Love blueberry muffins with streusel, and big soft cookies?? If you answered YES then you need to try these fabulous and flavourful Blueberry Muffin Cookies! Your friends and family will love these for breakfast, brunch, snack time, or anytime.
Fresh or frozen blueberries are paired with a big soft tender cookie and topped with the perfect amount of streusel make these blueberry cookies the best cookies you’ll make this year!
Blueberry Muffin Cookies
These are the best mash-up of cookies and muffins ever! I love a good muffin topped with streusel, and I love a good soft chewy cookie. Add some frozen blueberries to the mix and these cookies are over-the-top amazing!
Do I need Frozen or Fresh Berries for this recipe?
You can use either for these cookies! Now I will tell you that the lovely blue color comes from using frozen berries because they have a way of cooking down quicker.
Fresh blueberries work just fine as well! They don’t pop as easily as the frozen berries while baking so be aware that your cookies will be less blue. If that even matters to you? If it does matter to you then toss your fresh berries in the freezer for an hour and boom you have frozen berrie.
Fresh blueberry cookies are so delicious but I kinda like the blue of frozen berries!
What kinds of blueberries not to use in this recipe
Do not use canned blueberries for this recipe, they are not the kind of blueberries you want in this cookie recipe. They’re already soft and gushy in the can. And when you drain off the juice they’re just not as tasty as they should be.
Freeze-dried blueberries don’t work in this recipe. As well as plain dried blueberries! The flavor, color, and texture of these cookies depend on the fresh or frozen berries.
What Ingredients do I need to make these cookies?
- brown sugar
- softened butter
- all-purpose flour
- frozen blueberries
- lemon zest (optional!)
The lemon zest is optional in these blueberry cookies, whether you use it or not is a personal preference. Some people don’t care for lemon and blueberry. I happen to LOVE lemon and blueberry but you don’t have to use the zest to make these cookies.
