  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat brown sugar, white sugar, and butter together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg one at a time, allowing the first to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next with the vanilla.
  3. Stir flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Beat into the butter mixture until just incorporated into a dough. Fold oats, crispy rice cereal, and coconut into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  4. Drop cookie dough by teaspoonful onto baking sheets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until browned, 8 to 9 minutes. Cool cookies slightly on baking sheets before moving to cooling racks to cool completely.

They cookies were good. We went directly off this recipe. However, they did end up very thin... Which is not what I had expected by looking at the picture on this recipe.

unbelievable... so delicious. My kids say "best cookies ever!" ( if they only knew coconut are in them!)

I've looked for this recipe but never could find it. My mother made them in the 40's. I have to tweet the recipe for high altitude so not as much sugar and a little more flour or they spread too...

Every once in a while you find a recipe that you absolutely love. For me, this is one of those recipes. I was afraid it would be too sweet, but it was just perfect. The only change I made was...

This was awesome. I followed the recipe exactly and these little guys turned out perfectly. I'm a sucker for rice krispies in desert-form, so their addition was original and necessary. This is ...

Good recipe. I did not add the white sugar, the recipe turned out good, and was plenty sweet. I added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Will make it again.

It was so good, probably one of my favouritest recipes ever! Definitely will be making more of these cookies in the future. The only problem I had was that they needed to cook a bit longer
