Wild Blueberry Chocolate Cookies

Wild Blueberry Chocolate Cookies

Larisa Litvin Recipe 5 Comments

Delightfully fruity and just sweet enough – these wild blueberry chocolate cookies are packed with flavor and deliciousness. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, they’re the right size to share with your love and chocolate is said to be a natural aphrodisiac 😉

I used dried wild blueberries in this recipe which I usually buy them Trader Joe’s. If you can’t find dried blueberries, dried currants would be wonderful too.

The dough can be frozen and baked at a later time.

Wild Blueberry Chocolate Cookies

Yields 50 Cookies
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Aluminum-Free Baking Powder
  • 1/4 lb Butter (plus extra for greasing)
  • 1/3 cup Unrefined Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Dried Wild Blueberries
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Rub in the butter with the fingertips until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  2. Mix in the sugar, salt, cocoa powder, and blueberries. Add the beaten egg and vanilla extract, and stir to form a smooth dough.
  3. Shape the dough into 2 logs (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter) on a large sheet of parchment paper. Roll to give smooth sides. Wrap the dough in the parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and preferably overnight or up to 3 days. The dough can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  5. Lightly butter baking sheets. Use a sharp knife to cut the log into 1/2-inch-thick slices. If you like, press each cookie between palms of the hands for smoother edges. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on the baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  7. Remove from baking sheets with thin metal spatula while still warm.

  1. Hello. Delightful recipe. Will try! I am so happy to see you mention freezing the dough. I’ve been doing that with my doughs but was discouraged after reading about ayurvedic guidelines not use leftovers or frozen foods. Please would you clarify that? I’m so hopeful though. Thank you.

    1. Hi Irina,

      The cookies is a desert, which can not be considered a daily meal.
      Freezing the dough in this recipe is just a convenient option for a busy lifestyle.
      The homemade cookies have a nutritious value, they don’t contain any artificial additives nor preservatives, hence they are a great alternative to store bought cookies, especially during holiday season.
      I hope you will enjoy this recipe! 💕

      1. Thank you. I understand. Will definitely make these.
        Would you say freezing half of prepared soup for another day is a bad idea? I have been doing it to save time but still feed my family nutritious homemade meals made from scratch. This leftover rule really turned my world upside down! Thank you.

        1. Well, yes….
          Freezing prepared dishes is a classical example of the leftovers.
          I wouldn’t freeze a wonderful home-made soup, which is full of Prana while it’s fresh. By the time you re-heat it, Prana will be gone. 😞
