    1/2 cup rolled oats
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    3/4 cups brown sugar, packed
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp lemon juice
    2 eggs
    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grind oats in a foor processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Cream togethers the butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice in another bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth.

-Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough, mix by hand until ingredients are well incorporated. Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. You donít need to press the dough flat.

-Bake for 15 to 18 minutes (or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle). Store in a sealed container once cooled to keep soft. For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking. Makes roughly 25 cookies.

* I know the 1/4 cup portion sounds like a lot but they will even out!!
