Make these easy flourless blueberry oatmeal cookies for whenever you need a quick and easy snack!
Imagine a blueberry muffin, but healthier and in cookie form…That’s exactly what these blueberry oat cookies are about! They’re delicious, perfectly sweet, have minimal ingredients and are the perfect healthy cookie recipe that you can even have for breakfast.
Well, if you do want to turn them into more substantial breakfast cookies and start your day with some coffee and two or three of these, which I totally get and is something I intend to do today myself, you’ve got options.
For example, you can add some nuts or seeds into the batter to make them crunchy and even more nutritious. Add in some flaxseed, chia seeds, walnuts, chopped almonds, cashews or even pumpkin seeds, you’ll love it.
You can also vary the fruit, if you don’t have blueberries right now. I’d love to try these with some apple chunks in there, maybe some cinnamon and nutmeg, or when in season, with some strawberry chunks or raspberries.
Another great option to try is with some dried fruit. Not a big fan of raisins myself, but if you are – they could work too, as well as dried cranberries or dried blueberries.
How To Make Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
It’s pretty unbelievable what you can make in 20 minutes with just 7 ingredients…
Oats. Use rolled or quick oats to make these cookies. You can also use oat flour if you have some in your pantry.
Butter or coconut oil. We bought a bunch of butter a week ago and so I used some in the recipe. However, usually I’d use coconut oil and it works just as well. Plus it adds a nice coconut-y flavor. Although, I must say… the butter flavor was pretty great as well. Whatever you decide to use, make sure to melt it before.
Dark brown sugar. You can also use coconut sugar, not sure whether these will work with maple syrup or honey. Let me know if you try these options.
Blueberries. Fresh blueberries is best, as frozen would make the cookies soggy.
Egg. There’s one large egg in the cookie dough, I haven’t tried making these with chia or a flax egg for a vegan version. Do let me know if you try this.
Baking soda or baking powder
- Before you start, make sure to preheat your oven to 180C/350F.
- Get all of your ingredients ready to go and add all of them, except for the blueberries to a bowl. You can put everything together at once, but I recommend to start with the egg, melted butter or coconut oil, dark brown sugar, vanilla, and baking soda. Mix these together until smooth with a fork or whichever type of utensil you like to use for mixing.
- Add in the oats and blend with a hand / immersion blender. The mixture doesn’t need to be blended all the way through if you’re using quick or fine oats. If you’re using rolled oats – do blend as well as you can. If using oat flour – you don’t need to blend at all, just stir in the flour.
- Once you’ve got the cookie dough ready, stir in very gently the blueberries doing your best to not break them. I added about half of the blueberries into the batter and then topped the cookies with the rest.
- Grease a baking sheet or line it with baking paper and make the cookies, shaping with your hands as well as you can. Press a few blueberries into each cookie.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, let cool off and eat!
Turn Into Baked Oats
I ran out of space last time when I was making these cookies, so I decided to add a little bit of milk to the batter and turned it into baked oats. It was delicious and something you might want to try too.
Simply pour the mixture into a greased small baking pan and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
