Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a baking sheet.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, kosher salt, rolled oats, and cinnamon.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Using an electric hand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and beat unit well combined.
Using a rubber spatula, gradually add the flour mixture into the batter-sugar mixture. Mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate and walnuts/macadamia nuts, if using.
Spoon tablespoon-size balls of dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between the dough balls. Bake the cookies for 12 to 13 minutes or until just beginning to color.
Remove the cookies from the oven and sprinkle each one with a few grains of sea salt--it's really important to do this while the cookies are hot so the salt sticks. Let the cookies cool for a couple minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. repeat with the remaining dough.
