Oooey Gooey Blueberry Oat Cookies

GBGF Oat Blueberry Cookies 16

Oats, oats, oats.

That’s fun to say.

(Elf, anyone? When Will Ferrell goes, “Francisco…Francisco. That’s fun to say!”)

But really, oats are just as much fun as they are to eat.

Last week for the Bachelorette, some friendsicles of mine came over to watch. After all, the hometowns episode is a big one!

I wanted to make something sweet, but without too much butter. And I had a big ol’ bag of oatmeal that I was ready to make a dent in. So, I set out looking for an oat-y treat. The internet served me well, as I came across this.

And I decided to incorporate my plethora of almonds into this concoction. So, I ground some almonds in my food processor, into an almond meal- instead of using an oat flour.

Now. I do have to offer up a word of caution. These cookies are more like gooey goodness. They are deeee-licious. But they do not hold their form tremendously well. But that kind of adds to their allure. Ooey gooey sweetness. With a fork. And napkins.

It melts in your mouth.

1/2 c. olive oil

1/3 brown sugar

1 egg
