Crispy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
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:)
½ cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 c. softened unsalted butter
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.
SO fun! I love the addition of the krispies!! This would be so fun to make with kiddos.
I would so eat these for breakfast! :) I've never seen cookies with rice crispies in ,but that's brilliant. They look scrumptious!
These looks so good! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and the rice krispie addition sounds amazing. I don't know if I'll eat them for breakfast but I'm definitely going to make some!
What a great idea for some added texture!
Mmm, I love crispy chocolate. And I'd definitely eat these for breakfast. ;-)
Maria- These sound delightful. Love the addition of the krispies!
Wow these cookies look so so good.
Ah, so it's a chewy cookie with some crispy mixed in? That is genius! And of course, how can you go wrong with choc chip? ;)
mmmmm what a fun idea! I just made oatmeal raisin cookies and posted about them today :)
What a great idea! I had cookies this past weekend that had fruity pebbles and marshmallows in them and they were so amazing.
Love the addition of Rice Krispies!! These sound so good..
Yum, these look and sound great! Love the addition of rice crispies. I bet the texture is great!
Cereal in cookies? Terrific idea! I will definitely try these!
WHAT?? no noise from the cereal..that is no fun! But the cookies look yummy
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!
my fav... I just love cookies. The only thing is when they are in my house I just have no self control and I can't stop from eating like 10 a day... whoops!
Why do you mock me with your cookies? haha. Just kidding. I bet the rice krispies were fun!
What exquisite cookies, yummy!
StephChows-Saw your cookies, will have to make those soon!
Gaby-That is why we share our baked goods. If they are on the counter, I will eat them:)
CB-No mocking, just letting you know that cookies are the best..ha!
Great idea to add the cereal. I do like a little crispy texture to my cookies too!
I love using cereal in cookies - gives them a nice crunch, as well as a nutritional boost. Yours looks fantastic!
Your cookies, as always, sound just delicious. It's hard to beat that combination.
i like me some crispy cookies! if i wanted something cakey, i'd eat cake. :)
Cookies for breakfast? I'm in!
Your father's day post was lovely as well. You and your dad are so cute.
This is a fun idea, kind of a cross between cookie!
Your cookies look great! I made waffles with rice crispies once and they were great b/c they stayed crispy!
Crunch, crunch! Love the added krispies! Mmm, breakfast! I love me a ccc!
Oh my goodness, these sound awesome. What if I added Coco-Krispies? Hmm....
My coworker and I were just having a conversation about cookies and how they can be so addictive. I don't think these would last long between the two of us...
I love the idea of adding rice krispies to cookies - so fun!!
cereal in cookies? Best of both worlds! YUM!
Wow...these look scrumptious!
I made a recipe like this and LOVED it! In fact, when I took it with me on call one of the other students at the whole batch (minus about 8 cookies). :-)
Wow - these look great! I can honestly say I have never had chocolate oatmeal cookies with rice krispies before... but they sound delicious!
What a unique recipe, they look delicious!
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.
So yummy! I am going to give these a try with the rice crispies. These look and sound addictive.
You make the BEST COOKIES EVER! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and can you believe that I have never tried to make them!? That needs to change!
Yes! Jay Robb Protein. I like the egg white powder. I have a discount coupon up on my blog- http://itzyskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/06/weeeeekeeend.html
A breakfast of champions indeed! The snap, crackle and pop come when you dip them in milk, right?
I love the crispiness of these cookies and chocolate chips and oatmeal go so well together.
yum! these look divine:)
hehe, i've done the corn flake cookes which came out pretty good, i bet these are great too!
Fun! I love the idea of making these with Krispies!
something about those rice krispies.... i'll tell ya.
beautiful looking cookie!
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).
My first time on your blog--I love it and can't wait to explore!
Of course I would eat them for breakfast! They look like fun delicious cookies!
This sounds like such a great idea!
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.
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!
The cookies sound amazing! Bookmarked for sure ;0)
You my dear are the cookie expert. This look so every cripy-licious!
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!
