Ingredients & Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for blueberry cookies. Scroll down to the recipe card for full ingredients list and instructions.
Use frozen blueberries. This will not work with fresh berries. Then, microwave until thawed and jammy. The mixer will end up breaking up most of the blueberries.
Use cold butter right from the fridge. This prevents the dough from being even more sticky. In addition, this helps keeps the cookies from spreading too thin in the oven. Cut butter into small cubes before adding to mixing bowl. For vegan, use dairy free butter.
Granulated sugar adds sweetness. Brown sugar or coconut sugar will significantly darken the hue of the cookies.
Both all purpose flour and gluten free 1 to 1 flour can be used. For this recipe, do not substitute with an alternative flour.
Baking powder helps these cookies rise.
Add in a pinch of sea salt if desired.
Lastly, fold in white chocolate chips. Regular chocolate chips work well too. Or, use chopped pecans or walnuts.
