Crinkly, wrinkly, and so delicious. These GIANT brown butter Magic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best. Kind of like a 7-layer bar, but in oatmeal cookie form. They’re rich, decadent, heavy on the chocolate, and extra gooey! Made with browned butter, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chips, and peanuts for a cookie that’s addictingly delicious. These cookies are easy to make and take only minutes to prep. They’re so deliciously easy – they’re magical!
Happy gosh darn Friday you all! What a week it’s been. Both good, bad, and so, so. Weather-wise we had beautiful days, some stormy afternoons, and some days that were a bit of a mix. Happy to be laying low this weekend and baking things up in the kitchen!
Today we have some cookies. Some very special, oh-so-delicious cookies. It’s been the longest time since I last shared an oatmeal cookie recipe. And with the back-to-school season here, and fall upon us, I’ve been craving a really good oat cookie.
Another thing my mom would make a lot? Oatmeal cookies and magic bars! Magic bars are a simple mix of chocolate chips, coconut, and peanuts, layered on top of graham crackers with sweetened condensed milk poured overtop, then baked.
I thought turning that yummy mix into a variation of my mom’s oat cookies could be even better. And you know, it is better. These are some of my favorite oat cookies.
The thing about magic bars – they’re EASY. Which is one part of the “magic”. Well, the same is true for a magic cookie.
Just make my favorite brown butter oat cookie dough, then stir in chocolate chips, the coconut, so many chocolate chunks, and salty peanuts. Then swirl in the sweetened condensed milk and bake.
Step 1: brown the butter
Let’s start with the butter. Brown two whole sticks on the stove until toasty and golden. Already the kitchen will begin to smell wonderful.
The butter will bubble on top, then as the bubbles settle you’ll see a rich, golden color. Very pretty.
Step 2: make the dough
Mix the brown butter with brown sugar, a couple of eggs, and some vanilla.
Now, mix in the usuals: flour, baking soda, and salt.
Step 3: the additions
Once the dough has come together, add the additions. Lots of chocolate chips, coconut chunks, and if you desire, shredded coconut too. Next, add some salty peanuts, or any nut really, but I think peanuts are most delicious for this cookie.
You could even add some white chocolate as well.
Step 4: the sweetened condensed milk
Next, add the sweet milk and gently stir the dough to swirl the milk into the dough.
Be careful not to over-mix. You want to have streaks of milk.
Step 5: bake
Bake the cookies until just set, they’ll continue to cook on the baking sheet as they sit.
Of course, we love these warm, but they are just as delicious at room temperature!
They’re chocolatey, salty, sweet, gooey, and have just the tiniest bit of CRUNCH. Basically, they’re everything you could want out of a cookie, and with pockets of chocolate too. So simple, they’re magic!
