Wednesday, May 10, 2023: Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
May 14th, 2023 by Alex

Today I wanted to make something sweet but sort-of healthy (it has oats!) and I discovered this recipe for brown butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that looked delicious on the fresh bean bakery website. I also like that this makes a relatively small batch — about 8-10 large cookies. You can always double or triple the recipe if you want more. The ingredients, most of which are pantry basics, are as follows:

  • 113 g unsalted butter (½ c.)
  • 100 g light brown sugar (½ c.)
  • 50 g granulated sugar (¼ c.)
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 130 g all-purpose flour (1 c. + 1 ⅓ tbsp.)
  • 60 g rolled oats (⅔ c.)
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 130 g semi-sweet chocolate chips (¾ c.)
  • Start by preheating the oven to 350°F, then brown the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Definitely keep an eye on it because you do not want it to burn. When the butter is amber with small brown specks pour into a mixing bowl and cool in the freezer. (Now is a good time to weigh ingredients)
  • Once the butter has cooled, whisk in both sugars.
  • Whisk in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
  • Add in the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, and fold the mixture together until a few flour streaks remain.
  • Add in the chopped chocolate and fold just until no flour streaks remain.

Scoop dough on to a lined cooking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes, until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown.

If you want perfectly circular cookies, immediately after taking the cookies out of the oven, take a bowl and swirl it around over them to make them a little more uniform and circular. Allow the cookies to rest on the hot baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack…enjoy!
