Yummy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups butter (I use unsalted for baking)
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar, packed
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal, divided
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
32 ounces chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
3 cups chopped nuts (I don't use) (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cream together, using a stand mixer: butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla. Blend well. Blend 2 1/2 cups of the oatmeal in a food processor or blender. In a separate large bowl, mix together: flour, all of the oatmeal (2 1/2 cups processed and 2 1/2 cups whole), salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry mixture, on low - a bit at a time, to the wet ingredients and blend together until fully incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and blend in on low. (Add nuts here, too, if you want. ). Scoop balls onto cookie sheets, spaced a few inches apart. I like to make them about 1 inch balls. Bake for about 10 minutes, depending on your oven. Get the gallon of milk ready!
