From Cooking Light's 1994 Annual Cookbook. These are tasty little cookies made with quick-cooking oats, mini chocolate chips ( or you could use mini M&Ms for kids!) and Rice Krispies cereal for a little crunch.

A nice cookie. I halved it to get 20 cookies, but I got 17 with my small cookie scoop. The seemed to spread a lot on the pan, but that could be because I weigh my dry goods instead of using a measuring cup (there is a difference is what you get). So it may just need some tweaking. My family thought they were great, but I think the rice krispies threw me off even though I wanted to try a recipe with them in.
