Two Peas and Their Pod: Crispy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Crispy Chocolate Oatmeal 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:)

Crispy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

(Printable Recipe)

½ cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 c. softened unsalted butter

1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 cup flour
1 cup oats-not quick oats

1 ¼ cups Rice Krispies cereal
Chocolate chips-about 1 cup

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.

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.

Scoop dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with Silpats or parchment. Bake for 10-12 minutes! Allow to cool for a minute on the cookie sheet. Move to a cooling rack and enjoy.

I like the use of Rice Krispies cereal in various things---love their subtle crunch. Which reminds me of a recipe I need to make (right after I try these cookies, that is). Thanks for the craving & the inspiration!

Nice! The cereal makes this a health food, right?

I think it was Cook's Illustrated that went searching for the best waffle recipe, and their final winner included rice crispies in the batter--to give the waffles a light and airy crunch.

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).
