Bite-Sized Brown Butter and Cinnamon Chip Cookies

May 25, 2012

Yep, another yummy cookie recipe.When it comes to cookies, I really can’t help myself. I probably bake one to two different kinds of cookies a week. And I have tiny mouths that will eat them all.

I adapted this recipe from Baker Bettie, a lovely blog with lots of fun recipes. As usual, I changed a few things about the recipe mainly because I was out of ingredients. Cinnamon chips in place of dark chocolate, and walnuts in place of pecans. From this recipe, I learned how to make oatmeal flour: put oatmeal in a blender and blend until it turns into flour. Easy!

Brown Butter and Cinnamon Chip Cookies

recipe adapted from Baker Bettie


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 T vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2/3 cup oatmeal flour (oats ground to a fine flour in a blender)
  • 1 T flax seed meal
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon chips (found in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans


  1. Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until butter melts and becomes an amber color, and gives off a nutty smell. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well mixed.
  4. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and mix until incorporated
  5. Mix in the flours and flax seed in small batches until a stiff dough forms.
  6. Fold in cinnamon chips and walnuts.
  7. Using a teaspoon as your scoop, put your dough an inch apart on your baking sheet. Press dough down a tiny bit, and then bake 5-6 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.
  8. Move to a wire rack and let completely cool.
  9. Enjoy!

  2. Hey there’s an idea, I should have a couple more kids so they can eat more cookies, so I can bake more cookies! My two have a hard time keeping up with me sometimes…
