I've had this recipe for so long I don't remember where I got it. Sometimes, old-fashioned recipes are the best. This is one of them.

I've had this recipe for so long I don't remember where I got it. I've always loved oatmeal cookies, but adding chocolate chips and walnuts takes them to a whole new level. Using oil instead of butter makes them lighter, too.

Chewy and chocolaty, these cookies also have a great crunch that comes from the walnuts and oatmeal. They're so decadent, you can't eat just one.

If you or someone in your family are allergic to nuts, simply leave them out. They'll taste just as good!

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour 15 min
Cook time: 12 min
Ready in: 1 hour 27 min
Yields: 3 or 4 dozen

Prep Time

The prep time includes storing the batter for one hour in the refrigerator before baking. This step helps the cookies keep a nice shape while baking—and helps prevent them from flattening out in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup flour, sifted with the baking soda and salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon each baking soda and salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans or almonds), chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg. Add brown and white sugars and beat until frothy. Add oil gradually, continuing to beat until well blended. With a wooden spoon, stir in flour sifted with baking soda and salt.
  3. Add oatmeal, chocolate chips and nuts. Mix well. Store the batter covered in the refrigerator for one hour.
  4. Drop by rounded teaspoonsfuls on lightly greased or parchment paper-lined cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes.

        This sounds wonderful, nutritious and delicious. I have tried oatmeal cookies earlier, but your combination of ingredients sounds interesting.

        This would be great idea for the children snacks.

        Thanks for sharing the helpful details.

        It will soon be cookie season and this easy one would add a great deal of yum and attractiveness to a holiday cookie plate, not to mention they would be so good any time any where!

        Hi Linda, Yes, that is a great combination. That's why I called them Old Fashion. I think any old fashion food is the best.

        Blessings to you.

        Oatmeal, walnuts, and chocolate chips sounds like a great combination. I think it would be very hard for me to eat just one of your cookies!
