Oatmeal and Coconut Crispy Cookies

I made these cookies for a family friend for his birthday. But, rather than the cookies actually being a present for him, it was more of an excuse just so I could try out this awesome recipe. I have never thought of putting rice krispies in a cookies, let alone with oats and coconut, before and I was surprised to find that this recipe was a hit. They do come out thin, but I think that is a factor of what makes them so delicious and unique. My friend gobbled them down.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour/whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup oats

1 cup crispy rice cereal (rice krispies)

1 cup flaked coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat brown sugar, white sugar, and butter together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add only 1 of the eggs.Allow the first to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next with the vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, blend flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated into a dough. Be careful not to over mix. Fold the oats, crispy rice cereal, and coconut into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  4. Roll the cookie dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet..
  5. Bake in preheated oven until browned, 8 to 9 minutes. Cool cookies slightly on baking sheets before moving to cooling racks to cool completely.
