Delicious soft baked gooey cookies with juicy berries and chocolate chips. Yes, that's what these oatmeal Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies are all about!
A dear friend gifted me a whole bunch of fresh blueberries last week. Since I love baking with fruits especially berries of all kinds, some of these were stashed away in my freezer for my baked goodies. After tossing out the pies and crumble ideas, I went for cookies. These oatmeal Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies! It was a good decision, I have to say! I ended up making THREE batches back to back, they were such a hit!
The recipe is pretty straightforward. There is no creaming of butter sugar, refrigerating batter..nothing. You just dump everything as you go in a bowl. The trickiest part is making dough balls. The batter is on the drier side so you need to get your hands in there. Yes, get your hands dirty!!
Once these little dough balls get in the oven, they almost split open with the blueberries bursting with the oven heat. Not to worry, they don't fall apart! They just look very rustic and charming. Typically, you would bake them for 10-12 minutes and they'll be very soft. I also tried a batch with an extra 4-5 minutes..that gave me a sturdier cookie with a bit of crunch on the outside but still with a moist interior. You can try which ever consistency you prefer.
I kept the recipe for these blueberry chocolate chip cookies vegan. But you can, by all means add butter instead of coconut oil and an egg instead of coconut milk. The cookies are not coconutty at all. They are moist, chewy with all the oats, gooey with the chocolate and little bursts of juicy berries that just make everyone so happy!
