These Salty Ritz Cracker Oatmeal Cookies are a fun variation on a chewy oatmeal cookie! Salty and sweet and filled with white chocolate chips, they were a huge hit in my house!
So these little cookies look unassuming, right?
Just another boring cookie.
Welp. Yes and no.
I certainly won’t call it boring…nevah! But yes, it’s an oatmeal cookie…
BUT there is a secret ingredient inside.
Ok, it’s not so secret considering I put it IN THE TITLE!
But yeah, it’s crushed up Ritz crackers. It gives the underbelly of these guys a salty/buttery hint that only comes from that addictive cracker.
AND I added some white chocolate chips, because I can’t just let things alone.
I was actually trying to make another kind of cookie today to share, but my KIDS ate all the ingredients, so while that was annoying, I put my thinking cap on and created these. I suppose I’d call that a success.
Let’s talk a sec about these Salty Ritz Cracker Oatmeal Cookies.
Just grab some Ritz.
It’ll take about 11 or 12 to get a 1/2 cup of crushed crackers.
Make sure to add a little extra salt in your dough. I prefer a COARSE sea salt. That way you get little salty nuggets throughout the cookie…not so much an all-over saltiness, which I don’t like as much.
When you have all your other ingredients mixed in chill the dough for about an hour and then bake!
They will look a little something like this when they’re done.
The white chocolate chips cut the saltiness and add a nice texture!
