If you didn’t know, blueberries are my favorite fruit to eat and to bake with and it's been mentioned a lot around here! Berry season is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than to share a few of my favorite blueberry recipes! Below you’ll find a little something for everyone to bake and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Let’s get started!
While this short list is not in any particular order, I must put these down as number one because if you try any of the recipes here, these cookies should be it! They are so good and here’s why:
These cookies are full of brown sugar, coconut, butter, oats, chunks of white chocolate, a hint of nutmeg and fresh blueberries. What could be better!? These ingredients are so perfectly blended that the flavor is almost indescribable. The texture is soft and chewy, yet the oats do not overwhelm the cookie. This is one cookie that you will want to bake over and over!
Is brown sugar and blueberries a trend here? Maybe but I’m thinking that they’re more a match made in heaven. This coffee cake is one for the books! I spent a lot of time developing this recipe to create a coffee cake that had the right amount of softness and fluff and where the blueberries did not sink to the bottom and the topping formed a sweet, crumbly coat of goodness on top. This was worth the time and effort and many trials of baking! Top it with some extra powdered sugar, a little crème fraiche, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Additional blueberries are strongly recommended. Give this recipe a try, especially if you’re looking for a welcoming and crowd-pleasing dessert to host with.
These muffins are amazing, especially in these warmer months where blueberries and zucchini are abundant! Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake for their flexibility; you can replace your fats (butter, oil) with yogurt or applesauce and still have a delicious, flavorful, and moist snack or breakfast. Add the pecans or leave them out and these are still a fantastic muffin.
These bars are perfectly thick and chewy and are a breeze to make! You can easily whip these up in one bowl, sifting the flower, adding blueberries; stir and bake. The flavor and texture of a blondie with a juicy pop of blueberry!
