  • Portion size 36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup rice crisp cereal cornflakes or other non-sugar-coated cereal
  • 3/4 cups candy-coated chocolate pieces (such as M & Ms)
  • 2 oz semisweet chocolate chopped

Method

In bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt ; set aside. In separate large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and creamy, 1 minute. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.

Using wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture, oats, coconut, cereal, candy-coated chocolate and semisweet chocolate until combined.

Firmly press by 2 tbsp (25 mL) into balls (dough may seem crumbly); place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on 2 parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, for about 12 minutes or until edges and tops begin to brown.

Remove from oven; press centre of each cookie with palm of hand. Transfer to racks; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.)
