Easiest Christmas Cookie Recipe Ever!  These come together so quickly and easily and you probably cannot eat only one! Great for cookie platters or holiday gifting!


3 egg whites

¼ tsp (1.25 ml) salt

½ tsp (2.5ml) vanilla extract

¾ cup (75g) confectioners’ sugar, sifted

2 cups (475ml) cornflakes

8 oz (230g) package of dark chocolate chips

1 cup (240ml) sweetened coconut flakes

½ cup (75g) chopped pecans or walnuts


Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine the egg whites, salt and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form. Slowly add the sugar gradually until stiff and satiny.

Fold in the chocolate chips, cornflakes, unsweetened coconut and nuts. Scoop out batter with a 2-inch cookie scoop onto cookie sheet.

Bake 18-20 minutes until set and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly. These are really good served warmed! Or allow to cool completely and package up for gifting!


  • Egg whites should be stiff and satiny before folding in the chocolate chips and other mix-ins.
  • You’ll know the whites are ready because they will hold a stiff peak on the tip of your whisk
  • You can swap the dark chocolate chips for semi-sweet or milk chocolate. But you may then want to reduce the confectioner’s sugar to 1/2 cup so the cookies are not too sweet.
