In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar on
medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, then the
vanilla. Beat until well combined.
Put the oatmeal into the blender in small batches and blend until almost the
consistency of flour. Combine it in a separate bowl with the flour, salt, baking
powder and baking soda. When well mixed, add it to the butter, sugar and egg
Add the chocolate chunks and the pecans to the above combination of dry and wet
ingredients. Mix only until well combined.
Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches
between cookies. Bake at 375° F for approximately 9 minutes, depending on the
size of your spoonful. Check first batch about every 3 minutes until golden
brown. Cool on a wire rack.
