They have oatmeal in them so you can even pretend they are health food. Nice, huh?
Ranger cookies travel well; they are perfect for lunchboxes (pretty sure they won't get traded for a DingDong) or shipping to Iraq (or Afghanistan, or Korea, or....)
The coconut helps them maintain moistness while the oatmeal helps them hold together. And, oddly enough, the Rice Krispies add a really cool texture.
Be sure to undercook them slightly and leave them on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes to firm up. They will stay chewy that way. If you like them crispy let them bake a little longer.
