Fresh Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies. Warm comforting oatmeal cookies with fresh, plump, juicy, sweet blueberries.
Ok, stop what your doing and go bake these cookies! Then eat them! Then sit back and ponder…”Why haven’t I had these awesome cookies before, where have they been hiding all my life? Are there anymore?” That’s what I did. Every now and then every cook, baker, food blogger, etc. has a moment, the moment when you know what your making isn’t as good as you thought, it’s BETTER! This cookie is one of those moments for me and now you!
I’ve always loved oatmeal cookies. I typically reserve them for fall, it’s not an official cold weather cookie but I think the warmth of cinnamon and the comforting fill of the oatmeal make me crave them as the weather gets cooler. But I had these plump beautiful blueberries calling my name and had an epiphany. Blueberries + Oatmeal Cookies…It was like a light bulb went off, a very bright light bulb.
This cookie has all the love and warmth of an oatmeal cookie with the addition of plump, juicy addition of fresh blueberries. Fresh Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies are lightly crunchy on the outside and have chewy oatmeal on the inside. As your enjoying the textures you’ll hit a sweet juicy blueberry that sets off the texture and the warmth of the cinnamon and the over all flavor.
I always used to think blueberry = muffins but no more. Now, blueberries = Fresh Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies.
