I made these cookies this weekend. Everyone loved them! I love cookies with oatmeal. And we love dark chocolate. The browned butter definitely adds something special. It enhances the flavor of everything!
Browned Butter Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
3 cups old-fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring as butter begins to simmer and foams up. Continue until butter turns a dark amber color and brown specks appear at the bottom of the pan (you will see them as you continue to whisk). Once browned (and be careful not to burn) remove from heat and let cool.
Meanwhile, mix flour, soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl and set aside.
Once cooled slightly, pour browned butter into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat in sugars for several minutes until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat for another minute or two.
Stir in dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Add dark chocolate chips and oats. Spoon by heaping tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges slightly brown. Let cool for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
