What a happy find this neglected recipe was! Only two reviews and none for the past year? This is one, great cookie!! While it seems like just a basic cookie dough with add-ins on it surface, it is so much better than just that. Full of flavor, a variety of textures, not too sweet, chewy middle, crispy edges, just wonderful! I followed the recipe with no changes save for using chocolate chips instead of the raisins - the combination of the semi-sweet chocolate and the coconut was a perfect match. I couldn't decide between the Rice Krispies or the Special K Protein Plus ( a flake type cereal) I had on hand and in the end the Special K won out. This is simply a good, old-fashioned, cookie jar type cookie, a make-again for sure. Read More

These are easy and nice cookies. I have a tendency to dump everything all at once in the bowl then mix and I did that this morning. They are a hearty not too sweet cookie. They didn't spread much; I was a bit surprised. I don't know what the bf did with my raisins so I used currants instead and I don't have coconut so I added in craisins. I'll try them again with coconut and I'm sure they'll be good with coconut as well. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This cookie was outstanding! I used oats instead of the whole wheat flake cereal because it was what I had on hand and added chocolate chips because they are a family favorite! Other than that everything else was the same and what a great cookie they turned out to be. Loved the coconut and oats together... Read More

Just made these tonight.. made a couple changes: Used splenda in place of the sugar as well as splenda brown sugar. I only used 1/4 cup of margerine (didn't have butter) and 1/2 cup apple sauce. I didn't have raisons so replaced with slivered almonds and as suggested used corn flakes. 4/5 cause of the changes. They didn't really spread out at all but turned out really good.. I'm glad I made them a bit more calorie wise cause I've eaten 2 already and may have a 3rd:o) Read More

Great cookie!!! I question the order of ingredients mostly because I didn't see how I could physically stir all that flour in first. Besides that mechanical change a wonderful recipe thank you! Read More
