3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup unsalted butter

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook, whisking frequently, until butter foams and turns light golden brown - about 2-3 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together browned butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until well combined - about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg yolks, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined. Beat in walnuts, oats and cinnamon chips until combined. Beat in flour until just combined.
Chill dough 30 minutes in refrigerator or freezer. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets, an inch apart. Bake 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
