Syrup Crunch Cookies

I saw these on one of my favourite blogs, the caked crusader and knew I had to make it and to make it soon. It contains most of my favourite ingredients and the perfect opportunity presented itself when we had a celebratory breakfast for a colleague who was getting married. I thought the cornflakes and oats would make it very 'breakfast-ty'! It's really more-rish and I had quite a few as they came out of the oven! Someone commented that it tastes like it should be part of 1 of your 5 a day but clearly it's not! I'm definitely making these again and again.
I'm off on a short summer break but will be back with more baking goodness soon :) 

250g unsalted butter
200g condensed milk
175g golden syruo
175g cornflakes
175g porridge oats
250g plain flour
100g custard powder
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • Preheat the oven to 180˚C
  • Line 2 large baking sheets with baking paper.
  • Place the butter, condensed milk and golden syrup in a large saucepan and heat gently.
  • Stir occasionally until the ingredients have melted and evenly combined; they should be runny.
  • In a separate bowl crush the cornflakes by hand – you don’t want them crumbed, just broken up a bit.
  • Stir in the oats, flour, custard powder and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mix in the saucepan.
  • Scoop heaped tablespoons onto the baking sheets, leaving a gap around the biscuits for expansion while baking. 
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  • Leave to cool, on their baking sheets, on a wire rack. They will be soft on leaving the oven but will firm up as they cool.


  1. Cookies for breakfast!!! I love how your brain works ;0)
    And if I could have cookies for breakfast I reckon I'd have these ones, they look and sound so tasty that they have my mouth watering.

  6. Yum I love syrup oaty biscuits, not made them for ages. They're so good when they're fresh out the oven :)

  7. The custard powder is such an unusual ingredient that I just have to try these, and soon!

  9. A condensed milk cookie that I can pass off as a breakfast-time treat? I love it! Reminds me of the little cornflake treats I used to have as a kid ..

  10. Ahh, thank you for this. I knew I'd seen them somewhere but couldn't remember where. I spent an age looking for them meaning to make some to take with us on holiday. Never mind, I can make them now - bookmarking this quickly before I lose it again.

  11. Sounds like a great breakfast cookie to me!
