Parliament Chunkadelic cookies- they’re nutty!

October 13, 2009

My giveaway is officially over now. Sorry to everyone who didn’t make it in time to post an entry, but thank you to everyone who did! Go look at the awesome entries right now. As far as picking a winner, we’re gonna get on that ASAP (yes I said “we’re“, I’m gonna have some help). Hopefully we’ll have a winner next week sometime. But for now… have some cookies.

Just as an aside- isn’t it funny how “chunky” is a good thing when used to describe cookies, but not people? These cookies are supposed to be chocolate chunk cookies with oatmeal. But I added walnuts too, so they’re more than just your average chunky chocolate chip cookie. They’re nutty too. So they’re nutty, and chunky, and for some reason that reminded me of Parliament Funkadelic. *pause for reaction* So I hereby re-name these cookies Parliament Chunkadelic cookies. But if you wanna be boring you can call ’em Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut cookies.



  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 ¼ cups chocolate chunks or chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease your baking sheets.
  2. Combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a bowl. Beat until creamy. Then beat in egg and vanilla; set aside.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating continuously. Stir in walnuts, chocolate chips and oats.
  4. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the dough, 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let cookies cool  for one minute before transferring to wire racks. Repeat with any remaining dough.

These were good, but honestly, the Clinton’s Chips cookies (also made with oatmeal and chocolate chips/chunks) are way better. So just make that recipe and add in some walnuts. That’s just my two cents.

  1. I do too, I do too. But it is funny that if you call a person chunky, they’d be slightly put out. But yet calling a cookie chunky is a good thing. Everything is relative.

  2. Thanks for the feedback, I agree they really look bulky but are very cute at the same time, since we are planning a child in our near future I try to do as much research as possile, when I told my husband avout cloth diapers, he was like “No way we are doing that” it scared him a lot but as I can see its not that bad! However, i agree that if I would have to travel with the baby or stay overnight somewhere I would use disposables, they have great Organic and Natural brands as well!

  3. Excellent items from you, man. I have keep in mind your stuff prior to and you’re
    simply too wonderful. I really like what you have got right here, really like what you are saying and the best way wherein you say it.

  4. Sehr feine Kissen! Und der Elch in der Schale ist ja sowas von süß!Zum Thema Deko…ich habe in der Küche auf der Fensterbank immernoch kleine, rote, saftige Erdbeeren stehen, gehäkelt von meiner Schwester. Ich hab´ne Dekoblockade,sehe 10000 Ideen im Netz aber mit der Umsetzung hapert es im Moment, aber gibt schlimmeres,gell?Einen wunderbaren Start ins Wochenende wünscht Dir,Bianca

  5. mdt,pourriez-vous mettre le lien direct de Interaction sur ce blog, je n´ai rien trouvé jusqu´à présent. Merci.Yves,si vous décidiez un jour de vous présenter à la présidentielle, je n´hésiterais pas à faire les 350 km jusqu´au bureau de vote pour vous donner une voix!!!

  6. Hey Ivan thanks so much for the warning. I plan on moving to France next year for work and I really want to pick the language. I will keep this in mind.[] Reply:December 4th, 2012 at 4:13 pmmy pleasure …good luck on your adventure….Ivan´s last [type] ..[]

  7. Great – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, website theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task.

  8. I think we have all done that at least one or two times in our lives, especially if there is a pretty girl involved boyfriend or no boyfriend. =DAs we get older and wiser we tend to start picking our friends better and become a much better judge of character. Its only through situations like what you described we learn a little more about the different facets of human nature and in doing so become wiser to the world we live in.

  9. D'après l'expérience que nous avons tiré de notre site de , il existe bien des raisons qui poussent les hommes et les femmes à aller voir ailleurs. Celle-ci en fait certainement parti tout comme le besoin de faire des choses interdites, le raz le bol de la routine, le besoin de se rassurer pour les hommes, et j'en passe


  11. Hallo Katharina,nicht nur du freust dich auf die neuen Stempel,sondern auch viele von uns,denke ich mal.Ich weiß.das ich sie mir auf alle Fälle kaufen werde,denn sie sind wunderschön.Einen schönen Sonntag noch und viele Grüße.Dagmar

  12. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  13. loved the articles ,they answered most of my queastions.we got a good deal on gerbils at our local pet store.they had them marked down to under 3.00 ea due to the fact they had too many,plus a litter due to come down.thank you very much.chuck tice

  14. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just
    don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

  15. Actually, emigration of French Jews should rise, after the recent slaughter and the fact no one who believes in self-preservation would dare wear a kippot on the street in many French cities.Remember that while a number still live there for now, the relevant question is how many have bought homes in Israel.

