Cranberry Cornflakes Cookies:

This is a simple recipe that requires the usual supplies for baking cookies and a 100 grams of cornflakes that have been roughly crushed ( your little one is bound to love crushing the cornflakes!) and dried cranberries. Any kid will love this recipe and will be dying to take a bite while the cookies bake due to the sweet aroma that the crush cornflakes give off!

 They look a little wonky adding the fun factor to its look! They taste awesomely buttery, the cornflakes give them a nice crunch and the cranberries add a tangy flavor! What’s great about this recipe is that a little bit can go a long way as you can get many cookies out of a small mixture of the ingredients. So be prepared for your kids asking for more!

Benefits of Baking with your Kids

As mentioned earlier, cooking and baking with your kids is a fantastic way to get them to help at home, even if it’s just small tasks like mixing the batter for cookies or adding the ingredients. You teach them different skills such as measuring, counting, being organized, concentrating on the task at hand, etc. These skills will come in handy for the rest of their lives.

Another wonderful benefit of baking with kids is the bonding time you get. Working closely together and enjoying each other’s company are moments that hardly come by so it’s a great idea to make it a tradition to bake cookies, cakes and other treats with your kids while they’re still young. It will also give them cherished moments that they will never forget even after years!

Start getting more ideas for fun things to bake with kids and you and your kids can continue to bake delicious stuff. As they grow older, you can get more complex recipes and even get to bake them on their own under your supervision. Make wonderful memories of them with you in the kitchen and they will end up with a life-long passion for baking and cooking!
