Saskatoon Berry Oatmeal Cookies

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” Barbara Jordan
Saskatoon Berry Cookies1

The berries from our local Saskatoon Berry farm are out of this world. While they do grow wild around here the farmed ones are much more tender and juicy than the wild. If you’re a Saskatoon Berry fan as I am, you may be on the lookout for different ways to serve these instead of simply baking them in a pie.

While I have several other Saskatoon berry recipes on this blog, here’s a new one. I picked up this cookie recipe last time I was at the farm, and changed it a little to make it more interesting.

Saskatoon Berry Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup medium unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups Saskatoon berries

Directions

  • Using an electric mixer, combine butter, sugars, egg, milk and almond extract until light and fluffy.
  • Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and add to the butter mixture.
  • Add the rolled oats and coconut, mix thoroughly and then very gently stir in the Saskatoon berries. Be careful not to break them. You don’t want purple cookie dough!
  • Place the dough in the fridge for 1 hour, then drop by spoonfuls on to parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 – 14 minutes.

    I used frozen Saskatoons, thawed slightly, to help reduce breakage when mixing. Worked great. Thanks for the recipe. My new fav cookie! ( and that says a lot. I bake for my husband and friends but I never eat it… until now)

    • Using them slightly thawed is a great way to prevent purple cookies! Great idea. Glad you like them. Just think of all those antioxidants and other nutrients you’re getting from those healthy little berries!

  4. Looks delicious, thanks for the great recipe, I featured it on my blog🙂 http://www.colorfulcanary.com/2015/08/12-scrumptious-serviceberry-recipes.html
