Honey Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Children, this recipe is my own creation. Be blessed with good health as you bake these cookies up for your loved ones!!!
Honey Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened at room temp.
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup honey
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup plus 3 Tbsp. unbleached white flour
1 cup instant oatmeal, uncooked
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix, add the honey, mix. Add the eggs, mix. Add the flours, mix and the oatmeal, mix. Lastly, the chips and nuts. Mix just to blend these into batter.
I use a cookie scoop (which equals about 2 teaspoons of batter) and scoop dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes. They will be golden and a bit soft right out of oven. I put the baking sheet on the stove, leaving the cookies to cool before I transfer them to the cooling rack.
Use a timer, while baking and adjust time to your oven, to get the best bake results. Do a test batch with the first tray. Check on the cookies after 8 minutes, because with the good proportion of honey, they could burn on the bottoms if the oven is too hot.
