Directions for: Brown Butter Oatmeal Cookies


10 Tbsp unsalted butter

2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/3 sugar

1 egg

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.
