It’s time for blueberry crumble cookies baby!!
These crumbly oaty cookies are bursting with juicy blueberries and creamy nut butter. Serve them with a cup of tea and you’ll have yourself a little slice of heaven. They’re packed with goodness, naturally sweetened, vegan and gluten-free. It doesn’t get much better than that.
HOW TO ENJOY YOUR BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE COOKIES
In my humble opinion, these blueberry crumble cookies are best enjoyed dunked into a steaming hot cup of tea or coffee. They’re the ultimate dunker; soft but not soggy…
But, although there is something so utterly satisfying about tea and biscuits, they are also great on their own. Make them for a friend or have them all for yourself. Here are some more ideas to make the most of your beautiful batch:
For Breakfast: Crumble one of these cookies over a bowl of fresh fruit and yoghurt for the most delightful breakfast. It’s like granola, but better.
For Dessert: Serve these blueberry crumble cookies warm straight from the oven with a generous scoop of icecream.
As An Ice Cream Sandwich: Sandwich some good quality vanilla ice cream or banana nice cream between two of these cookies for the ultimate summer treat.
TO DECORATE OR NOT TO DECORATE?
These cookies are fab as they are, but for added glamour, I like to
drench drizzle them in nut butter. Pictured here is cashew nut butter – it complements the blueberries perfectly. I have also tried them with almond butter and peanut butter, both of which are delicious. As well as adding to aesthetics, the nut butter provides a little extra protein to these blueberry crumble cookies, making them all the more nutritious.
I hope you love these blueberry crumble cookies as much as I do! I have been teasing you with pictures of these beauties for a little while now, but am so glad to be finally sharing them.

BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE COOKIES
Deliciously crumbly oaty cookies bursting with blueberries. Perfect for dipping in tea! Vegan, GF & healthy.
- 125 g (1 + ⅓ cups) rolled oats
- 100 g (¾ cup) gluten-free plain flour
- 75 g (¾ cup) ground almonds
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100 g (⅓ cup) honey/maple syrup
- 6 tbsp coconut oil
- 4 tbsp milk (I use oat milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 75 g (¾ cup) blueberries
To Decorate (optional)
- Nut butter (I used cashew butter)
Preheat the oven to 180°c fan/200°c/390°f and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Combine the oats, flour, ground almonds and baking powder in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, combine the honey/maple syrup, coconut oil, milk and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well to combine. Your mixture should be crumbly but hold together if pressed between your hands. If the mixture is too dry, mix in another 1-2 tbsp of milk. Add the blueberries and stir them through.
Form 8 large balls of the mixture and space them evenly on the lined baking tray. Use your fingers to flatten and form the cookies into circles. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden round the edges.
Allow the cookies to cool completely before drizzling with the nut butter (if using) and transferring into an airtight container to store in the fridge. Serve with a glass of milk or a cup of tea.
These cookies will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

A few ingredient notes:
- This recipe calls for gluten-free flour as it helps to give the cookies their crumbly texture. You could make these with regular plain flour, but be aware the texture will be different.
- If you are in the U.S. you may know ‘ground almonds‘ better as almond meal or almond flour.
- If you can find it, try to use raw honey as it is less processed. If using maple syrup make sure it is 100% maple syrup and not maple ‘flavoured’ syrup.
- I like oat milk in this recipe, but other plant-based milk or organic cows milk would work fine too.
- Use a vanilla extract and not a vanilla ‘essence’. You could also use the same amount of vanilla paste or powder if you wish.
