Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

First and foremost, I need to give credit where it is due. My friend Melody's daughter, Iris, came up with the idea to add blueberries to cookies. It turned out to be a delectable dessert we'll definitely be making again.

For the recipe I used dried blueberries, but I am sure freeze dried, frozen or fresh would work well too. If you try out another kind, please let me know how it works out.

Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup flour
1/2 cup margarine (I use Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
1/3 cup applesauce
2 /3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups oats
2/3 cup dried blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream together the margarine and sugar. Next add applesauce, vanilla, and baking soda and mix. Blend in the flour until well combined, and then mix in the oats and blueberries.

Spoon a tablespoon of cookie dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (unless it is non-stick, then skip it). Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown around edges.


  1. These look SO good! I must make them!

  2. I love blueberries in cookies. I have tried tiny frozen ones and they work well!

  3. This looks super tasty! Dried blueberries is such a nice touch!

  4. Just made them, they are amazing!! Great excuse to buy dried blueberries.

  5. Made these today! Turned out so yummy! I didn't have a full cup of butter so I halved everything. Mine didn't spread out as much but they were still very good! Thank you for the recipe!
