Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder (optional but delicious)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. In a blender or food processor, grind oats until fine. Transfer to a small bowl, then stir together with the whole wheat flour. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, espresso powder, cinnamon, and salt until smooth. Beat in the baking soda, vinegar, and egg.
  3. By hand, stir in the flour mixture, then the chocolate chips and walnuts, just until combined. For the best results, cover and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Place rack in the center of oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line to baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat mat. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheets, then bake for 9 minutes, until the bottoms of the cookies are barely beginning to brown. The cookies may appear underdone. Remove cookies from oven, let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
