Not your ordinary oatmeal cookies! Blueberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are bursting with dried blueberries and chunks of white chocolate. It makes these oatmeal cookies fabulous. A slightly plump oatmeal cookie with a hint of cinnamon and crispy edges. A great treat and a nice change from the ordinary.
Not only have dried blueberries taken over my cookies, I also use them in my granola, muffins and snack mixes. Anywhere you might think to use dried fruit is where you’ll want to throw in a handful of plump and chewy blueberries. The blueberries are fantastic with the white chocolate in these cookies, but equally delicious in granola with yogurt too. They are my new favourite dried fruit and I’m putting them in everything these days. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Let’s celebrate National Almond Day with cookies! Almond Oatmeal Cookies to be exact. These little gems highlight the almond by using sliced almonds, almond butter and pure almond extract. Crispy around the edges, slightly soft at the centre, and scattered with crunchy almond bits is reason to celebrate. Lovely almond flavour without being too sweet makes these Almond Oatmeal Cookies a nice treat with your favourite cup of coffee or tea.
I’m a nut lover in general, but almonds and cashews are my favourite. Almonds because of the crunch and how they’re great in any imaginable way. Roasted, coated, ground, slivered or sliced, they’re always delicious. Also because of their nutritional value. They pack a lot of nutrition in one small handful. One ounce of natural almonds gives you 6 grams of protein, and 3.5 grams of fibre for only 160 calories. Plus numerous other health benefits like helping with weight loss, lowering cholesterol and a good source of antioxidants. Yes, they’re pretty terrific in cookies but try tossing them in your salad, granola or a coating for chicken. So many possibilities make them easy to enjoy.
It doesn’t have to be National Almond Day to enjoy Almond Oatmeal Cookies. Make a batch and freeze for lunches or snacks and enjoy them all month. If they last that long!

Pepper in your cookies anyone? Pink Peppercorn Cherry Biscotti are buttery, peppery and sweet. A truly delightful crunchy combination. Now is the time to start thinking about holiday baking and these biscotti scream out holiday with the red cherries, spattering of pink peppercorns and drizzle of white chocolate.
While pink peppercorns are not actually a pepper but rather a dried berry, they still have a distinct peppery flavour. They are fantastic with fruit, in creamy desserts and sauces. For anyone who has been following me, you will remember they were difficult for me to find when I was making Grilled Salmon with Pink Peppercorn Tartar Sauce. I eventually purchased them on Amazon. I still have plenty left, so don’t be surprised to find more great recipes using pink peppercorns appear from time to time. A tablespoon or two at a time takes a while to use, but since they travelled all the way from England I will definitely be using every speck.
I love this recipe because biscotti is so versatile. The cookie dough can take on a wide array of flavours, nuts and fruits. It really is just your imagination that limits you. These in particular are slightly spicy from the pepper, buttery and crunchy, while the white chocolate adds just enough creamy sweetness to balance it all. They are fantastic!
