Sometimes you just need a cookie… or like 3!
These Oatmeal Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies are just what you need.
They are nice and crisp on the edges and super chewy in the middle, which I love.The addition of rice krispies really adds a nice texture!
What you need,
1 ½ cups butter (I used salted cause I always do!)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt (I only used ½ a tsp. because I used salted butter!)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups quick oats
2 cup rice Krispie cereal
2 cups chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silpat mat.
In a large bowl beat the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one a time and beat until well incorporated.
Stir in the vanilla.
In a separate bowl whisk together the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour.
Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined. Add the oats and cereal and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop the batter by the heaping tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake 9-10 minutes until golden around the edges but still soft in the middle.
Cool on the pan for 3-4 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
You can stash the cooled cookies in an airtight container for about 3 days, not like they will last that long! Or you could freeze them 2 per little zip lock bag and save them to toss in school and work lunches. I know a little pack of these cookies would brighten my day!
What else can I say… MMMMM Cookies! Really really good cookies!
