Blueberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time

I found the original recipe at the KA website and made a few changes to meet my DS taste. These cookies are really good and keep well. They are the kind that get better the next day. I plan someday to try to add other dried friuts and nuts as this recipe seems to be one with many possibilities. *Number of servings is dependant on size of dropped dough used. SERVINGS BELOW is a guesstimate. I needed to fill in a number as I used both 1 and 2 TBSP scoops. *Prep time is estimated - majority of time is allowing mix to thicken. *frozen or fresh berries burst & do not keep more than a day, cookies become watery. I would not use unless you intend to eat right away.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Combine flour, allspice or cinn, baking soda and salt.
  3. Stir in oatmeal, pecans and blueberries.
  4. Beat oil, maple syrup, egg and zest until mixture lightens in color.
  5. Stir in dry ingredients into wet. Mix until combined.
  6. Let stand 20-30 minutes to thicken.
  7. Drop onto parchement-lined baking sheets. (I use either a 1 or 2 TBSP cookie scoop) Flatten slightly.
  8. Bake until they begin to darken and change color around the edges, about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan. Place directly on countertop or other solid surface. I place parchment paper on my countertop. This will allow them to retain moisture as they cool.

Could not bring myself to use walnut oil in a recipe with pecans - used vegetable oil instead. No idea why it would need time to thicken since it was nearly dry when I finished mixing. Doesn't spread much, so I flattened A LOT. Since the dough was already dark when mixed, it was difficult to gauge when done. Certainly not the prettiest cookie on the platter - more like cookie rocks.

Very interesting twist on oatmeal cookies and more flavorful using maple syrup than sugar.
