OAT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES WITH WALNUTS

 

  • Cooking Time: 10
  • Servings: 48
  • Preparation Time: 15

Ingredients

  • 1 c. butter, slightly softened
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBSP buttermilk (regular milk would be fine)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 c. unbleached flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. rolled oats
  • 8 oz. chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. chopped walnuts (or nuts of your choice)
  • 3/4 c. sweetened, shredded coconut (or dried fruit)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  • 2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about three minutes. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides once during creaming.
  • 3. Beat in eggs one at a time, then mix in the vanilla and buttermilk.
  • 4. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Add to the butter mixture in three additions.
  • 5. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut or dried fruit.
  • 6. Drop by tablespoons full (I used a cookie scoop) on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, parchment paper, or foil with the dull side up. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until light brown and still slightly gooey. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes

These cookies are from Garland's Lodge in Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona. My husband and I love Garland's and we love these cookies so much I made them for our wedding!
