1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Makes about 36

To toast nuts, spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake in a 350 oven for about 10 minutes.

To make cookies, preheat oven to 375. Whisk together both flours, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Put butters and both sugars into separate bowl and mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Reduce speed to low. Add egg and vanilla; mix until combined. Reduce speed to low. Mix in banana. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in oats, chocolate chunks, and walnuts.

Using a 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies, rotating sheets about half way through, until golden brown and just set, 12-13 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely.

Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 2 days or frozen.
