I love a new cookie, especially cookies they are not a derivative of chocolate chip. Oatmeal cookies have been a long time favorite for me, they are just so much more chewy and tender than other cookies. So today we have a new oatmeal cookie recipe for you, our Blueberry and Cardamom Oat Cookies. The blueberries kind of explode in the cookie in the oven making these cookies look like miniature paintings. The flavor of the blueberries paired with the cardamom is so good. These cookies also spread in the oven, which I like because it makes them a little thin, but they are still really chewy and moist. These are my new favorite summer cookies. Oh, and also, if you love blueberry cookies, you should check out our popular Blueberry Yogurt Cookies, they are super good too!
