healthier chocolate cornflake cakes on wooden plate

Healthier chocolate cornflake cakes

Chocolate cornflake cakes are a real children's favourite. My healthier version is still crunchy, chewy and deliciously chocolatey. Made with dark chocolate, maple syrup and raisins. Suitable for vegans.

Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 12


  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75 g cornflakes
  • 50 g raisins


  1. Place 12 fairy cake cases into a bun tin or on a baking tray.
  2. Break up 200g dark chocolate into small pieces and place in a heat proof bowl. Put this bowl over a small pan with 1 inch water and heat gently until melted.
  3. When the chocolate has just melted add 2 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  4. Remove from the heat carefully.
  5. Stir through 75g cornflakes and 50g raisins. If children are making this you may want to put the cornflakes and raisins into a separate bowl and put the chocolate into a jug for them to pour. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  6. Spoon the cornflake mixture into the cases.
  7. Set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
