Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am always on the lookout for new cookie recipes. Awhile ago, I saw a couple of cookie recipes that used crisped rice cereal. I love cereal and cookies so why not enjoy them together?I started with my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. I stirred in Rice Krispies and waited to hear the snap, crackle, and pop. I was a little disappointed, there was no sound coming from my cookie dough. I guess I needed to add milk, but I didn’t want a soggy dough, so I pressed forward:)

The cookies baked up nicely. I really liked the added crisp from the cereal. They were a fun addition! I am glad I tried them. And since there is cereal involved go ahead and eat these for breakfast, I won’t tell:)

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Combine butter and sugars in your mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. On low, add in egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.

  2. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, and cereal. Don't over mix. You don't want to crush the cereal too much.

  1. Nice idea! You could prob even go with chocolate krispies if you're in the coco mood 🙂 That is too bad there was no snapping and popping in the dough, I love that.

    Actually, I really must like that sound. I crack and pop people on a daily basis (or that's what THEY say).

  2. Sorry I have been MIA, I have been so busy, but it has made me feel so bad not to have time to comment. These look great, my dad loves crispy oatmeal cookies, I have to try these.

  3. I tried a cookie that used corn flakes once, I really liked the crunch it gave. I can only imagine how yummy rice krispies would be with cookies. Fun idea!

  4. Wow, those sound so good! My mom puts rice krispies in her special chocolate chip cookies–they are definitely a special weapon when it comes to making good cookies!

  5. OK…so you really need to stop with all of these cookie recipes! My mouth won’t stop watering! They all look so fabulous and delicious! Yum!

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Many thanks

  7. These cookies were easy to make and were really good. My grandson loved them.
    My question is why are so many people making comments before they have even made or tried the cookies? What’s the point?

  8. I make this recipe but in gluten free form and they are a huge hit. The Rice Krispies make it! I’ve also done them with butterscotch morsels instead of chocolate. Toffee bits with chocolate chips or chocolate chips and butterscotch morsels. All very good variations.

  9. This recipe turned out horrible. I followed the recipe completely, the dough turned out dry and the cookies were puffy and cake-y. They did not taste good and the texture was awful. I followed the recipe so if I did something wrong please enlighten me. 

  10. 5 stars
    Everyone who eats these cookies always asks for the recipe. However, I have decreased the sugar to 1/3 c. of each of the sugars but added 1/2 c. of organic brown rice crisps for a healthier version … and lately, I have used grass fed butter, too.

  11. 5 stars
    These are delicious! I love the unexpected crunch that the crispy rice cereal brings to the cookie. With crispy cereal and oatmeal as two of the ingredients, sounds like a breakfast stand-in to me!!

    In this senior’s teenage years, I remembered one of my favorite cookie recipes combined oatmeal and rice krispies. That recipe was lost many years ago so I am so glad that I found your recipe which has undergone some minor changes as all my friends and their kids just love this recipe.

    Instead of rice krispies, I use Nature’s Path’s koala crisps or sprouted brown rice crisps but increasing the amount to one and a half cups and eliminating the chocolate chips – sometimes adding raisins or dried cranberries. Since the family is trying to decrease the use of sugar, I just used 2/3 c. of combined sugars instead . Definitely a keeper

  13. These cookies were so dry and crumbly I couldn’t get them to stick together. Finally got them in the oven and they just fell apart in places. The cookie needs another egg.
