These Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies are bursting with delicious mix-ins and are guaranteed to please a crowd.

Hi friends!

I’m adding a classic cookie recipe to your arsenal today. Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie – a tried and true staple that never fails. For me, that’s these Chewy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. But it’s also good to have a few more go-to recipes, usually some with fun mix-ins!

Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s where this recipe comes in! It’s a classic chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe with hints of cinnamon and lots of chopped walnuts, chocolate chips and oats mixed in.

If you, like me, do not actually love walnuts, you could swap in pecans like I often do! You could even use slivered almonds or chopped peanuts.

You could also swap chocolate chips for raisins for a different spin.

Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie Recipe

Let’s talk about the ingredients:

  • Butter – softened to room temperature, not melted!
  • Brown sugar – helps make them chewy
  • White sugar
  • Eggs – we use one egg + one egg yolk for a chewier cookie
  • Vanilla and cinnamon- for flavor
  • Flour – I use white whole wheat flour but AP flour is fine. You can also use a 1:1 gluten-free baking blend
  • Baking soda
  • Oats – I use rolled oats
  • Walnuts – chopped to the desired size. I chop mine fairly small
  • Chocolate chips
