookies with a hint of coconut and some chewy raisins.  You don't have to be an expert to bake them, so try your hand at it even if you are totally new to baking. I chose to bake the cornflakes cookies, recipe picked by Priya and I modified it a bit to make it healthy and they were so yummy. Thanks Priya (Priya's Versatile Recipes) 

Recipe Source ~ slightly modified Baking: Commonsense by Murdoch  Books 
Makes ~ 12- 15 small-medium sized cookies

Ingredients

65grams Softened unsalted butter
1/4cup Sugar (i used light brown sugar)
1 Egg (lightly beaten)
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Black raisins (choice of nuts/raisins)
1/4 cup Dessicated coconut 
1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Cup flour- plain/ wheat (I used wheat flour/atta)
1 Cup Crushed Cornflakes (I used Special K)

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F, line two baking trays with parchment/ grease-proof paper. Take 23 bowls in the first one sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder, the second one crush the cornflakes and set aside.
  • In the third large bowl cream the butter and sugar using electric beater/ free stand beater until they turns light and fluffy. Add the egg, beating thoroughly and add the vanilla and beat until combined. Scrape through the sides of bowl to combine the entire mixture.
  • Combine the raisins, dessicated coconut and mix well with a wooden spoon. Fold the flour mixture with a metal/ wooden spoon and stir until the mixture is almost smooth.
  • Use your measuring tsp and grease it (make sure to grease hands), take a tsp size dough and roll it into a small ball and gently dab all the sides with the cornflakes mixture. Be gentle and don't press it too much and place it in the lined baking tray and slightly tap on top for it to sit well. Continue the same until you have made balls out of the entire dough, make sure that you space them atleast 1.5 inch space as they will spread during baking.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes until they turn golden brown. If you want your cookies to be crunchy bake for another 8 minutes.
  • Once baked cool completely in a cooking rack and arrange it in an air tightened box.
Tips 

- make sure you use butter at room temperature and sieve the flour to combine all dry ingredients
- taste the mixture to check for sugar level
- you can use your preferred flour (plain/wheat), i wanted it to be healthy so used wheat and brown sugar
- If you want your cookies to be crunchy bake for another 8 minutes
- the reason i have used a measuring spoon to take the dough is to get even sized cookies but if you can eye ball the quantity just skip that

Enjoy the great healthy cookies with a cup of tea/ coffee
