Wild Blueberry Cookies with Fresh and Dried Blueberries and White Chocolate

wild blueberry cookies

Homemade wild blueberry cookies with white chocolate – one of the tastiest cookies I have ever tried!

Dark blue, flavourful, freshly picked wild blueberries are one of the best wild edibles from the woods. The taste of summer and sweetness is indescribable. Wild blueberries are in a whole different league than the cultivated blueberries you typically buy in the supermarket. Plus, blueberries are just insanely healthy.

Blueberries can be used for many things; they can be eaten straight from the forest, they can be added to an ice cream dessert, made into lemonade, or in this case, added to cookies.

I have experimented with making cookies with fresh blueberries and cookies with dried blueberries. Both versions are super delicious.

When you choose to dry the blueberries and then add them to the cookie dough, you get cookies that have a super delicious crunch when they are done baking. Using fresh blueberries, on the other hand, gives you an insanely intense blueberry flavor. Both versions should be tried – I usually make half of the cookie dough with fresh blueberries and half with dried.

Besides blueberries, these cookies also contain white chocolate, which goes really well with the wild blueberries.

Enjoy your very own wild blueberry cookies!
