Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yields18 Servings

 1 cup plant butter or coconut oil (or a combination)
 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
 1/4 cup sugar
 2 tsp vanilla
 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 1/2 tsp fine salt
 1 tsp baking soda
 1/3 cup boiling water
 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned or quick oats
 1-2 cups (or so) chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F.


In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugars and vanilla for 1-2 minutes, until pale and light. Stir in the flour and salt (or beat it in on low speed). Stir the baking soda into the boiling water and stir or beat it in too, along with the oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.


Drop the dough in large spoonfuls (or us a scoop, or roll into balls) and if you like, press an extra chunk of chocolate (or a few chocolate chips) into the top. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until deep golden around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
