Servings 4


  • 1½ all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • 7 ounces Nature's Eats Walnut Pieces (1½ cups)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix flour, oatmeal, and baking soda in a medium bowl. With a mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Reduce to low speed. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs, and beat for 1 minute until well combined. Add flour mixture gradually, beating until just combined. Stir in chocolate and Nature’s Eats Walnut Nuggets. Cover, and refrigerate until cold, about 30 minutes.
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until cookies are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the center, 14 to 16 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack. Let cool.