  16. Assurément, les « traductions » proposées auraient pu être moins lourdes (pour ne pas dire lourdingues).Remercions Faiçal pour son effort plus convaincant !Pour ma part, j’ai quelques doutes sur le 4 pour lequel je dirais plutôt : « Votre célérité est difficile à surpasser. »

  17. Conosco e rispetto Marco Mantovani e molti dirigenti di Forza Nuova ma, politicamente, con loro, non ho proprio nulla a che fare. Anzi, spesso, abbiamo avuto animate discussioni politiche non condividendo loro il mio concetto di “grande destra” e la mia strategia di alleanze elettorali e programmatiche. Sicuramene non hanno manifestato per esprimermi la loro solidarietà ma, semplicemente, per farsi un poco di pubblicità elettorale, in maniera certamente provocatoria, quanto assolutamente pacifica.Roberto Jonghi LavariniPresidente del ComitatoDESTRA PER MILANOLiberaMente nel PDL

  18. Hi Archana,Just to clarify factually, the appeal filed by NDTV is only against the following -Direction number (ii) that the defendant's can access match footage only after a 30 min delayDirection (v) and (vi) regarding use of advertisements, as part of tickers or otherwise, in Special/Sponsored Programmes(also known as Magazine Programmes) wherein footage of plaintiff's is shown

  19. Good point Armor.If the poor-but-humble non-whites are that way because of their environment, then why change that by moving them into a white country.Or…Are they implying that these people are implicitly better than us, you know, genetically? In which case thats a racist belief in racial difference.

  20. Twoim zdaniem J. KaczayÅ„ski powinien zapewne powiedzieć, ze ujawni na forum ONZ co wie na temat prawdziwycvh przyczyn “katastrofy” samolotu na podstawie otrzymanych materiałów z amerykaÅ„skiego zwiadu elektronicznego i satelitarnego ?Ile czasu po takim oÅ›wiadczeniu by pożyÅ‚?

  21. Prem’sExcellent (comme toujours) Karim, j’ai particulièrement apprécié « Le court Dien Bien Phu » et « tout le monde sait qu’il n’y a pas que son revers qu’il pilonne.Je pense d’ailleurs quil y a un article à faire sur les rapports (!!!) entre les profs de tennis et les adhérentes (idem les moniteurs de ski je pense !!).En tous cas, ça rappelle effectivement des souvenirs des clubs que j’ai fréquenté.Dis, Karim, ils sont devenus quoi, les TRuong ?

  22. By Crusty 19 December, 2008 – 13:40I think if view Claire’s comment about not remembering the midnight kiss to JTAs about when the drinking starts perhaps the answer will become clear! I think I’ll just wait till Chinese New Year – I like lunar calenders better anyway and it means I won’t have to share germs with quite as many people…..

  23. in one tvb news prog, some of the elderly have assets like properties they are living. they have some savings too. thus they are not qualified for subsidies and continue to work at low hourly rate.there is no simple solution. minimum wage helps some people (those working at big corp like shk) while creating trouble for other people (those very small companies will shut down).

  24. Kalo melihat animo masyarakat kita (blogger) keknya tinggi juga… tapi berakhir dng frustasi…Gak semua orang punya semangat dan mungkin waktu untuk swadaya swasembada ngubek-ubek OS Linux … Perlu dipikirkan nih kayaknya disusun Tutorial Linux yang komprehensif… minimal untuk level user.Piye kang?.-= xitalho´s last blog .. =-.

  25. Hello Dr. Deb! Its been a while, but I am glad to see that you are doing well! I love your new pic on here, too! 🙂 I was just on the NIMH site last night…I am SO glad that there is some sort of website out there that can promote awareness to anxiety and mental disorders like I have. Now if only I could get myself to a doctor… ;)Hugs to you,Sarah

  26. ONE more thing…..We have a fantastic reactive police force. I have nothing but respect for them in their rapid responses to any call that I have ever made to them.This case however was not reactive, it was proactive and as such I applaud them on attempting to enforce the rules of the road!!

