Combine the flour with the baking soda and salt. Place the funnel over the jar, and add the flour mixture to the bottom of the jar. Pack the flour in tightly. If some flour clings to the side of the jar, wipe with a dry paper towel after flattening.
Add the instant quick-cooking oats to the jar, and pack in as tightly as you can.
Add the sugar to the jar. It's ok if it sifts a bit into the oat layer.
Add the brown sugar to the jar, and pack it firmly. The brown sugar plays an important role of keeping the flour and sugar layer in place, while forming a firm structure for the chocolate chips to rest on.
Add the chocolate chips. They will sit loosely on top of the jar.
Finally, add the chopped walnuts to the jar and fill to the top.
Wipe the rim of the jar with a dry towel, and screw on the lid. Decorate as desired, print out and attach the recipe to the jar.
Attach the following recipe to the jar:
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
You will need: 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened, 1 large egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Contents in the jar: 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 1/4 cups instant quick-cooking oats, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease baking sheets, or line with parchment paper. Cream butter, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl until fluffy. Add the ingredients from the jar, and stir well until combined. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets, placing 2 inches apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven until edges are just browned. The center will still appear uncooked. Cool slightly, remove from baking sheet, and cool on a wire rack. Makes about 24 cookies.
