Because I didn’t want to pay the price for store bought cornflakes, I thought if I could find a recipe for it, I would try to make it.

I finally took the time to try out Homemade Healthy Alternative Cornflakes tonight.

I did find it too thick and perhaps could have added more liquids and split the mixture into 2 trays instead of one.

This recipe would be good for Taco chips without the sugar and chopped nuts. Another on the list to make.

Ingredients: 1 serving

1 cup Cornmeal

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon water

chopped nuts, about 3 tablespoonsful


  • Mix cornmeal, sugar & salt in a bowl.
  • Add 3/4 cup of water and mix till it is like a pancake mix.
  • Add more water if needed, by the teaspoon or tablespoon.
  • Pour the mixture onto a baking tray with baking paper on it.
  • Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top of the mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 175ºC (350ºF).
  • Remove tray from oven.
  • Reduce oven heat to 130ºC (250ºF)
  • Break the baked corn into bite-sized pieces. (I just a pizza cutter to roll over while it was hot before breaking it by hand when it had cooled down to a more manageable heat)
  • Bake for 40 minutes.


Tried having it for breakfast – very chewy and disappointing. I will need to try and see if mixing it into a more liquid form would get it closer to the thickness & texture of what the store-bought ones taste like.

On the other side, it could probably be a good taco chips except you do need to keep it once it has cooled down before it goes soft.
