Current favourite nut butter: cashew butter.
Current favourite fruit: blueberries.
Current favourite snack: frozen blueberries dipped in cashew butter.
I don't know why it took me so long to realize that cashews + blueberries are a match made in heaven. So obviously, I had to merge them into a cookie- and what better way to start off the week with some banging stuffed blueberry oatmeal cookies?! Trust me you guys, these are INCREDIBLE. Like, I've gone through at least 2 jars of cashew butter last week munching my way through these cookies.
These healthy blueberry oatmeal cookies require just 7 simple ingredients that you *probably* already have in your pantry:
- Cashew Butter: pairs SO well with the blueberry flavour but you can totally use any nut or seed butter of your choice just make sure it's runny!
- Rolled Oats: we're keeping some whole and making some into oat flour.
- Aquafaba: I'm convinced this is the ingredient making them satisfyingly chewy but you can just replace it with half a flax egg or nut milk.
- Coconut Sugar: keeping these cookies refined sugar free and not overly sweet.
In addition, you will also need baking basics like baking powder, vanilla and salt.
How to Make Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
Oatmeal cookies are so easy to make because you don't really have to worry about over mixing since there isn't any gluten in this recipe. Plus, it's easily made in 1 bowl!
- Mix wet ingredients
- Mix dry ingredients
- Scoop out some cookie dough, flatten and stuff with blueberries
- Roll them back into balls, gently flatten them and bake for 12 minutes
And I mean.. you could just gently fold in the blueberries but I like the element of surprise of biting into a stuffed cookie.
Tips to Bake Oatmeal Cookies
- Use Runny Nut Butter: Dry nut butters won't mix as well and you may end up needing to add more liquid or cutting back on the oat flour.
- Don't Over Stuff: the blueberries might burst or cookies will fall apart when baking.
- Baking Times: For chewy cookies, bake for 10 minutes. For chewy-crispy cookies bake for 12 minutes. If you like your oatmeal cookeis crispy throughout, bake for 13 minutes.
How to Store Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
- Room Temperature: Store cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
- Freezer: Store in freezer safe containers/bags for up to 2 months.
I hope you guys try and LOVE these cashew butter oatmeal cookies as much as I do-- they're bursting with juicy blueberries and it's perfect with the crispy and chewy texture you get with the actual cookie! Have them for breakfast, snack or dessert-- they're actually the ideal cookie for any occasion!
