2 tsp. baking soda
2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder

24 oz. bag choc. chips

5 c. oatmeal (or 3 ½ c. of coarsely ground oats)*

Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.
In separate bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix all ingredients together and add chocolate chips, and nuts. Place golf ball sized cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 6 minutes or until flattened and golden brown.

*To make coarsely ground oats, put oatmeal in blender or food processor until somewhat ground…..they should not be as powdery as flour…still some coarseness.

Enjoy some cookies and, to make some new friends, feel free to share them as they make an excellent ice breaker.
