  • 1/2 cup butter browned or melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips semi or bittersweet


  • Melt or brown the 1/2 cup butter. To melt- microwave in 30 second increments in a microwavable safe bowl.
  • To brown the butter, start by cutting the cold butter into small pieces. Add the butter to a sauce pan and melt over low heat. When the butter starts to foam grab a whisk and start stirring. This will help your butter from melting too fast and possibly burning the milk solids. Continue stirring and watch as the white milk solids separate and sink to the bottom of the pan. When they turn a golden brown color and it smells super nutty, take the pan off the heat. Cool. If the milk solids turn black, strain them and use the rest of the melted butter for the recipe.

  • Add the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and chocolate leaving behind one handful of the chocolate chips. Mix the batter with a spatula just until it comes together. It will be thick but should be uniform.

  • Preheat the oven now to 350°F. Scoop out the dough using a cookie scoop, ice cream scoop, or tablespoon and place on a cookie sheet. Press left over chocolate chips onto each dough ball. Don't be afraid to press them in! Freeze for 20 minutes.

Substitute quick cook oats for the old fashioned oats but check on the cookies after 16 minutes. They may be softer and less chewy.
Use semi or bittersweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
