Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I really LOVE these cookies. Yes, they are chocolate chip cookies but not just any chocolate chip cookies. Instead, they are jazzed up with the addition of ground walnuts and rolled oats. I have to thank incookiehaven.blogspot.sg for sharing this recipe, which she had taken pains to modify from another recipe. I didn’t follow her recipe to the T, since I didn’t have the exact same ingredients. For example, I used plain flour instead of organic unbleached flour (which sounds so much healthier!) and I used rolled oats instead of instant oats. The results were still awesome. I especially love the nutty crispiness of the cookie. When you bite into them, you get a certain grittiness which is so satisfying. Oh, another must-try is this: According to incookiehaven, you can replace the dark chocolate chips with white chocolate chips and add a drop of raspberry jam on top of each cookie, and you will have Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Cookie!

These don't stay long in the cookie jar.

This is the recipe (lifted from the blog):
