How to make Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies
Firstly, I combined all the ingredients in a food processor (except blueberries) and processed it as much as possible. However, I did not blend it smooth so as to get a chewy texture of oats.
Secondly, I spooned it out in a mixing bowl.
Next, I folded in fresh blueberries and roughly mixed it with a spoon.
Thereafter, I placed 12 cookies on the prepared cookie sheet with the help of a cookie scoop.
Then, I shaped it gently with the fingers without picking it up.
Afterwards, I placed it in the middle rack of the oven and baked it for 25 minutes. Once done, I turned it off and let it settle for 2 minutes in the warm oven.
Lastly, I took it out and placed it on a flat surface. Then, I let it cool down completed so that it firms up.
We loved it and has become our regular breakfast delight.
I personally enjoy it as my evening snack and sometimes like to satisfy my sweet cravings with these after dinner. Therefore, you may enjoy it in any way you want.
