The Ready Set Cook cooking challenge is being continued in one of my cooking groups, and in this second part, I am posting this recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

If you recall, a couple weeks ago I told you about #RSC, in that I have been presented with a limited list of cooking ingredients and am confined to that to develop recipes. It’s sort of like a chopped basket.

Here are links to the recipes I created a couple of weeks ago in Round One:

Curried Chicken Lollipops

Vodka Paloma

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Soup

Wild Rice and Mushroom Cabbage Rolls

My Curried Chicken Lollipops appear to be the most well received, although  I like them all. I think the ease of that recipe made it popular.

For the second round, the ingredients and courses have changed. The object is to select a course, and create a recipe using one of the main ingredients and anything from the pantry list but nothing else. I wonder…what would you have made with these?

As I play, I get to create one recipe per course category.  The cookies today represent my offering for desserts. I will be posting my breakfast, main dish, and condiment recipes in the coming days. Of course, I am only obligated to create one recipe per round, but I have such fun with it I do as many as I can!

Blueberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesI hope you enjoy these as much as we did here at my home. The blueberries in these are not overwhelming- similar to using raisins except with a brighter fruity flavor. Oatmeal cookies are always one of my favorite cookies. And having the chocolate in them sets them over the top, I think, especially since chocolate chip cookies are another favorite of mine. What kind of cookies do you like?

Stay tuned for the other recipes for #RSC. I should have all of those up by next Tuesday at the latest.

  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe Sue. The cookies are amazing. Made as written but omitted the nuts due to my hubby’s allergy. Excellent use of game ingredients. So happy that I tried these, they will be enjoyed often. Made for RSC 2018. BK
