About this recipe: When I was growing up, my granny taught me how to make these special bites. They are super-easy and really delicious. Serve them on their own or with a cup of tea or coffee.


Makes: 60 

  • 4 egg whites
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 85g corn flakes
  • 75g sweetened desiccated coconut
  • 60g walnuts, chopped

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 120 C / Gas 1/2. Line baking trays with parchment paper or lightly grease.
  2. Beat the egg whites in a bowl with an electric mixer until they form stiff peaks. Gradually beat in the sugar, adding about 2 tablespoons at a time. Beat in the salt and vanilla extract until the mixture is glossy and holds its shape. Gently and lightly use a rubber spatula to fold the corn flakes, coconut and walnuts into the meringue. Gently run the spatula through the centre of the bowl, then around the sides of the bowl, repeating until fully incorporated. Drop the mixture by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking trays.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are very lightly browned and set, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely before removing with a metal spatula; warm cookies are very fragile.

Sweetened desiccated coconut

If only unsweetened desiccated coconut can be found, add a little more sugar to taste.
