OK OK OK hey guys!!! These will be the most life changing flipping cookie imaginable.

I am a sucker for a really really good chocolate chip cookie and one that has brown butter in it? Well that just takes the cake! Brown butter is the ultimate secret weapon in any recipe. I love how easy it is to make and the nutty delicious flavor it adds to everything is just too die for.

These cookies are ones that you will want to make over and over again. They are chewy, a little firm on the outside and they taste pretty kick ass frozen, fresh from the oven or dunked in your favorite milk. We keep these in our freezer all the time for easy access too. And if you love my Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies these will 100% be your new go-to too.

If you guys make these at home and enjoy, let me know in the comments!! I hope you love them!

What ingredients you need to make delicious chocolate chip cookies with brown butter:

How to bake epic gluten-free brown butter chocolate chip cookies:

  1. In a small saucepan, add the butter and warm over medium/low heat and continue to stir as the butter melts
  2. Once butter is fully melted, keep stirring over medium/low heat and allow the butter to start to brown (it will smell delicious and nutty too!)
  3. Remove from heat before it burns and allow the butter to cool completely
  4. Mix together butter, egg, coconut sugar and vanilla extract until smooth
  5. Mix in almond meal, oat flour and baking powder until fully combined
  6. Fold in dark chocolate chips then scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough into your hand and roll into a ball then add to greased or lined baking sheet
  7. Gently press down the cookies (just slightly) and add to fridge to set for 20 minutes (I don’t usually leave them in longer than that)
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake cookies for 15-18 minutes, or until edges start to golden a bit
  9. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes or so then remove from tray and enjoy!

  1. Omg these may be the best cookie I’ve ever made!! This recipe is perfect and I love the brown butter. Thank you!

  2. These cookies are amazing and worth the extra step of browning the butter. I don’t think I’ll ever make chocolate chip cookies again, without browned butter! I used all oat flour, because that’s all I had. I used unsalted butter, therefore, I should have added salt to the dry ingredients or on top of the cookies. That’s just my personal preference to have salt with the sweet, but they were still so good!

  3. 20 stars! Tbh, I didn’t even know wtf brown butter was until yesterday, now I can’t imagine life without it! Celiac husb is loving all your GF goodies (as am I). I’m so grateful for how easy & freaking delicious these are. Thank you so much for another winner!

  4. had anyone subed almond flour and had success? Made them twice and i’m obsessed with this recipe but have to make them nut free this time!
