Ranger cookies are one of those classic cookie recipes that everyone’s family has a slightly different recipe for. They are a lot like the Cowboy cookies that my husband loves so much. The difference is the addition of Rice Krispies cereal. It adds another layer of texture to these perfectly chewy, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

What Other Ingredients Can I Put in Ranger Cookies?

Like I said there are lots of versions of this old fashioned cookie recipe. The most traditional version has shredded coconut in it in addition to the oats, chocolate chips, and Rice Krispies. I never added it to my Ranger cookies, or my Cowboy cookies for that matter! If you love shredded coconut you can add 1 cup to this recipe.

Some people also substitute corn flakes for Rice Krispies. They definitely change the taste and texture so give them both a whirl and see what you like best!
