Ingredients

  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup rolled oats
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 Ounces dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 Cup walnuts, chopped
  • Large flake sea salt, for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and kosher salt.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter. Beat together the butter and sugars until they are light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, fully incorporating them after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

With the stand mixer on low, add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks and walnuts.

Spoon the cookie dough in 2-tablespoon sized balls onto the lined baking sheet, making sure there is a 2-inch gap between each cookie.

Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes.                             

As soon as the cookies come out the oven, sprinkle them with a few grains of sea salt. Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes, before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
