I modified a recipe from IHeartNapTime.net to come up with these yummy cookies. The vanilla pudding keeps the cookies soft – and the oat flour adds some texture to the cookie. I LOVE the original recipe – but the nut lovers in my house wanted a bit of a variation – and I wanted to double it.
My husband, who thinks most dessert is ‘too sweet’ likes these with ONLY walnuts – instead of with chocolate and walnuts. I Split the batter and mix in 2C Chocolate Chips and 1 C walnuts into 1/2 and 1 1/2 C Walnuts ONLY into the other half. Everyone is happy!
