We can not keep our hands off these delicious little cookie clusters! I originally made a no bake cookie recipe with peanut butter and dark chocolate but wanted something slightly less involved. These babies are loaded with super simple ingredients like corn flakes, Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, corn syrup… and thats it!

What is cookie butter?

It is pure heaven 🤣 In all actuality, cookie butter is a spread, like peanut butter, that is sold at Trader Joe’s. It is made with oil, flour, sugar, and crushed Biscoff cookies. Cookie Butter is called a ‘speculoos’ cookie in Dutch, and you will see that word on the exterior of the container. It is delicious on crackers, toast, fruit, in scones…. pretty much anything! We love it in this no-bake cookie recipe!

Is there a substitute for corn syrup?

There are several alternatives you can use in place of corn syrup. Some of the options aren’t quite as thick, so it will change the overall consistency of the recipe. Some use a cane syrup, agave nectar, honey, or a brown rice syrup. Just be aware that some flavors, like honey, are fairly strong and can change the taste of a recipe as well.

How to make our Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter Cookies:

First, place a large skillet on a burner over medium heat. Completely mix and heat 1 cup of corn syrup and 3/4 cups of white sugar. Bring to a slight boil. I will take about 3-4 minutes for it to boil.

A skillet with sugar and corn syrup in it, before being stirred.

Once boiling, turn off burner and remove from heat. Mix in 1 cup of cookie butter. Mix until completely combined with the corn syrup and sugar.

The corn syrup mixture with cookie butter added to it.

Next, add all 5 cups of corn flakes to the mixture and completely stir. The mixture is pretty thick so take your time to make sure all the corn flakes are evenly coated with the yummy mixture.

The cookie butter mixture with the corn flakes added, and now all mixed up before being formed into cookies.

Last, with a spoon, drop about 1 1/2 tablespoons worth of cookie mixture onto wax paper and form into any shape you want…. I usually try for a round-look! You can use your fingers or the back of a greased spoon. The batter is pretty sticky!

The cookie mixture, formed into circles, cooling on a sheet of wax paper, on a baking sheet.

Allow cookies to cool for at least 15 minutes and then enjoy! You can store these on counter or in the refrigerator as long as they are sealed in an air-tight container. They remain fresh for up to 5 days!
