Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 18 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt for topping, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer OR with a handheld electric mixer, beat butter and sugars together until completely creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Beat in peanut butter, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix flour mixture into butter mixture until a soft dough forms. Fold in rice krispie cereal and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop dough into 1-in balls and place 1-in apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 9 minutes, then remove from oven and tap pan on counter several times to flatten cookies. Return cookies to oven for an additional 3-4 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Top cookies with a sprinkle of sea salt if desired. Cool cookies on pan 10 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
