Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Tuesday Friends!

A cookie brings joy to (almost) everyone, the cookie itself has a childlike innocence. especially Nutty Chocolate Chip cookies are my go-to cookie on days of sadness, joy, or in a great mood with a sweet tooth. 

Maybe mom did let you pour in the chocolate chips (then starts yelling at you once they’ve been mixed and your pick little pieces 0ut with the dough). Or maybe you did it with your nana to optimize your recipe for the school bakeoff, and of course, you come out as reining champ. (Thanks Nana)

Although throughout December I did a ton of baking with everyone in the family hanging out the recipes didn’t last very long because I was always baking. (all those recipes were made before this blog was conceived. 

This is going to be yummy because I’ve got the perfect game plan for setting out recipes for all foodie walks of life. I’m letting my readers decide where this blog goes, so I count on all of you guys to keep me creative and in an aligned space to want to create.

When I walked into the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for my cookies I was drop-kicked in the back of my nose by smells of cinnamon and gingerbread. So I accidentally stood in the way because I like to connect my senses with my surroundings. 

Little bundles of cinnamon-scented pinecones and samples of gingerbread being handed out just so happen to be the kick in the face when i came in. So I was pleased with myself since my environmental questions had been answered I went along with my trip to get the walnuts, chocolate chips, and possibly a jar of Nutella. (That’s in another post).

Are you here to check out the Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookies? Well, they’re all gone at my house because my family loves sweets and we had people over on Sunday for dinner.

So there was no saving them, RIP in my stomach and 4 other people. You were a delicious, satisfying, and sweet little piece of heaven.

Sometimes you feel like a nut, but sometimes you don’t. Variety is the spice of nice. These walnut chocolate chip cookies will make you fall in love and want a nut. 

The crunchy walnut and melted chocolate chips inside a cookie are perfect. I’m sure you can use any other nut you’d like but I was craving some walnuts and chocolate.

You might see a few healthy desserts but today isn’t that day. At all!


  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, lightly toasted (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and position racks in the middle and lower thirds of the oven. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking soda and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer beat the butter at medium speed until creamy. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Arrange tablespoons of the cookie dough at least 1 1/2 inches apart on 2 large baking sheets and bake for about 11 minutes for soft and chewy cookies, about 13 minutes for chewy cookies, or about 16 minutes for crisp cookies.
  4. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring them to wire racks.
