  2. Cream butter and sugars.
  3. Blend in eggs, add powdered oatmeal and mix.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Sift salt, baking powder and soda, flour. Add in batches to creamed ingredients.
  6. Batter will be very stiff – you might need to use a spoon or your hands.
  7. Mix in chips, grated chocolate and nuts.
  8. Place golf-ball sized pieces of dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Do not mash flat.
