DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla well.
  • Pulverize the oatmeal in a blender a little at a time.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  • With your fingers, place golf-ball-sized dough portions, 2" inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8-9 minutes or until edges are light brown.
  • My "healthier" substitutions:
  • For the 2 cups of flour, I use 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry or organic oat flour PLUS 1/2 cup soy flour.
  • For the sugar, I substitute fructose.