  27.  Progress Bar says: I have to gently disagree with Kim Cameron about the renaming of Infocard. Personally, I thought it [InfoCard] was a fine name. Then again I am a Mac user and Keychain just makes sense.

  28. Tan wrote:”The New Conquistador logic has holes so huge Cortez could march an army through them.”That implies the new conquistadors HAVE logic — which is more a Euro thing than a SAmer. indian thing, no senor?Is it logic and thought or emotion and greed? Anyone wanna vote?(Oh I guess those illegals do… or so Hillary and her ilk are betting…)

  29. After looking over a handful of the articles on your web page, I seriously appreciate your way of blogging.
    I added it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back in the near future.
    Please visit my web site too and tell me how you feel.

  30. Zeus not being hard on you, are you sure that you're talking about the same ride that when I rode the first time last year that after getting off my side hurt SO badly that I thought I had broken a rib?For me, Cyclops and Pegasus are the ONLY two enjoyable coasters in the park, Cyclops being my new number one ride of all time after giving me one hell of a last ride that was filled with Ejector air, and Hades, I'm too scared to ride because I fear how bad it'll be on me and not because of it's height or speed,

  31. Obama is and always designated a 'one-term president.' His job is to become the scapegoat for all the repressed white rage the Rightards felt, but couldn't express, against the busheviks. Now a conveniently colored person has happened along who seems not only willing but eager to absorb all the reponsibility for the last 50 years of GOP/Party of Property clusterfux. By 2012, Obama won't be able to defeat ANY GOPuke: Palin, Huckabee, Romney…well, mebbee Bobby Jindal or Michael Steele… That's the plan…

  32. X townMen vi får inte glömma bort att vi fick ett nytillskott häromåret, i samband med flodvågen i Sydostasien (som efter vad jag har förstått orsakades av förra regeringen). Den största staden på ön Phuket heter på den svenska delen av webben visserligen oftast Phuket City eller Phuket Stad, men mycket ofta också Phuket Town. Nåra towns tror jag inte vi har haft tidigare.

  33. Thanks for the quick reply. Are you sure that there are institutions who won’t require your personal guarantee for new companies like these? Also, how much more (on average) have you seen a C or S corp receive than an LLC in initial funding?Cashman

  34. Mohon penjelasan :klo dilihat dari t4 yg sy rencanakan untuk membuka usaha goodtea, kayaknya cocoknya pake paket ini (mini booth). tp saya masih ragu apa pilihan saya sudah tepat.bisa diberikan penjelasan tentang kelebihan dan kekurangan dari paket ini?klo saya berencana membuka counter di daerah manado, kira2 berapa ongkos kirim n harga paketnya?mohon penjelasan tentang jawaban saya dikirim via email ke terima kasih

  35. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with some percent to pressure the message house a little bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

  36. Os organizadores desse encontro, não mantiveram um processo continuo. embora meu nome esteja incompleto, isso pouco importa, mas as mudança de ultima hora, repercutiu de forma negativa para nós da SEJUS. fui avisado da mudança, ás oito horas, e por isso, fiz o que não gosto, chegar atrasado.

  37. Thanks for disclosing that information Victor. I’m not surprised that you’ve seen an instant negative effect in your AdWords. If your ads are not in first place, they become less visible now that there’s more focus on the first position.

  38. Wonderful Blog!Do your parents still live there?I grew up a navy brat so we never lived anywhere longer than about 2years.My partner and I have lived in Palm Springs about a decade now. The longest time I have lived anyplace.I too grew up hanging out with older folks. As a result I have been with the same partner 20years who is almost 20years older…well it seems to work!Thank you for the blogging! Keep it up!!~ Read

  39. J’espère que cette idée qui a un objectif appert d’augmenter les effectifs par classe, comme les sardines dans l’évolution de l’invention d’Appert, n’aboutira pas, donc on n’écoutera pas à l’Élisée la phrase : « Il appert ».

