Add flavor and crunch to a traditional oatmeal cookie by stirring in chopped pecans and chocolate candy bar pieces.
Process oats in a blender or food processor until ground.
Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until blended.
Combine ground oats, flour, and next 3 ingredients. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate and pecans.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375° for 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown; remove to wire racks to cool.
I didn't process the oats, and they're still wonderful. I didn't have pecans on hand, but I'm sure it makes the cookies better!
