Oatmeal Cookies with nuts, no raisins (as preferred by Benny)

This one's simple! Use the recipe found beneath the lid of the Quaker Oats tube-shaped container. Omit raisins and add 3/4 cup toasted walnut pieces.* I also like to stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips—isn't everything a little bit better with chocolate? I've served these at nearly every reading I've done for Eating Heaven, with nary a complaint or leftover.

*To toast walnuts (or any nuts for that matter), simply toss into a dry skillet on medium heat and jiggle occasionally. When you start to smell the nuts' fragrance, they're done!
