Browned Butter....I never knew you till now...

What a delightful invention browned butter is. Nutty and sweet giving everything it touches a new flavor. This may sound like a love letter, and maybe it is. Browned butter's awesomeness was everything I dreamed it would be, and while I was intimidated it was so easy! This was an adventure and I am so glad I took it! And now for the recipe!

little dollops of yumminess and yes that is a glass of milk; they are rich!

Browned Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bites
adapted from Tip Top Shape


1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of loosely packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup oats (not quick-cook)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips


In a small sauce pan, on medium heat, heat the butter constantly whisking until browned. (It should resemble caramel color and emit a nutty smell) Remove from heat and continue to whisk for 30 seconds. Let butter cool completely before you use it.

In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and oats and set aside.

Once the butter has cooled mix it with the two sugars in a large bowl. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and combine with hands until a dough forms. 

Chill covered in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat over to 375F

Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. 

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the edges and bottoms are golden brown.

Enjoy with coffee! Or milk or anything because you will enjoy these!
