Better Than TikTok’s Blueberry Cookies Recipe

This Blueberry Cookies recipe is based on the original Tik Tok version, but I’ve slightly shortened the author’s steps to make mine even easier and quicker to bake. While both are soft on the inside, crispy along the edges, and create an equally delicious dessert that’s bursting with blueberry flavor, my rendition is adapted for use with regular butter (hers uses vegan butter) and does not require the dough to be chilled prior to placing them in the oven.

So not only have I reduced the total time it takes to produce the perfect cookie from start to finish, but I’ve also made it so simple to use your pantry staples without an extra trip to the store. (feel free to use vegan butter if you prefer a completely vegan cookie). 

What makes these treats so special and sets them above the standard sweet, is that this recipe uses thawed frozen blueberries in place of the egg to create a soft and fluffy, slightly crunchy cookie with a color that is completely natural. Bursting with bites of blueberry and mixed-in melted white chocolate, these Blueberry Cookies taste like my favorite blueberry muffin in cookie form.

Did you know that blueberries are considered a superfood because they contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants with a multitude of health benefits? Best of all, baking with berries won’t affect the quality of their anti-inflammatory, immune boosting, heart-healthy properties and in my opinion, are the perfect ingredient for these cookies!

  • Quick and easy to make in under 30 minutes.
  • Only uses 7 simple ingredients.
  • Burst of blueberries flavor and creamy white chocolate in every bite.
  • Soft, sweet, and tastes like a blueberry muffin in cookie form.
  • Trendy recipe creates a delicious dessert made without eggs or milk–it’s vegan-friendly if you use vegan butter.
  • Fun color is naturally blue.
  • Blueberries are a superfood that contain antioxidant compounds that provide numerous health benefits.

Ingredients for Blueberry Tik Tok Cookies

  • Frozen blueberries: Fresh blueberries can also be used for this recipe.
  • Salted butter: To make this vegan, you can substitute this butter for vegan butter. You could also use unsalted butter instead, but add an extra pinch of salt if you decide to go that route. 
  • Granulated white sugar
  • Light brown sugar
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Vanilla almond bark: Vanilla almond bark is pretty cool in cookies because it tastes almost like marshmallows. However, you can use white chocolate chips instead. 

Substitutions and Additions

  • Change The Chocolate: I love the look and flavor of white chocolate in these cookies, but I know not everyone is a white chocolate person. You can substitute the white chocolate with slivered almonds, pistachio bits, dried blueberries, flaxseeds, or butterscotch chips.
  • Fruit Flavors: While I truly think this cookie tastes amazing with blueberries, you can experiment with strawberries, raspberries, cherries, or currants.
  • Boost Your Berry Flavor: Blueberry and lemon perfect pairing when it comes to desserts. Feel free to add some lemon zest for a subtle flavor boost.

How To Make Blueberry Cookies

This Blueberry Cookies recipe is even easier and quicker than the viral version and can be made using simple pantry staples in less than 30 minutes. With their natural blue color, these sweet treats are so much fun to eat–it’s like eating the best blueberry muffin baked in the form of a cookie.

  1. Heat the blueberries over medium high heat until they have thawed and become mushy, about 4-5 minutes.

  2. Set the heated blueberries aside to cool down until they are warm or cool to the touch.
    Pro Tip: For fewer blueberry chunks, you can cook the blueberries longer until you can easily smash them with a spoon.
  3. Beat the butter, white sugar, and light brown sugar together until creamy.

  4. Add the cooled blueberries and beat on high speed until completely combined.
    Pro-Tip: Make sure that you mix the blueberries in with the butter and sugar. If you try to fold them in afterwards, with the flour added, your cookies won’t turn out near as pretty. You’ll want to beat the blueberries into the butter and sugar really well. The more they are beaten, the better the color and rise on these cookies.

  5. Stir in the flour and baking powder and mix until just combined.
    Pro Tip: Do not overmix. 
    add flour into the batter
  6. Fold in the vanilla almond bark.
    Pro-Tip: I prefer to chop the almond bark a little bigger, but feel free to chop your chocolate as fine as you would like.

  7. Scoop out dough using a 1 ½-inch cookie scoop and place it on the sheet pan.

  8. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 9-10 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown and the cookies are set.

  9. Allow the cookies cool for at least 5 minutes before serving them warm or cold. Enjoy!
  • Do two batches of max 8 cookies instead of trying for one batch of 16. These cookies spread enough that 16 would not fit on one sheet pan.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: You can store these blueberry cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-5 days. For best results, place parchment paper or wax paper in between rows of cookies to keep them from sticking together.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze these cookies in a freezer-safe container for up to 6 months.

Blueberry TikTok Cookies FAQ

Why does my cookie dough look different than normal cookie dough?

This cookie dough will be very soft and flexible compared to other cookie doughs which is completely fine. Do not panic! The reason for this is because of the higher moisture content from the blueberries. Fruits tend to hold structure more, so even though the dough feels too soft, it won’t act like a dough with too much moisture.

Why did my chocolate become overcooked?

Vanilla almond bark melts pretty quickly, which means that any bark on the side of the cookie, touching the sheet pan, may get slightly overcooked and melted in the oven. When rolling your cookie dough, try to keep the almond bark pieces in the middle as much as possible.

Why does this recipe use frozen blueberries?

The author of the original recipe specifically calls for frozen blueberries because “when you thaw frozen blueberries, they become soft, jammy, and sweet, and are the perfect addition to the wet ingredients.”

Should you rinse frozen blueberries before baking?

Yes, rinse and dry frozen blueberries before baking with them.

How do you keep blueberries from sinking in batter?

You can toss your blueberries in a tablespoon of flour to keep them from sinking (just use a tablespoon less in your batter if you do this).

  1. Do I have to heat the blueberries or can I just let them thaw out on their own? I have frozen wild BB and they take no time thawing out as you know they are a quarter of the size as store bought.

  2. These look amazing! If anyone is baking these for vegans, besides using vegan butter make sure to check the almond bark/white chocolate chip ingredients!! Most have milk in them.

  3. 3 stars
    I think reader should be advised to drain blueberries because otherwise the batter is way too runny and doesn’t back up well. I had to add more flour.

  4. 3 stars
    Not sure what I did wrong, perhaps mixed it to long? They didn’t spread and are darker in color then the picture. Taste ok.
