Can I Make These Cookies Without Browning The Butter?

While browning the butter amplifies the flavor, I realize that is not for everyone. So, you can use this recipe with just melted butter, but just know there will be a few adjustments you need to make to account for the extra moisture. So, If you decide not to brown the butter, make sure to add a bit more flour (about 1/2 cup more 60g.)

What Is So Special About Einkorn?

Einkorn seems to be rising in popularity, however, it is not a new wheat/flour. In fact, Einkorn is one of our original wheats. It is great to see that this rise in popularity has also increased awareness about this special little wheat kernel/berry. This “ancient grain,” is also referred to as the “Virgin Wheat.” Einkorn has been reported as being tolerated in people with Gluten Sensitivities. However, this should be used with caution, especially in someone with a true Celiac condition.

Einkorn is higher in protein than most other wheat varieties, but doesn’t develop a strong gluten structure. Also, Einkorn has been found to have a higher nutritional content of vitamins and minerals as more modern wheats. Examples of these include higher levels of fat, phosphorus, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. You can buy Einkorn pre-ground into flour already, or you can buy the whole berry. To make beautiful fresh milled flour, mill the whole berry at home! In conclusion, this is the method I would recommend, the fresher the better!

As the popularity of this grain rises, unfortunately, so does the price. But, to me it still is very much worth it. I have tried a few brands, and HERE is one of my favorites!

Ingredients For The Best Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Einkorn Cookie Recipe

  • 1 cup of butter (225g)
  • 2&2/3 cup Fresh Milled Einkorn Flour (365g) Mill 365g of einkorn berries to get that flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar (210g)
  • 1 cup brown sugar(210g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla (I love to use my homemade HERE)
  • 1 bag Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (340g)

Instructions For The Best Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Einkorn Cookie Recipe

  1. First, brown your butter in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Make sure to watch this step, as the butter boils it can foam out of the pan quickly. It will bubble, then foam. Don’t walk away, it can burn quickly too. Once the butter solids have browned, remove from heat, and let it cool to below 110* F
  2. While waiting for the butter to cool, Mill your flour. I milled 1&2/3 cup of Einkorn berries to get my total flour.
  3. Now, add your baking powder, baking soda, and salt to your milled flour and mix in.
  4. Once the butter has cooled slightly, put it in your mixer with the sugars, and beat to combine for about 2 minutes.
  5. Next, add your eggs one at a time, then beat for about 3 minutes on medium high. It is ok if it looks greasy at this stage, it will come together later.
  6. Add your vanilla and beat for 2 more minutes until fully combines. At this stage, it should resemble a cake batter consistency.
  7. Slowly add your flour mixture on low until everything is all incorporated.
  8. Lastly, add the chocolate chips, and mix in gently.
  9. Let the dough rest in the fridge.
  10. Preheat oven to 350*F
  11. Scoop with cookie scoop onto a lined baking sheet, and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.

*Alternate Bake for Later Option*

  • After the dough is made, scoop cookie balls onto a lined baking sheet, and flash freeze for 1 to 2 hours. Put these frozen raw cookie dough balls into a freezer safe container, and freeze for up to 4 months. You can use as many as you want, just bake them straight from frozen at 350* for 11-12 minutes.

Notes

These delicious cookies can be made with regular white flour, but the flour ratio may need to be adjusted. 
You can try other fresh ground wheat & grains to make a custom flour blend to your liking! Try adding a bit of Milled barley as some of your flour, yum!
*If you decide not to brown the butter, there will be too much moisture in the dough from the moisture content in the butter, so make sure to add a bit more flour (about 1/2 cup more 60g)

    Loved them! The only change I made was to add flake salt on top after they came out of the oven. They taste like delicious cookies from a fancy bakery, and no one would guess they are whole grain, fresh milled. Thank you!!

  2. If I wanted to add sourdough discard, how would I need to adjust the recipe? These sound amazing!

    Great recipe!! I have einkorn lying around that I bought for bread making and decided I didn’t much care for it. Wanted to look for another way to use it up and figured sugar and butter wouldn’t hurt anything. Super super good! Perfect texture.

  4. 5 stars
    You always have the best recipes! I used a mix of dark/milk chocolate chips and added flakey sea salt on top. I didn’t haven’t Einkorn but a mix of soft white with barley worked so well!

    Made these yesterday! I only had some Einhorn so I mixed in the remaining with soft white berries. Subbed out coconut brown sugar, and cut both sugars to about 170g. They turned out delicious! Made one each for hubs and myself and froze the remaining ones for birthday dinner next weekend. Thanks for another great recipe using fmf!
