Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a farmer…or a girl…to enjoy these cookies. Their delightfulness surpasses every demographic, which is a good thing…because this recipe makes a LOT.
2 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 c. brown sugar, packed
2 t. vanilla
5 c. regular rolled oats
4 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
1 12-oz. pkg. chocolate chips
1 7-oz. chocolate candy bar, broken into several pieces
3 c. nuts, chopped (I especially like almonds.)
Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla.
Process half of oats in blender until powdery. Process remaining half of oats until coarse, then add broken chocolate bar and process until oats are powdery and chocolate is chopped.
Add oats, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda, then stir into butter mixture.
Mix in chocolate chips and nuts.
Form into golf ball-sized balls and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
Makes 10 or so dozen.
NOTE: These cookies freeze very well.
