Seconds before being devoured

These cookies came out perfect, and were eaten within minutes of being out of the oven.

The only changes I made were, I used triticale flour, I used a mix of nuts (almonds, pecans, brazil nuts, and hazel nuts, and I only used about 6oz of mini chocolate chips.

Also, the cook time was more like 10 - 12 mins, but that may be due to the altitude.

"A delicious blend of all your favorite flavors, these sturdy little cookies vanish almost instantly!"
Ingredients

1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup mashed very ripe banana
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until walnuts are toasted and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool; coarsely chop.

4. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until pale and fluffy; add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until just combined. Beat banana into creamed butter mixture until just combined.

5. Stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until dough is just combined; fold in oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing each mound about 1 1/2 inch apart.

6. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 6 minutes. Rotate pans and bake until edges are browned, 6 to 7 more minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Infestation!!!
Each year, at the end of October, during the migration of sports stars, princesses, zombies, and super heroes from the warm grasslands of Summerfun, to the cooler, dead leaf covered grounds of Snickers-O-Plenty, St. Francis faces a day of glitter and face paint inundation. A tsunami of cuteness and terror, of purple wigs and blood we all must withstand, and none of us are truly prepared for.

The migrating swarm landed and worked it's way down Main street this morning, and the townsfolk pr

After seeing the 4-28-17 video of the object moving across the moon, @ http://www.latest-ufo-sightings.net/2017/04/ufo-caught-moving-across-moon-baffles-viewers.html it reminded me of a similar video I had shot on 10-22-14 north of St. Francis, KS at sunset.
