A welcome change from typical chocolate chip cookies. Chewy, crispy, and very tempting. Delicious straight from the freezer. You can’t stop at one!


  • ¾ cup coconut oil or canola oil
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal (I used B&D’s brown rice variety), divided
  • 1½ cups flour (see note)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup caramel chips
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • additional ⅓ cup each white and brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Cream oil and sugars together. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Crush 2 cups of cereal (I put it in a bag and crushed it with a schnitzel pounder) and add to the creamed mixture. Add flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir in chips and remaining cereal.

Mix the additional white and brown sugar in a small bowl. Either roll dough into balls or use a cookie scoop to form cookies. Carefully roll in the sugar mixture and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown.

These cookies freeze well.

Tip: These cookies can be used as a base for serving ice cream. If you prefer a softer cookie, bake for just 10 minutes.

Note: I used white spelt flour, and it came out perfect.
