I don’t know where I first tried these quick easy treats or where the recipe came from, but I do know that since I have been an adult I have made many batches of these and my kids and I enjoy them. I like the fact that although they have light corn syrup in them, they also have peanut butter and corn flakes in them so they are a healthier snack option than candy or snackcakes.
These snacks are called cookies, but I just consider them an easy snack that has some nutrional value to them and that are a food that I can make from items that I keep in the pantry at all times, so whenever the kids ask for them I can throw a batch together. The entire process probably takes less than 15 minutes and is an easy recipe to clean up too. They require four steps so it is a simple recipe that even kids can make on their own. These sweet, chewy treats are a nice afternoon snack or a nice snack to add to the lunchbox.
