Chewy Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies (V&GF)

My week wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t bake some chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is pretty much a combination of the Almondy-Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Quick and Easy Wholewheat Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. If it wasn’t entirely obvious already, James and I have a penchant for chocolate chip cookies.
