Grandma’s Special K No Bake Cookies
Grandma’s Special K No Bake Cookies are absolutely addictive, with an irresistible mix of crunchy cereal flakes, sweet sugar and salty peanut butter!
I’m so in love with these childhood favorites. Not only are they incredibly tasty, but a major plus is how fast you can whip them up too – just a few minutes on the stovetop, then plop them down on some wax paper and let them harden (or don’t). As an added plus, there’s only 5 ingredients. Easy, delicious recipes like this one are my favorite!!
Grandma’s Special K No Bake Cookies are just the best! I know your friends and family will love them as much as mine does. They’re:
- super easy to make
- ready in minutes
- made with just 5 ingredients
- soft and chewy
- vegan & dairy-free
- a perfect balance of sweet and salty
- great for on-the-go snacking
So will you join me in grabbing several simple ingredients, your healthiest appetite (and by healthy I mean BIG), and get ready for some awesome no-baking? It would be my absolute pleasure to get our homemade snacking on! I can’t wait to hear what you think of this recipe.

Something to think about…
Do you have a favorite recipe passed down from Grandma?
Would it work to use chocolate hazelnut spread instead of peanut butter?
If the consistency is the same as normal JIF peanut butter, it should work fine.
My mother made these, and I absolutely love them. I’ve been wondering about the recipe. Thank you for publishing this !
So happy you were able to find it! My grandma always made these for us… one of my favorites!
My favorite family recipe, handed down from my grandmother. We love it. We add 1 cup of pecans.
Love that idea!
Today I made these but I had Special k chocolate coated flakes with Almond they were fabulous!
That sounds fabulous! So happy you enjoyed!
Wondering if a person could add some cocoa to these and make Chocolate Special K cookies. What do you think?
They’re very similar to the classic no-bake cookies, so I think it would work. I would add 1/4 cup cocoa to the sugar/karo syrup mixture. Let us know how it turns out!
Going to try them with Special K with blueberries
Yum! That sounds like a delicious idea!
I didn’t have corn syrup so I used maple syrup yummy great for a snack attack 😋 thank you 💕
Yay! So happy to hear that maple syrup worked!
I make these and add a Hersey kiss on top. I call them Christmas kisses!
I love that idea!
I made these last year, using rice krispies, and rolled them into balls. They were a hit! I got told that this year, I must make a double batch, and top some with chocolate. That way i, who don’t like peanut butter and chocolate together) have a shot at one or two.
I love that idea! I make these every year without fail. So good and so easy!
