1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2 Cream together, using a stand mixer: butter, sugar and brown sugar.
3 Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla. Blend well.
4 Blend 2 1/2 cups of the oatmeal in a food processor or blender.
5 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.
6 Add the dry mixture, on low–a bit at a time, to the wet ingredients and blend together until fully incorporated.
7 Add the chocolate chips and blend in on low. (Add nuts here, too, if you want.).
8 Scoop balls onto cookie sheets, spaced a few inches apart. I like to make them about 1 inch balls.
9 Bake for about 10 minutes, depending on your oven.
