Sorry to say, this just did not work for us. All of my ingredients were fresh. Even though the walnuts and oats did not look burned, I suspect that both the oven temp and amount of time for toasting were too high. I followed these directions very carefully, but the cookie taste was way off... burnt and greasy. The low amount of flour produced a grainy dough that spread very thin while baking and then got brittle after cooling. Nobody liked these. Sadly both cookies and remaining dough went into the trash.
