Chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal, coconut, chocolate (duh!) haha and crispy rice cereal! These are delicious and have a nice chewy crunch.

  • 1 cup flour (5 ounces)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Whisk the flour, oats, coconut, baking soda, baking powder and salt all together in a bowl then set aside.

  3. In a stand mixer or large bowl beat the butter & sugars till creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix till smooth.

  4. On low-speed, mix in the flour mixture until combined. Scrape the bowl as needed. 

  5. Stir in the rice cereal and chocolate chips just until combined.

  6. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop and form the dough into balls. Place on prepared baking sheets and lightly press down on the cookie dough balls with the bottom of a glass cup sprayed with cooking spray (or you can use your hand).

  7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown. Store in an air tight container. 

Recipe Notes

-You can use corn flakes (or even Frosted Flakes!) in place of the rice cereal. 

-Also, any combo of chocolate chips can be used. I just really like to mix semi-sweet & milk chocolate. It's the best of both worlds :)
