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.
PARLIAMENT CHUNKADELIC 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
- Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease your baking sheets.
- Combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a bowl. Beat until creamy. Then beat in egg and vanilla; set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
