Bake: 10 minutes
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup vegetable shortening (Used 1 cup butter instead)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light-brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups old-fashion oats
- 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 cup sweetened flake coconut
- 1 bag (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350°.
2. In small bowl, blend flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt with a whisk; set aside.
3. In large bowl, beat shortening and both sugars on medium-high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
4. On low speed, gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in oats, Rice Krispies, coconut and chocolate chips.
5. Form balls with 2 tablespoons of dough and place 2 inches apart on prepared sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
**I found this recipe in the Family Circle magazine. These were very easy and tasted great, although they were a little flat. I'm assuming it has to do with using butter instead of shortening.
