Blueberry Oatmeal Yogurt Cookies

I saw this recipe on Instagram the other night and had to try it.  It’s like eating your morning oatmeal but as a cookie! It looked simple, quick and not only do I love blueberries, but had all of the ingredients in stock and I knew these would make a great “Foodie Friday” treat to bring into my local gym. (Yes I bring samples of recipes from my blog to my gym on Fridays- I love my gym peeps!) The original recipe is from mindovermunch. The only change I made was adding the lemon juice, zest and cinnamon.  I love the added flavor they bring to the cookies but they certainly are good without. I may add some ground flaxseed next time. These are best when they are warm, right out of the oven but I did eat one cold as a pre-workout snack this morning! Check out her site as she offers e-books, so many other wonderful recipes and more – it’s amazing!
