Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Cookies

My favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe with the addition of Rice Krispies.

Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Cookies

The addition of Rice Krispies add a nice surprise texture.

The Rice Krispies didn’t stay very crispy once baked but they did added a nice texture, almost a little chewy. Made for a nice surprise.

Fast and Easy Dinner Rolls Recipe

So I have made these four times in the past month or so. Getting them just right has been a little bit tricky, but they are really easy and super delicious.

The first time I made these they turned out perfect, absolutely amazing and everyone gobbled them right up. The second time they didn’t rise and the third time… well I don’t even know what happened the third time. The fourth time I measured everything exactly and followed everything exactly and they turned out great again. So I suggest following the recipe and the measurements exactly and making sure you have a warm place to let them rise. They really are fast and easy and delicious when they turn out.

This is defiantly a recipe I will be coming back to again and again.

Easy No Bake Oat Bars [Starbucks Copycat]

I miss baking. I miss eating my baking. Baking just takes too much time right now. Time I don’t have.

For the last couple days weeks, I have been wanting to bake. Yesterday, I was looking up oat bars (like they have at Starbucks). My husband loves oat bars and I have a Costco amount of oats. When I came across this recipe I thought it was worth a try. First of all, it gave me a chance to use my Blendtec and second, it looked simple and fast – no baking required!

Easy No Bake Oat Bars [Starbucks Copycat]

They are delicious! They took me no time at all, I had the bars pressed into the pan within five minutes and the chocolate took a couple minutes longer. I think it actually took me longer to clean up the mess then actually make these bars.

Gluten and Dairy Free Oat Bars [Starbucks Copycat]

I used butter in replace of the coconut oil for both the bars and the chocolate, I wasn’t looking for a coconut taste but I think I will try it next time. I also used an 8×8 pan, I wouldn’t use the 7×13 they recommend, they bars would be pretty thin. The texture was different then Starbucks (less dry and crumbly, probably because of the no baking) but they were just as delicious.

I don’t want to turn this into a cooking or baking blog but I had to share this recipe because it was so easy and yummy. Any quick, easy and delicious baking is a win for this new Mom.

Update 7/7/2014 – I made these again today, this time I used the coconut oil and they were just as delicious. Just a slight coconut taste. I will defiantly keep making these, probably with the coconut oil as it is a healthier option. Husband says they are okay but “not Starbucks”. I also timed myself today, they took about 20 minutes from start to completely cleaned up.
