Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Whisk together both flours, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Set aside.

Put butter and both sugars into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy.

Reduce speed to low. Add egg and vanilla. Mix until combined. Mix in banana.

Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in oats, chocolate chunks, and walnuts.

Using a 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 inches apart.

Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown and just set, 12 to 13 minutes.

Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Store in airtight containers at room temperature up to 2 days.
