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!

Shelly, what a brilliant idea! I love Ritz crackers so much. They must give the oatmeal cookies such an incredible buttery, salty flavour. Your photos are gorgeous! I wish I could reach into my screen and grab a cookie (or three).

Oatmeal cookies are my favorite!! I know it’s not cool but my plan is to find a way to make boring looking, beige food take over the world. It always tastes the best. These cookies are at the top of my list 🙂

Am I blind or are there no actual ritz crackers in the recipe? It’s not listed w the ingredients. These cookies sound like something I’d like.

I didn’t see the ritz crackers listed as others have mentioned. But read in your directions w/pictures you mentioned 11 to 12 crackers were needed to make 1/2 cup ritz crackers into crumbs. So I guess that’s what is to be added. I printed off the recipe, but added 1/2 cup ritz cracker crumbs on it.

This cookies might look boring in the outside, but they are everything but, in the outside. Just goes to show, don’t judge a cookie by its cover.
