Makes about 2 dozen cookies


  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup chocolate chips, raisins, chopped walnuts, coconut or any combination


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 375F (190C) 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.


It’s important that the butter has cooled completely, otherwise the cookies will spread too much when they bake
The melted butter is my little trick to a truly chewy oatmeal cookie
