  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 1/4 cups Total cereal
  • 1/2 cup whole walnuts
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup packed granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 5.6 oz/160 grams
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus an extra pinch of salt
  • 5 oz semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate cut into chunks or about ¾ cup of chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In bowl of food processor, process oats until fine. Add cereal and walnuts to processor with ground oatmeal and pulse until cereal is finely crushed and nuts are fairly well chopped.
  • Cream butter and both sugars in a mixing bowl using high speed of an electric mixer; add egg and vanilla and beat just until egg is mixed in. Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir well to mix. Scrape sides of bowl and stir in flour mixture and cereal mixture.
  • Shape into 1 ½ inch balls, then press the balls lightly so they have slightly flat tops. That is, unless you want rounded tops. Place on cookie sheets, spacing 2 ½ inches apart and bake for 15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