  40. Eu as pleca din Romania Am mai fost plecata si as pleca in continuare. Nu pentru ca merg lucrurile prost, pentru ca sunt convisa ca se pot si se vor schimba, dar ma intereseaza altceva decat reconstructia unei sistem nefunctional. Ma consider in primul rand un cetatean al lumii si apoi al tarii in care m-am nascut si nu cred ca Romania e singura tara in care chiar poti sa faci diferenta, dar asta e o convingere personala. Cred ca e vorba si de un soi de patriotism (in sensul strict de atasament fata de loc) in toata povestea asta, pe care eu nu il am …Dar m-as intoarce oricand pentru oameni dragi

  41. : 5 commentaires plus haut Mac OS X repose sur un développement Unix/Linux, hein, donc « plutôt libre » en général. C’est la couche de présentation qui est pleine de restrictions. Les commandes Unix sont donc natives OS X… un régal pour les amateurs de /find/

  42. What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say.

  43. Have you read "Down and Out in Paris and London" by Orwell? It is a great book about what it is like to live homeless. Some of the homeless men and women in NW D.C. sell a newspaper to passing pedestrians that has summaries of how they became homeless. The stories are so sad. Two of my neighbors recently had to start living in a local shelter because they lost their jobs and couldn't afford rent. It makes you grateful to have a vast network of family, friends, and the Church to rely on. Not everyone has those things.

  44. Exactly. A shot without movement a lot of the times can be extremely powerful, but what makes it such an interesting art form is that you can actually choose to include movement to make a statement. I was actually really disappointed with the Academy last year for giving Avatar the award. There was nothing special about it at all (a lot of the great visual aspects were more in the art direction than the photography).Also, Claudio Miranda did Benjamin Button.

  45. Hej PetuniaDu er heldig med din turkammerat, og så flot han er!Min turkammerat kan ikke li' alt for mange udfordringer, så en gang imellem kunne det være dejligt at ha' en Jølle.Meget dejlige billeder du har lagt ud.Mange hilsnerHanna

  46. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of
    your great post. Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  47. I don’t buy into the weird-looking creative thing. To me it’s no different than displaying your creativity by having wacky toys on your desk. How about Richard Flintham? He’s pretty normal looking. Steve Jobs? Steven Spielberg? Charlie Kaufman? The guys from Pleix look incredibly normal (but they do have a weird name). I think normal is the new creative gold-standard.

  48. May28 Hi there, i just needed to drop you a line to say that i thoroughly enjoyed this detailed post of yours, I have subscribed to your RSS feeds and have skimmed a few of your posts before but this one really stood out for me. I know that I am just a stranger to you but I figured you might appreciate the admiration Take care and keep blogging.

  49. The casual laid back atmosphere the sand and sea offer is absolutely certain to loosen up even the tightest individual. Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines are the most highly visited nations by people who consider holidaying to the beach as their summer staple. They offer more class and luxury for those with no budget restrictions, since they're rather more high-priced than other beach holidays.

  50. For instance counter-jihad college students could infiltrate the YAF and turn it to the counter-jihad. The Intercollegiate Studies Institute could bu turned. The YAF used to be the counter to the SDS, as was ISI.

  51. Oh yeah, I’ll second the “best ever in Prague” label. Best burger in town by a country mile. I’ve had LOTS of these over the last several months; they are not just good, but CONSISTENTLY good (unlike some very expensive burgers at other restaurants in this town).People should note that this is a quite different burger from Bohemia Bagel’s other branches (which are good too); if you want the best, you’ve gotta make the pilgrimage to Holesovice.

  52. We shouldn’t be addressing the deniers as skeptics. “Skepticism” is a term that the deniers have taken for themselves, because it gives them an air of scientific respectability, but they are not true skeptics. They are contrarians or denialists. Contrarians do not have scientific respectability.This is laziness. This is saying that we won’t make the effort to persuade those who disagree with us – because that would require us to respect them in order to engage them.

  53. 182תודה אופיר. לא חשבתי על נזק למדחס. ג’ניה – אין כאן הערכה גסה. הטווח הוא מאוד מאוד גדול. זה תלוי במזגן, בעד כמה המערכת אוטומטית, כמה זמן רוצים שהמערכת תחזיק מעמד, ביטוח, אחריות על רכיבים ועוד המון גורמים.21

  55. Big hugs to you! I am still exhausted and trying to pull myself together and recover from our IEP a week and a half ago. Oh, how I hate the vague goals and the crazy pushback. Take care of yourself.

