Recipe: Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

Image from Taste of Home
I bought lots of blueberries the other day, so I figured I would bake something with them. I wanted to make a recipe for which I already had all of the ingredients at home. So I came across this one on Taste of Home and wanted to share it!


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries 


  1. In a bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the blueberries.  
  2. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
I actually made the recipe twice, and they taste delicious whether you make them with fresh or frozen blueberries. I will say that online the recipe says it will yield three dozen (~36) cookies, which is NOT true. Granted, the first time I made the cookies VERY large so I only got one dozen, but even when I consciously tried to make them smaller the second time, I still did not get even two dozen cookies. If you need a lot of cookies, I would recommend doubling the recipe (except for the blueberries. Both times I made them there wasn't enough dough to "contain" the blueberries). I would also recommend just placing the blueberries on top of the mounds of dough so that you do not burst the berries (and they don't really mix well into the batter anyway).

My mom said these were some of the best cookies she's ever had. What a ringing endorsement!
