Today is one of those very busy National Days. We’ve got Military Brats Day, Honesty Day, Adopt a Sheltered Pet Day and Bugs Bunny Day just to name a few. I had kicked around the idea of Carrot Cake for Bugs Bunny Day. But then I decided to go with National Oatmeal Cookie Day. After all, you can never have too many cookies!
At first I though my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies would be nice. But then, who doesn’t have an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe? Now we could go with some old-fashioned frosted oatmeal cookies. While delicious and always a hit with the wee little ones, I wanted something special. Something that would stand out. That’s when it struck me – blueberries in the oatmeal cookies! This is a recipe from Dinner with Julie. I hope you find it as much a delight as we have.
Oatmeal Blueberry Cookies
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 large Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup all-purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned Oats
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 cup fresh Blueberries
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the butter, oil and brown sugar until creamy; beat in the egg and vanilla.
Add the flour, oats, baking soda and salt, stir until almost combined.
Add the blueberries and stir just until blended.
Drop large blobs on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until set around the edges but still soft in the middle.
Makes 2 dozen.
