From Family Fun magazine, May 2006. You won't regret making them!
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, blend the butter and sugars with an electric mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Add the eggs and continue to beat until fluffy, about 1.5 minutes.
Blend in the vanilla extract.
Using a wooden spoon, stir the dry mixture into the butter mixture one half at a time.
Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Refrigerate the dough for 1-2 hours. (and taste some - the dough is delicious!)
Heat the oven to 350*. (Here it says to line a large, preferably light-colored baking sheet with aluminum foil, then grease the foil. You don't have to do this if you are using a stone.)
Using a scant 1/4 cup per cookie, shape the dough into balls and place them on the cookie sheet sheet about 2 inches apart.
Use your fingertips to flatten each ball to 1/3 inch thick.
Bake the cookies n the center oven rack for 13-14 minutes, turning the sheet about halfway through. When they're done, the cookies should be very lightly browned and still look moist. Don't overbake them.
Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack.
