Ingredients and substitutions

Fresh blueberries work best in this recipe. You could use frozen blueberries if necessary, in which case add a little extra flour if the dough seems too wet.

I sweetened these cookies with coconut sugar. I like using coconut sugar in baked goods because it has a lower glycemic index than regular white table sugar.

This recipe calls for coconut oil. You can substitute any type of unsweetened nut butter or seed butter.

I used whole wheat flour in these cookies. You can substitute all purpose flour if you prefer.

How to make them

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next you’ll add the whole wheat flour and baking powder to a large mixing bowl, then mix well.
