Give a new life to your average oatmeal cookies by adding fresh blueberries to them and making them blueberry oatmeal cookies. The cookies are perfectly chewy and rustic with a bursts of fresh juicy blueberries in every bite. What a delicious way to add more fruit to your diet as well.
Oatmeal takes center stage in the cookies so make sure to pick the right kind. Old fashioned or rolled oats are the best choice. Robust old fashioned oats that’s what gives the cookies it’s chewy, hearty texture and earthy, nutty taste and they pair wonderfully with sweet and slightly tart juicy blueberries. You can either use fresh or frozen blueberries, both kinds work great in this recipe.
To make the cookies is very easy with this foolproof recipe. Create the cookies dough by beating butter and sugar then fold in dry ingredients and blueberries. Chill the dough and bake for 10-13 minutes.
I love to make the cookies with fresh berries, especially during summer months while they are in season. There is something magical about the combination of soft, sweet cookies and slightly tart, fragrant, fresh berries.
I really thinks the flavor is perfectly balanced with the tartness of the berries offsetting the sweetness of the cookies, plus the fruit gives the cookies an unbeatable freshness and it just feels so summery.
