  5. Put the mixture in the fridge for a few minutes.

Have a wonderful breakfast! As I like to say, it’s the most important meal of the day… Enjoy!

  1. That sounds really good, but the order of it was weird 😮 I’m used to all the dry ingredients beeing added at the same time, like the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder, and then the cornflakes and oatmeal, and lastly the chocolate. The sugar, butter and eggs are like I’m used to.
    But I guess the most important thing is the outcome, and they do look much better than mine! 🙂


    1. Yes, I know, more or less like muffins, right?! I guess you could mix the dry ingredients and apart the other ones, but I think that doing so makes the cookies crunchier and with a lovely salty taste… if this makes sense! 🙂


      1. I’m not really sure, but I think baking powder is what we mostly use here in Norway. And my cookies allways get crunchy 😦


      2. I’ll try to give them a go during the summer! Luckily your recipe is in grams and not cups (as we don’t use for measurements here in Norway). What is “00 flour”?
