Chocolate Chip Blueberry Cookies

As promised in an earlier post, here is another blueberry recipe. Just a heads up, I have a lot of blueberries frozen still, so there will be more to come. This cookie recipe uses chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips like the last one. When I saw this recipe on www.blueberry-haven.com  one ingredient really caught my attention, and I know I had to try it. It was an ingredient I have never seen in a cookie recipe before. I won’t tell you what it is but will let you guess. This cookie dough is a very dry dough, but don’t worry about it. It helps compensate for the juiciness of the blueberries.

  • 2 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt

Brown Sugar Blueberry Cookies

I found several varieties and reposts on multiple blogs with this recipe when I started to search for blueberry cookie recipes. Now that I have made the recipe, I see why it is on so many blogs. I had to add it to mine. These cookies taste like a great muffin. So you could almost rename this recipe as a cookie/muffin or breakfast cookie. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family is.

A great breakfast cookie

Helpful Hints:
  1. If you damp your hands before rolling the dough it will help the dough not to stick, as well as help the sugar to stick to the balls. . Be careful though that you don’t get the dough too wet from your hands.
  2. These cookies are quite tall and do rise up and out quite a bit. 2 inches a part is definately recommended.
  3. I haven’t tried it yet, but this recipe should taste good substituting strawberries for the blueberries.
  4. Each cookie is about 87 calories.
