Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

It’s here – one of Hubby’s favorite times of the year – blueberry season!! We’ll be getting up bright and early tomorrow to head up north a bit to go blueberry picking. I swear Hubby eats more than he puts in the bucket, but that’s between you and me.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

We’ve already been getting blueberries in our CSA box which has been awesome. Mostly, we’ve been mixing them in our yogurt for breakfast, but I wanted to bake with them too. You guys might remember that I actually don’t like raw blueberries (or cherries, or grapes). I’d much rather have those fruits in something baked.

Blueberry White Chocolate Cookies

I stumbled upon this cookie recipe and loved the idea of white chocolate and oats playing along with the blueberries in a cookie. I’ve made cookies with fresh blueberries in them before (it was a long time ago, be sure to click through to check out the pictures I took of those cookies! It’s kind of awesome to see where I started all those years ago…) I remember loving how the little berries burst in your mouth releasing their ripe juice in every bite. These cookies do the same thing and got rave reviews when I took them to a friend’s house.

    I love using fresh berries in cakes and breads – I don’t know why I have never tried them in a cookie! Yours look delicious, thanks for the inspiration!

      Any time! It’s rare to see fresh fruit in cookies.

    I never would have though of putting fresh blueberries into cookies…I gravitate toward scones/muffins/cake, but these just may have convinced me to try cookies!

      I know – you just never see them in cookies. Definitely give these a shot.

    LOVE the idea of fresh blueberries in a cookie like this. Have any tipes to keep from smashing the blueberries when adding them? :) Pinning now!

    • beantownbaker — August 4th, 2013 @ 6:44 pm

      Thanks for pinning this :) Just be careful when you stir the berries in. They shouldn’t smash unless you’re really heavy handed.

    Had to comment on these, I made some earlier in the week as I had some fresh blueberries to use up – they were so easy and quick to make and delicious. Definitely worth a go.

      So glad you made them and enjoyed them. I love an easy cookie recipe!
