These are one of my family's favorites. There's something for everyone in these. I have worked in the school cafeteria for 8 years and we have used this recipe a lot. The kids love them.

These are awesome! There's a fun crunch from the crispy rice, and the oatmeal and coconut give them a different texture than your average cookie. They're a very satisfying combination of crispy on the outside, a bit of a chew on the inside, without being at all crumbly. They were delicious and our whole family ate them up! We'll make these on a regular basis. Just a note, though. I did not use ground nuts. I used chopped ones. I missed the "ground" part the first few times I made the recipe. Once I noticed, I was too satisfied with the results I'd been getting with chopped nuts that I didn't see the point of going through the extra step of grinding them. Read More

Not bad. Would be better with less oil and addition of peanut butter. The rice krispies seemed kind of weird when you bit into one. Very crispy cookies. Read More

These cookies are very good. I added a cup of chopped walnuts and next time I may omit the coconut and use cocoa krispies instead of regular rice krispies. I didn't bother to press with a glass just dropped the dough onto parchment. Also easy to freeze in individual portions for baking at another time. Read More

I made these again for the "kazillionth" time! They are always a favorite. I use pecans rather than walnuts and make half with chocolate chips and half without (my favorite way). Great cookie recipe!! Read More

This recipe was fantastic! The cookies are soft and I ended up cooking then slightly longer then recommended. I also added butterscotch morsels and raisins instead of the rice cereal and it gave it a great taste. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

These cookies were crumbly and dry. I prefer a dense chewy cookie. Maybe it needs another egg or some molasses to keep the moisture over all of the "cups" of ingredients. Also this recipe just makes too many cookies. I didn't think there was such a thing but apparently there is. The dough completely fills a Kitchen Aid stand mixer's bowl. Read More
