  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen blueberries


  1. 1

    Adjust oven racks to upper third and lower third positions and preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. 2

    Toast oats in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to medium bowl. Stir in flour, Grape-Nuts, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Wipe out skillet. Melt butter over medium heat. Cook until browned, 6 to 8 minutes, occasionally swirling pan. The butter will foam during cooking; subsiding foam is an indicator that it's almost done. Once the solids are caramel brown remove pan from heat and immediately pour butter into a large bowl, scraping in all the solids.

  4. 4

    Whisk sugar, egg, and vanilla into brown butter. With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in oatmeal mixture. Mix until just combined. Stir in blueberries.

  5. 5

    Drop dough by heaping tablespoons on prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Flatten the dough slightly with fingertips. Bake cookies until golden, 12 to 14 minutes, alternating sheets halfway through baking.

  6. 6

    Transfer to cooling racks, and cool cookies on sheets until firm, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer cookies directly to cooling racks and cool completely. Serve at room temperature or completely cooled.
