  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Grind up oatmeal into flour. Mix flour and oatmeal.
  • Cream butter and sugars.
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  • Sprinkle salt, powder, and soda over wet ingredients. Combine.
  • Add dry mix one to two cups at a time.
  • Add chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Bake 10-13 minutes. They will look very wet still if you want them moist and chewy. If you cook til they look dry they will be crunchier.
  • Let rest on baking sheet til setup and then transfer to a paper towel-lined tray to finish cooling.


Adaptation Disclosure: This recipe came from my mom’s recipe box from growing up. I have no idea where she got the original or how much she modified it from that recipe. Original props goes to somebody I’m sure. We applaud the inventors of chocolate chip cookies. Someone should give them a….cookie. And some milk.
