"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal (measure and then process to powder in food processor or blender)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnut, pecan or macadamia)
12 oz chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, and/or white chocolate)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars together. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together. Add flour mixture to batter. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips and optional raisins, and coconut.

Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 6-7 minutes. Cool on cookies sheet until easy to remove and then transfer to wax paper to finish cooling.

Note – The key to this recipe is to not over bake the cookies. If you’re doing it right the cookies will not look done when you take them out of the oven. The cookies will firm up as they cool.
