You can make cookies out of any cereal, and it’s totally up to you what to try.

So, while I don’t fancy All-Bran cookies, I bet a few of you would devour a whole batch.

That’s what makes baking so much fun!

If you’re ready to experiment, try these cereal cookies, and let me know which you like best!

1. Lucky Charm Cookies

These melt-in-your-mouth cookies are incredible.

They’re buttery, sweet, and dotted with white chocolate chips and marshmallows.

The cookies themselves are even softer than the Lucky Charms marshmallows, so you probably won’t even need a glass of milk. 

2. Rice Krispie Cookies

You’ve likely had Rice Krispie treats before, but have you ever had Rice Krispie cookies?

They’re crunchy, crumbly, and loaded with yummy goodies. 

The oats and coconut provide a warm, rich base. And the salted caramel adds just enough saltiness to balance out all the sugar. 

They’re totally unique cookies, so you can’t compare them to anything else. Suffice to say, they’re superb, and you should try them.

3. Fruity Pebbles Cookies

These colorful cookies are excellent for birthday parties.

While they look like funfetti desserts, their flavor is different. They’re sweet, but their bright fruitiness makes them downright delicious.

The contrasting textures are lovely, too. The cookies are soft and tender, but the Fruity Pebbles are delightfully crunchy.

4. Coconut Rice Krispie Cookies

Here’s another excellent recipe for Rice Krispie cookies.

However, these have a richer, almost tropical flavor thanks to the shredded coconut. 

They have the same chewy and crunchy consistency but are a bit more indulgent.

Both recipes are flavorful and easy to make, though. So I say you should try them both!

5. Captain Crunch Cookies

In the picture, it looks like you’ll decorate these cookies with Captain Crunch. However, you’ll actually use cereal cookie crumbs throughout the batter.

That means that every bite has the bright, sweet, and fruity flavor of Captain Crunch.

Of course, you can add pieces to the cookies if you like. You can even add a sticky-sweet glaze. 

But even without all that, these are super yummy.

They’re dense and chewy and full of white chocolate chips. They’re also ideal milk-dunking cookies.

6. Ranger Cookies with Chex

These are big, tender chocolate chip cookies, just like you’d get at a bakery. Their edges are crisp, and their centers are melt-in-your-mouth chewy.

The biggest difference is that these include coconut and four cups of Chex cereal.

That gives them a fantastic crunch that chocolate chip cookies don’t usually have.

It’s also what makes me love them so much. Those contrasting but complementary textures are hard to beat.

Frankly, it makes these cookies borderline addictive.

7. Reese’s Puffs Chocolate Chip Cookies

You have two options with these cookies: make standard chocolate chip cookies with Reese’s Puffs cereal or make cookie sandwiches

The sandwiches are ridiculously decadent, but they’re soooo good.

Either way, you’ll get plenty of chocolate and peanut butter flavor. 

8. Honey Bunches of Oats Cookies

This recipe’s author describes these cookies as “granola clusters,” which is an apt description.

They’re dense and chunky drop cookies with a rich honey flavor. 

Sweet and nutty, they take just 15 minutes to make. Plus, each one has less than 100 calories, so they’re relatively healthy, too.

9. Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies

These sweet, sticky cookies are a holiday staple in my house because you can whip them up in just 15 minutes with only five ingredients.

And everyone will love them.

They taste like syrupy peanut butter and have a terrific Corn Flake crunch.

Keep an eye on them if you take them to a family gathering. Before you know it, the platter will be empty!

10. Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies

These gorgeous cookies are entirely over the top. But, of course, that’s also what makes them so phenomenal.

They’re rich and soft and packed with cinnamony goodness. 

The cream cheese icing and cinnamon sugar coating also take them to a whole new level.

The kids will love their bold flavor and fun appearance. Still, these are attractive enough to serve at more formal events, too.

11. Frosted Flakes Cookies

Full of sugary Frosted Flakes and chocolate, these cookies are divine. They’re sweet and salty, crunchy and soft. 

And most importantly, they have the ooeiest, gooiest, most chocolatey centers.

Seriously, these things are insanely scrumptious. Take one bite, and you’re hooked!

12. Mexican Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies

These warm, crumbly chocolate cookies have the look and texture of Crumbl cookies.

That means they’re tender but have a delicate crunchiness, as well. 

They also have an insanely rich, bold flavor.

Chocolatey, cinnamony, and coffee-y to the max; if you’re a fan of Mexican chocolate, these will be your new favorite cookies.

13. Muesli Cookies

Raisins, nuts, apricots, oats…what more could you want in a cookie?! 

The muesli fad has been sweeping the nation lately. People love how crunchy and flavorful it is.

So, why not harness all that goodness in these terrific cookies?

They use several ingredients but aren’t hard to make. With a bit of effort, you can have three dozen ready in less than an hour. 

And although they’re fantastic for dessert, all those healthy ingredients make them a breakfast favorite, too.

They’re a delicious, nutritious snack that you can enjoy any time of day. 

14. Homemade Star Crunch Cookies

These copycat Star Crunch cookies are – pardon the pun – out of this world!

Thanks to the Rice Krispies, they have the same fun-tastic crunch. Plus, they have the unbeatable combo of chocolate and peanut butter.

Add some maple syrup to give them their stretchy, gooey centers, and you’re all set. 

15. Date Skillet Cookies With Crispy Rice Cereal and Coconut

If you want a confection that isn’t quite as sweet, give these a try.

They’re only lightly sweetened and feature the natural flavors of coconut and dates. 

The Rice Krispies and pecans give them plenty of crunch, but the coconut outside adds a chewiness, too.

Their unique texture is half the fun of eating them. It also doesn’t hurt that you can make them in less than 20 minutes. 

16. Florentine Rice Cereal Treats

Want to make something that looks exotic and festive? Whip up these Florentine rice cereal treats.

They’re sticky, chocolatey, and chock-full of fall and winter spices. There’s also enough fruit and nuts in them to rival a Christmas fruitcake!

You can pull together a tin of these in just five minutes; then they’ll need another couple of hours to set. 

These are perfect if you want something that’ll wow your family this holiday season.

17. Easy No-Bake Avalanche Cookies

I love everything about these avalanche cookies.

I love that they use just five ingredients and need just five minutes to make. And I love that there’s no cooking involved

I also love their stretchy, gooey consistency and chocolate and peanut butter flavor.

Like I said, everything.

They’re like Rice Krispie treats, only better. 

They’re more chocolatey and more marshmallow, making them pretty much the perfect dessert.
