If you read about my recent Monday, you'll know that I had to do something with 17 pounds of frozen blueberries from our spring blueberry-picking encounter pronto, so these cookies are one way I took care of that little problem.
What I love most about these soft cookies is that they are a new way to enjoy blueberries as well as a fairly healthy treat!
What You Need:
1 stick softened butter
1/4 cup honey (you can always add more - up to a cup - if you want a sweeter cookie)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder (see how to make your own here)
1 cup blueberries
What You Do:
1. Cream the butter and honey (easiest in this ).
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
3. Combine the rest of the ingredients (except the blueberries) in a bowl and add in with the creamed mixture.
4. Stir in the berries.
5. Bake 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees until golden.
Do you feel healthier cookies like this even count as dessert? Or would you consider this recipe more of a snack bar? I'd love to hear - leave a comment or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
