Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F, then line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2:

In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth. Next, mix in the sugars, vanilla extract, and honey for two minutes. Add the eggs and beat until well combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides and bottom.

Step 3:

Get a separate bowl, and add the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground coffee. Next, add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until incorporated. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips, then gently stir in the rice cereal. If the batter turns out really soft, cover and refrigerate for one hour until firm.

Step 4:

To make large cookies, get a 1/4 cup of batter using a cookie scoop and place about 3 inches apart on the baking sheet, then flatten them slightly with your fingers to make them about 1/2 inch thick. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 10 to 13 minutes. It should be golden brown around the edges and soft in the center. If you want chewy cookies, slightly underbake them. For crunchy cookies, bake a minute or two longer. Once done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before you transfer them to the cooling rack to cool completely. You can store these in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days, or they can be frozen.