  56. Rewriting urls is simply not necessary and thank you John and Google for finally dispelling this ridiculous myth.If your worried about duplicate content problems with dynamic urls simply nofollow the duplicates, leaving just one path for the bot to index.If Google’s PhDs couldn’t figure out how to read dynamic urls,… well that’s just absurd.

  59. I would like to consider the ability of thanking you for that professional instruction I have continually
    enjoyed checking out your site. I am looking forward to the commencement of my school research and the entire groundwork would never have
    been complete without dropping by your blog. If I
    might be of any assistance to others, I would be
    happy to help through what I have gained from here.

  60. Ico, olha como são as coisas..Lembro que no ano passado o Heidfeld foi o piloto que mais vezes criticou o Petrov, tanto por este ser pagante como por sua "deficiencia" técnica…E agora são companheiros de equipe…Quero ver o que ele vai falar do russo agora…heheAbraço! Ótimas análises..

  61. SpinneyBigBird1095 on February 5, 2011 To me, this is one of the un-appreciated songs in Avenue Q. When people think of this show, they think of The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist but this is acllauty one of the songs that makes the musical! I am guilty of not noticing how awesome this song is, but I am listening to versions online, and I love it!

  62. Hi Becky,The silver trays are so beautiful and so glad that you are keeping them and not going into a garage sale.Congratulations on your 33rd wedding anniversary and wishing you all the best for many many more happy years together.HugsCarolyn

  63. Joillakin ihmisillä yksinkertaisesti järki sumenee kun he kohtaavat jotain mitä eivät voi ymmärtää ja hyväksyä. Tällöin mielestä putkahtaa mitä mielikuvituksellisimpia ja vainoharhaisia ajatuksia täysin ilman suodatusta. Tällaisilta henkilöiltä puuttuu kyky (ja halu?) käsitellä asiaa rationaalisesti, sekä asettua toisen asemaan. Lieneekö kyse mielenhäiriöstä.Yes, joku hoksasi!

  64. I can’t believe you didn’t get sick. I’m getting me some of that gluten ease stuff.And, btw, I was eating out last month and ordered ice cream for my dessert…feeling so proud I’d found something GF. And only after they brought it to my plate did I remember that I’m now lactose intolerant. Oh well, I ate it anyway. I paid the price a few hours later, but it sure was good at the time:)

  65. Jim, how can you be “obsessed” and “not less interested” at the same time?I realized the other day that my place in the ward continuum (what a weirdly spelled word) is that of the little old lady that people don’t expect much of…..which made me kind of sad because I kick butt at serving. But it also made me kind of delighted to think of the young women in our ward who are stepping up.

  66. Et tainnut ymmärtää tai olin epäselvä. Pointti oli se että jos toiminta on oikeasti eettistä ei motiiveilla ole väliä. Tuo kassiesimerkki on eri asia. Siinä käytännössä, tahallaan tai tahattomasti, johdettiin harhaan. Kusetus on aina kusetusta.

  67. highly deemed written content…It’s really a good cool in add-on in order to helpful percentage including information. I’m pleased someone propagated where helpful details close to. You will have to keep any individual informed using these types of services. Appreciate this planned …

  68. That’s so nice of you to say! I’m totally honest with how I do things. I hate the people who lie with their numbers and pretend have a lifestyle they don’t have. Here I share lessons I have learned but I also apply those lessons to my life. I don’t write about something I don’t believe in. Now I have this result to show for my efforts. That’s really cool! I plan on keeping it up and coming up with new projects. Thanks Julia!!

  69. magnifique, grandiose, extraordinaire, avec malgré tout le son Pink Floyd sans Gilmour, MAIS…… mais je n’ai jamais aimé cette idée de venir coller le concept du ‘Mur’ de Waters sur celui de Berlin, qui n’avait rien à voir avec.

  70. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve take into account your stuff previous to and you
    are simply extremely fantastic. I actually like what you have obtained right here, certainly like what
    you’re saying and the best way wherein you are saying it.
    You’re making it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it smart.
    I can not wait to learn far more from you. That is really a wonderful
