Do blueberries in cookies sound weird to you? 😂 I mean technically speaking, they are just like raisins, except with fresh fruit instead of dried fruit. And while I do LOVE me some oatmeal raisin cookies, blueberries are my all-time favorite fruit, we just happened to have a lot of extra ones on hand and I just HAD to see how they would turn out! I LOVE how they burst with sweet fruity flavor in each bite. And paired with a chewy and buttery oatmeal cookie? MY GOODNESS it’s a match-mate in heaven!
