The kids were asking for chocolate chip cookies and I didn’t want to roll them into balls and wait for them all to bake. I decided to bake them all at once. Who can honestly turn down browned butter. If you’re going to have butter in it, it may as well be browned. It gives it a nutty, almost caramel flavor.

These bars were a hit and my little sister loved them so much she hid the rest of the pan so no one would eat them.


Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars


  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Have a 9×13 inch baking dish out.
    2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
    3. Place the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and let the mixture bubble, stirring occasionally, until brown bits begin to appear on the bottom. Once the brown bits appear, turn the heat off and continue to stir for about 30 seconds. Let the butter cool slightly to room temperature. 
    4. Place the brown sugar in a large bowl. Pour in the brown butter and mix until combined combined and smooth – the sugar will somewhat dissolve. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring immediately after. Stir in the vanilla extract.
    5. Use a spoon to stir in the dry ingredients until they are almost combined. Stir in the chocolate chips until they are evenly dispersed.
    6. Press the mixture into a greased dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and set in the center. Remove the dish and let cool completely before slicing into squares.
