Nestum Cereal is one of my childhood favourite, I practically grow up on that! If you are from Singapore or Malaysia you would probably be able to relate to that. It is very much like the breakfast oats the is popular with westerners, only this is much MUCH nicer. These cookies are inspired by that yummy breakfast meal. I used condensed milk as the main sweetener for these cookies and no egg was used. As such, these cookies has a crunchier texture much like a biscuit. And the best part of these cookies is that, you can eat the cookie dough raw! So you really do not have to worry about under baking it. Actually, under-baking it would produce a softer texture.
Ingredients (Makes about 3 dozen cookies)
- 125g unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp baking powder*
- 1/4 tsp salt*
- 1.5 cups all purpose flour*
- 1 cup Milo
- 1 cup Nestum Cereal
Mix baking powder, salt, Milo, and flour together until VERY well combined.
Cream your butter and sugar together.
Add condensed milk and vanilla extract and mix well.
Pour in flour mixture in 3 parts, and mix well.
Isn’t the batter sexy?!
Fold in the nestum cereal.
Drop about 1 tbsp size ball of dough onto lined cookie sheet.
Use a fork to flatten the dough. It doesn’t really spread much while baking.
Bake for 8-10 mins on 180*C.
I did 10.. Which turned out a little harder. I’d recommend 8 minutes.
Let cool on try for 5 mins before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
