Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Baking Time: 12–15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 14 cookies

Ingredients:

¾ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup granulated sugar

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

¼ cup unsalted butter softened

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 large egg

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup chopped toasted walnuts

½ cup raisins or chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Arrange chopped walnuts on a small cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake for 8–10 minutes in the preheated oven. Set it aside to cool.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  4. In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter, vanilla and egg. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add flour into thirds. Then add salt — if you are using salted butter, omit the salt. Add oats and mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly blended into a sticky cookie dough.
  6. Fold in toasted walnuts. Add raisins or chocolate chips — optional.
  7. Scoop a tablespoon of the cookie dough and release it onto the prepared baking sheet with another tablespoon. Allow sufficient spacing between cookies of 2-inches apart.
