I’ve won awards with these cookies.

a bowl of delivious cookies



  • \(270\) g (\(1\frac{3}{4}\) cups) bread flour
  • \(85\) g (\(1\) cup) rolled oats
  • \(1\) tsp baking soda
  • \(6\) g (\(1\) tsp) kosher salt


  • \(2\) sticks of good quality softened butter (e.g. Irish)
  • \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup light brown sugar
  • \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup granulated sugar
  • \(2\) eggs

  • \(1\) cup of Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate chips or break up an equivalent amount of a nice, bittersweet chocolate bar

  1. Preheat oven to 375º F (190º C)
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside
  3. Cream butter and sugars in a large bowl (I use a food processor)
  4. Mix in eggs separately and then vanilla
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix very well. I put on hearing protection and run the food processor for a couple of minutes. You’re building gluten. Mmm … gluten
  6. add walnuts, process, drop in the chocolate bar and process or drop in the chocolate chips and stir
  7. Scoop onto cookie sheet with #20 (yellow handled) disher
  8. optional: sprinkle with coarse salt
