Total Time45 mins
- 2½ cups rolled oats
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- 4 ounces milk chocolate grated
- 1½ cups chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Blend the oats in a food processor to a fine powder.
In a large bowl, whisk together the blended oats with the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set oat mixture aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or electric mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula and beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour and oat mixture to the butter mixture, beating just until incorporated. With a silicone spatula, fold in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate and walnuts.
Using about 2 heaping tablespoons of dough, roll the dough into balls and place about 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheets. Bake one sheet at a time until the edges are set but the center still looks undone, about 10 minutes.
Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheets.
