10 Tbsp unsalted butter
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
½ tsp vanilla extract
1-3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chips, raisins, chopped walnuts, coconut or any combination
1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat until bubbling subsides and butter browns, about 5 minutes. Strain butter through a coffee filter and cool to room temperature.
3. Beat butter with brown sugar, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir oats, flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt to combine. Add oat mixture to butter mixture and blend. Stir in choice of chocolate chips, raisins, walnuts, and/or coconut. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared tray and bake in the center of oven for about 12 minutes, until browned. Let cool for 5 minutes, then gently remove from tray onto a rack to cool completely.
