Pinterest challenge: berry, chocolate and oat cookies

Berry, chocolate and oat cookies recipieI wanted to bake some cookies to be send to our aunt as a thank you gesture (I really hope she have received them already). This recipe from Lady and Pups  have been perfect. I used mixed berries instead of blueberries as I had them. I particularly loved the idea of browning butter for it. This was my first time doing it!! I think it gives a nice rich flavour to any cookie (almost any!). Berry, chocolate and oat cookies recipieBERRY AND CHOCOLATE OAT COOKIES adopted from Lady and Pups
