Blueberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


My variation on the Quaker Oats Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie recipe.  These bake up quickly and are SO good ! (And if you feel like treating your chickens while you have the oven on and the ingredients out, here's a healthy  Oatmeal Treat Ball recipe for the chickens)

Blueberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
(makes two dozen)

Ingredients:
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 Cup brown sugar
2 Eggs (fresh if you have them !)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1-1/2 Cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 Cup dried blueberries
1/2 Cup white chocolate chips
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.

Add eggs, one at a time and vanilla.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt and add slowly on low speed until incorporated.  Add oats, blueberries, chips and walnuts, mix until blended.

Drop dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.

Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two and then remove to wire rack to cool completely.  Store in airtight container.

These cookies also freeze beautifully so make a double batch and freeze half for later.

If you don't have your own chickens, why not check the brand new website Local Hens for a farm near you where you could buy some local fresh eggs ?
