2. Whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt and set aside. Then whisk together the cooled brown butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. It should be smooth and slightly thickened to a caramel color.
3. Dump in the dry ingredients and fold the two together using a rubber spatula. Stop once the flour is fully absorbed (don’t over mix). If using mix ins, fold those in just before the flour is fully absorbed. 4. Place the dough uncovered in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
5. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 6. Roll the dough into balls and place them a few inches apart on the baking sheet. Gently press them down to about 1/2 an inch thickness.
7. Bake - they’re done when there’s a golden brown ring around the edges and the center is pale and puffed. They’ll look underdone in the center, but they will continue to bake and settle outside of the oven. 8. Sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt and transfer to a cooling rack. Let them cool for about 15 minutes then dig in!
