Blueberry Nut Butter Cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Try these Blueberry Nut Butter Cookies from the new cookbook, Occasionally Eggs.
This is an extraordinarily simple recipe, exactly what I look for in the summertime. It makes the best chewy cookie, without any leavening agent needed, or wheat, or eggs. Blueberries are lovely in these, both delicious and attractive — but if they’re out of season for you, just use chocolate!
Note: Frozen blueberries equal very purple cookies. You can use them — the taste is the same — but they will color the dough. Peanut or almond butter are also delicious in this recipe.
Yield: Makes 10 cookies
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix the nut and seed butter, maple syrup, coconut our, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until thickened, about 30 seconds. Gently fold in the blueberries. It will be a stiff dough.
- Form the cookie dough into ten small balls and place on the baking sheet. Gently flatten into discs. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the sheet and cooling fully on a rack. These are best kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator or another cool place, for up to 3 days, as the berries will spoil quickly at room temperature.
