1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 to 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup (about 8 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Make the mix:
In a 1-quart canning jar, layer the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt (a wide-mouth canning funnel makes this a little easier). Shake jar just slightly
to level layer. Add half of the brown sugar, then half of the nuts and half of the chocolate chips.

Repeat layers with remaining brown sugar, chocolate
chips, and nuts.
