Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups raw rolled oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat together the butter and sugars until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat the eggs, one at a time, mixing until incorporated. Mix in the vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking soda, salt and rolled oats.

With the mixer on low speed slowly add in the flour ingredients, mixing until just combined.  Gently fold in the nuts & chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake until slightly golden, about 12-13 minutes. Cool on a wire cooling rack.
