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 egg

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.
