The Brown Sugar gives these cookies such an earthy country flavor, that's impossible to resist. Even if you think you don't like Oatmeal Cookies, you at least have to give these a try. They are sweet, plus the crunch of the walnuts is totally unexpected. They're not gooey, they're crunchy, perfect with a glass of your favorite milk.
You don't have to use the two different flours, you can just use whatever you have on hand. But if you use all white flour, the cookies will be paler in color.
These cookies are obviously not Vegan, but you can substitute the egg with an Egg Replacer. What may also work, is add one teaspoon of vinegar plus a tablespoon of water to the mix, instead of the egg.
