The Hungry Swimmer: Blueberry Cookies

If you have as big of a sweet tooth as me, here is another cookie recipe! I am always looking for new ways to incorporate dessert into my day. After dinner, lunch, and sometimes even breakfast. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it can fit into any of these categories. These blueberry cookies are full of plump blueberries and velvety white chocolate for an irresistible flavor combination.

You can ask anyone who knows me but I am a huge cookie girl. My favorite dessert is cookies by a landslide! I’m not entirely sure why I love them so much, but trust me when I say I have the cookie-baking process down.

These cookies come out to be a nice, brown crisp around the edges. But when you bite into it, a warm and gooey sensation. Not to mention, the white chocolate is buttery and rich, with accents of sweet cream and a velvety finish.

I love this recipe because they come together quickly! These cookies are bright, soft and sweet. All you need is a couple pantry staples, some frozen blueberries, then you’re set! 30 minutes away from cookie goodness.

These are different and fun, especially for kids because they are bright purple. But these cookies can also be done with strawberries, cherries, or blackberries. This or

If you have leftover Halloween candy, you could substitute the white chocolate for fun-colored M&M’s.

As a swammer, I can confirm these would be a wonderful treat and surprise for your teammates after swim practice. This and a chocolate milk will make a perfect pair for your post-practice recovery snack.
