Blueberry Oat Breakfast Cookies made with fresh blueberries, old fashion oats, honey, brown sugar, and a hand full of other ingredients. You can eat these cookies for breakfast if you like, yum. Or you can have them any time of the day you are looking for a little sweetness in your life.
I really enjoy a good cookie, no matter what time of day it is. I call these breakfast cookies because I tried to make them a little on the healthier side. Instead of using all sugar, I replaced some of the sugar with honey.
The sweetness is cut in about half if you are looking for something sweeter you can add some additional sugar, but I think that you will love them the way they are.
They are loaded with nuts and old fashion oats that give this cookie a nice chew.
- I like using old fashion oats in this recipe. I think that they give the cookie a little extra chewiness. Don’t worry if you don’t have old fashion oats or if you don’t like them you can use quick oats instead. The quick oats will not change the flavor of the cookies.
- Wash and dry the blueberries. Remove any stems that may be still attached.
- As with most cookies, you will want to use butter and eggs that are room temperature. Remember to get them out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you start baking so that they can warm up.
- Remember not to overmix these cookies. Overmixing develops the flour in the cookies and can make for a tough cookie.
- In fact, we like to eat them straight out of the freezer once in a while.
- Gently fold in the blueberries. I like to use a spatula to do this and mix as gently as I can. Being too aggressive you will end up with blueberries that are smooshed and your cookies will end up with a blue tint to them.
- I like using pecans and walnuts in this recipe, but if you prefer another kind of nut go for it. I think any kind of nut that you enjoy would be fine for this recipe.
- These cookies are best when eaten fresh, so if you have them for more than a couple of days place them in the freezer.
- These cookies freeze very well. Store them in an airtight container and put them in the freezer. In fact, we like to eat them straight out of the freezer once in a while.
Steps for making Blueberry Oat Breakfast Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
In a small bowl combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl combine the butter, honey, and brown sugar mix with an electric mixer until well blended and fluffy.
Add the egg to the butter mixture and mix it in. Blend in the vanilla next.
Add the flour mixture to the batter and mix just until combined.
Add the nuts and fold in. Fold the blueberries into the batter gently avoiding breaking them.
Drop by heaping teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.
Cool completely on a cooling rack before placing them into an airtight container.

- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- 3/4 cup blueberries
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
- In a small bowl combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

- Add the flour mixture to the batter and mix just until the dry ingredients are mixed in.

- Drop by heaping teaspoons on the prepared baking sheet. With your fingertips press the dough slightly. If you prefer a thicker cookie this step is not needed.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are browned.
- Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for one or two minutes, then remove and cool completely on a cooling rack.
- If you don't like old fashion oats you can use quick oats. They may change the texture of the cookies a little, but the flavor will be the same.
- Gently fold in the blueberries. If you stir the blueberries to hard they will burst open.
- Let the cookies cool on the pan for one to three minutes. The cookies are very soft when they come out of the oven, cooling on the pan will firm them up a little.
- These cookies are best eaten fresh. If they are not eaten up in a couple of days, I would suggest that you stick them in the freezer.
- These cookies freeze very well. Make sure to have them in an airtight container. In fact, we like eating them right out of the freezer. To thaw let them set on the counter until they are room temperature.
