WOW Chocolate Chip Cookies

Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever bought an ingredient and forgot which recipe you bought if for? I bought a bag of Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour for a recipe I wanted to make, but then forgot which recipe it was.  So I decided to make one of the recipes listed on the bag.

The recipe: WOW Chocolate Chip Cookie
1/2 cup non hydrogenated margarine
1/3 cup oil (I used canola)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup milk (soy,rice,cow)
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 1/4 cups regular rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Cream together margarine, oil and sugar until very well blended. Add in milk and vanilla and blend.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oats, baking powder and soda. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
When half blended, add in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
Mix everything until just blended, do not over mix.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Place by the tablespoon on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 - 12 minutes.
Makes 2 dozen cookies

My notes:  I used butter, I added one mashed, ripened banana. The chocolate chips used were the large Nestle Dark Chocolate  Morsels, 53% cacao, I used 1 cup of nuts, 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Gadgets used: Kitchenaid mixer, paddle and pouring shield; silpat mat; cookie scoop 11 1/2" x 16 1/2"cookie sheet, (measured from the inside of the tray.)

Raw cookies ready to bake!

Cooked and ready to eat!

Second batch ready to go. First batch cooling.
I must admit eating quite a few hot, melty cookies.
They were moist, chewy with a slight hint of banana flavor.

Should you decide to make any purchases from Amazon (not just kitchen gadgets),
I would appreciate it if you would start from the Amazon Search Box on my blog.
Thank you!
