Today is recipe reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club Group B! This month I was assigned the blog was Morsels of Life and I’ll admit, CJ had me stumped for a while. First I thought I was going to make marmalade, then I wanted to bake bread and I finally settled on cookies, because well, chocolate chip cookies make everything better. These Crispy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are my adaptation of her Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Crunch Cookies.
These delicious, crispy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies have a surprise ingredient you wouldn’t expect, crispy rice cereal. I was so intrigued by the addition of cereal to the dough that I just couldn’t resist making a batch. I’m not sure if it is the humidity here in Florida or the fact that I scaled the recipe to half, but I had to add 1/3 c of extra flour to get my cookies to bake up properly. My first test batch spread way too much and although they produced a crisp wafer-like texture, they just were not what I was craving – soft, chewy, chocolate chip cookies.
I really love the texture and the flavor that these cookies deliver, I could seriously not stop eating them! I think I ate two or three in one sitting, I refuse to remember exactly. Crisp edges and a soft center makes these Crispy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies a true gem of a recipe in my book, I just know this is one cookie I will be making for years to come. Enjoy and happy baking!

Anne-Marie @ This Mama Cooks! On a Diet says
I bet these could easily be made gluten free since you could use GF all purpose baking flour and GF krispy brown rice cereal. Hmmmm…
absolutely and I bet they would still taste just as good Anne-Marie 🙂
