I adore blueberries. They're definitely one of my favourite summer fruits and I've been buying and eating them by the crateful! These cookies were inspired by our blueberry coconut mojitos recipe, and I won't lie... I was extremely nervous about how these would turn out! I was craving blueberries and lemon and mint and coconut, but wanted them in pastry form... so I took a leap of faith and made these cookies and am sooo happy with how delicious these babies turned out! If you're a blueberry lover, I promise you can't go wrong with these.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup coconut flakes
1 cup fresh (or frozen!) blueberries
1/4 cup of shredded mint leaves
Preheat your oven to 35 degrees. Sift together your dry ingredients while in a separate bowl, mix together your wet ingredients. Slowly mix both parts in together. Leave your blueberries for last and gently mix them in so that they don't explode and make a big mess! Then bake for 12-15 minutes.
*sidenote: not that it'll be a problem... but I recommend that you eat ALL of these the day you make them! I saved a half dozen of them and found that because of the milk and blueberries that the cookies got a little soggy the next day and weren't as scrumptious :) *
Enjoy these delicious summer treats!
