Given to me my a friend, who knows a friend, etc……..way back in 1987. The grinding of the oatmeal is critical. Bake these cookies on the second level from the bottom of the oven.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla until very smooth and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a food processor, blend oatmeal until fine. Add to flour mixture.
Stir butter mixture into flour/oatmeal mixture. Blend well.
Add chocolate chips and walnuts. Stir until blended. Roll into golf balls size and bake for 8-10 minutes. You do not want to over bake these.
