Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream together:
1 pound of butter
4 cups brown sugar {dark or dark/light mixed}

Beat in:
5 eggs {6 if they're smaller}
3 or more TBSP real vanilla {don't use fake stuff!}

Sift together:
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt {or a little more}
2 tsp baking soda
a little nutmeg if you like it

And add to the butter sugar egg mixture. This will be a very stiff

4 cups rolled oats
4 cups Wheaties cereal {or wheat-based equivalent not cornflakes!}
2 pkg chocolate chips {semi-sweet or milk choc. or mix...}
Nuts if you like them {1 1/2 cups walnuts or pecans} Mix thoroughly.

Use about 2 TBSP batter per cookie, 12 to a std. sized sheet. Bake
8 - 12 min {or a little longer if necessary} at 350 deg F. Makes a
bunch but they never seem to last...
