Browned Butter Oatmeal Cookies are really Browned Butter Toasted Walnut Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies.

But that title is way too long.

Trust me, they are way too good to last long.

David loves them and you will too!

David’s favorite cookie – jazzed up with heavenly browned butter, toasted walnuts, and chocolate chunks.


  • 1 cup (227 grams) browned butter
  • 1 cup (213 grams) brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups (240 grams) flour
  • 2 cups (178 grams) old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla 
  • 1 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bar, broken into chunks


  1. Cream Butter and brown sugar together.
  2. Add eggs one at a time and mix just until combined.
  3. Add flour, oats and baking soda and then mix again.
  4. Add in vanilla.
  5. Mix walnuts in and chocolate.
  6. Scoop into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  7. Allow to chill 3 hours or overnight.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for approximately 18 – 20 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing to finish cooling on a cookie rack.


  • Browned Butter – To have 1 cup, you will need to start out with 1 1/4 cups salted butter as there will be evaporation.  Melt the butter on medium heat in a shallow and wide pan.  I use my 10 inch cast iron skillet.  Once the butter is melted continue whisking.  The butter will start to foam after about 5 minutes.  It will be hard to see what is happening under the foam but you will know its working. Keep whisking and watching as now the butter will start to brown.  Do not walk away.  Usually around the 15 minute mark, the butter will turn deeply brown and you will see the solids from the butter on the bottom.  Remove from heat immediately.  Allow to cool slightly before pouring into a glass measuring cup (including the solids on the bottom).  You should have 1 cup.  Allow it to cool completely and become solid again.  You can do this by placing in the refrigerator.  But, before you start the cookie baking, you need to allow the browned butter to come to room temperature for a few hours.  It will still be solid, just not cold.  Yes, it’s worth it.
  • You can place two balls of dough together in the shape of a “V” to bake heart shaped cookies.  You will get 1 dozen heart cookies versus 2 dozen regular cookies. See instructions for shaping hearts here.
