Recipe by Chesska
Not your traditional oatmeal cookie—an even better one! Rice Krispies add that extra crunch and the coconut supplies extra sweetness. If you want to really take them over the top, add chopped nuts and/or raisins.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I have one from the 80's back from when I was in high school and worked at a small town restaurant. I haven't made them cuz I couldn't find the recipe till recently. It was DOUBLE this recipe so I was trying to half it. I found your recipe and it is the measurements for half of my recipe and the same except that mine called for SHORTENING/CRISCO instead of butter. I used the shortening but I think if I used the butter they would be less bulky looking? Anyway, they tasted JUST like I remembered! : ) Made them with my 3 year old son and he loved them too! Thank you for helping to make sure these cookies live on for future generations! : ) Going try and post a photo. I think they should be flatter if I remember right?
