Chewy Blueberry-Oatmeal Cookies {Recipe}

Chewy Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies {Recipe}

I made these Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies over the weekend and have probably already eaten half the batch, which I felt guilty about until a sweet Twitter follower reminded me that both blueberries AND oatmeal are good for your heart. Score! Yes… I know that doesn’t exactly make these fall into the “health food” category, but it’s gotta be more innocent than the chocolate chip version we usually make around here, right? =)

And getting back to the taste buds… these really ARE yummy! They have all the sweetness of oatmeal cookies with a refreshing hint of blueberry muffin goodness. I baked some of them for about 12 mins and they came out a little undercooked (not complaining at all about that though!) – and others for about 15 mins and they were more cake-y… so you can bake them to be what you like.

And now… onto the pictorial & recipe, starting with what you need:

Most of these ingredients are probably already in your pantry: eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, oil, butter, flour, salt, baking soda, old fashioned oats, and then the blueberries of course!

Start by beating the sugar, butter, and oil… it will be slightly lumpy, but will smooth out once you beat in the eggs and vanilla (which is next).

In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking soda, and salt…

Pour dry mixture into wet mixture. (It will be easiest/less messy if you pour half the dry ingredients in first, combine that, then pour the rest in…)

Already looking tasty… isn’t oatmeal cookie dough the best? Something about the added texture even kicks it up a notch from regular chocolate chip cookie dough…

Finally, fold in the blueberries, a little at a time.

I started out with a spoon but quickly discovered that mixing by hand was much more effective/efficient…

Drop large spoonfuls onto cookie, sheets, and bake for 12-15 mins, depending on your oven/cookie firmness preference.

And you’re done – ENJOY! That part of the instructions should be especially easy to follow. =) Remember to pat yourself on the back for doing something good by eating both blueberries and oatmeal in one sitting. *wink*

What a yummy alternative to raisins! About that guilt thingy, I’ve started using plain unsweetened applesauce to replace the fat in baked goods and nobody can tell the difference! Off to bake!!

They look delicious and blueberries are my son’s favorite! Do you think they’d work with frozen blueberries as well? And also if I used whole wheat flour instead of white? Thanks!!

This recipe is delightful! Thank you for sharing! I guess you could use any other fruits in this recipe if you;re all out of blueberries…

Just made these this morning to have with breakfast. They were wonderful! My only suggestion would be to use Reynolds non-stick foil under them as some of the blueberries popped and would have stuck pretty badly. So good. Thanks!

Cory SAYS:

I have a recipe very similar! It uses boxed muffin mix with the can of blueberries! I actually like this idea better because you are controlling the sodium and preservatives better! The worst part about making these is I love to eat the dough raw as I’m making them! They are THE BEST cookies! {Btw, I love your countertop – it makes me miss our home we had to sell because of my husband’s job relocation. Not that I need help missing it! ;-) }

Kimberly SAYS:

I just finished a batch of these. They are amazing. The only tip I can pass along is to make sure there aren’t too many blueberries in one cookie. It won’t hold together. Thanks for the recipe!
