Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
2. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. 
3. If using dry oats, add these to a food processor and pulse until the oats have a flour-like consistency. If using oat flour, skip this step. 
4. Add all ingredients but the blueberries to the food processor. Process until the ingredients form a smooth batter. 
5. Add blueberries to the food processor, pulse for one second 5 – 10 times 
6. Spoon the batter onto the baking sheet to form 18 2” cookie rounds. Space the cookies to allow for spreading. 
7. Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies have a lightly browned base
8. Give the cookies 3-5 minutes to cool before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cookies can be stored covered in the refrigerator for a week, or frozen for a month, and still taste fresh
