Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies are a perfect combination of a delicious blueberry muffin and a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie. They always draw a crowd!
Cookies with Fresh Blueberries and Chocolate
I love blueberry muffins and I really love chocolate chip cookies.
For a while I've been wanting to develop a cookie that combines both of these delectable treats.
I happen to think blueberry muffins are typically blueberry cake in the shape of a muffin, and that's why I wanted these cookies to have somewhat of a cake-like texture.
They're indeed a cake-like cookie recipe with crispy edges and pops of delicious, fresh blueberries and decadent, melting chocolate.
What makes this recipe special?
Aside from the amazing texture and flavor, these cookies are glazed.
You might be looking at the images wondering where exactly the glaze is. It's there -- it's a very translucent thin coat over the top surface of each cookie.
And while it might seem odd to treat this sort of cookie in this manner, with a glaze, that is -- doing so creates the most wonderful super thin "crust," that will keep you reaching for more and more cookies!
Sometimes it's all in the details.
What's in this recipe?
- fresh blueberries
- semisweet chocolate
- all-purpose flour, baking soda
- brown sugar
- granulated sugar
- fine salt and coarse salt
- vanilla extract
These ingredients are combined in a way that creates the most delicious cookies ever!
Can you freeze them?
Yes you can. However, do not freeze them with the glaze. Add the glaze after they've been thawed and you're ready to serve them.
I hope you enjoy every last crumb of this over-the-top, delicious Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Glazed Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
For the glaze
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh blueberries, finely chopped into a pulp
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
For the cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup packed golden brown sugar
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
- about 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
For the glaze
- In a small bowl, combine the sugar, blueberry pulp and flour. Mix until it's as smooth as possible. Set aside.
For the cookies
- Set the oven and prep the baking sheets. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Make the batter. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, both sugars, salt and vanilla. Mix until it's smooth.Add the eggs and mix until it's as smooth as possible. It might look lumpy at this stage -- don't worry, as it will even out when you add the flour.Add the flour and baking soda and mix only until the flour is completely incorporated. (Do not mix any more than necessary.)
- Add mix-ins. Gently fold in the blueberries and chocolate. Some of the blueberries will break as you fold them in -- that's okay.
- Shape. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to shape the cookies into dollops (1 to 2 tablespoons each), about 2 inches apart, on the parchment-covered baking sheets.
- Glaze. Use a pastry brush to very lightly coat the surface of each dollop with the glaze. (If you don't have a pastry brush, you can use a teaspoon to drizzle it on top, and then spread it with the back of the spoon.)Sprinkle each one with a bit of the coarse salt.
- Bake. Bake in the preheated 350°F oven just until the cookies are golden along the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. They should still look doughy when you remove them from the oven -- they will firm up a bit as they cool.
- Cool. Leave them on the baking sheet to cool for at least 15 minutes.

What a unique, but deliciousl idea! I can just taste the combination of flavors and can imagine that that glaze just gilds the lily! Wonderful cookie, Valentina!
Do you think frozen blueberries would work? I would rather use fresh, but I live in Illinois, and since they aren't in season here, they are very expensive. Thanks! 🙂
Hi Shannon, I do think they'd work, but since I haven't tested it that way, I'm not exactly sure how the texture might change. I would thaw them completely and then toss them is just a bit of flour -- just to barely coat them. Let me know how it goes! 🙂
Oh my goodness! My husband's favorites are chocolate and blueberries! This is a must make recipe at my house!
Hope he likes them, Deb. 🙂
These beauties have such a sweet old timey look about them. I really need to know how they taste! xo
These are really some goodlooking fluffy cookies. I can imagine the burst of blueberries in every bite, yummy.

Brilliant! The best of both worlds for sure - no one in my family would object to this delicious choc/blueberry combo 🙂
Thank you! Hope you try them! 🙂
Have you tried making and freezing the dough? If so, how long does it stay good for? (I like to have things handy for when unexpected guests drop by). Thanks!
Hi Vikki- I haven't frozen this particular cookie dough before, but I often make, shape and freeze cookie dough. I think 4 to 6 weeks is a good limit. (Longer will be okay, just not quite as good.) I love having cookie dough at the ready, too! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
How on earth did I miss this recipe! I must try this.
Yay! Happy you took a look. 🙂 xoxo

Wow, I've never had a cookie cookie like this before that's for sure. The combination of blueberries and chocolate sounds so good not just in terms of flavor, but also in terms of texture.

A couple of my fave ingredients - blueberries and chocolate!! What a wonderful cookie, Valentina! I'm having coffee right now and totally missing these! Have to give 'em a try soon...they look too tempting!
What a fun idea to do a blueberry muffin / chocolate chip cookie mash up. These look fantastic, Valentina!

You had me at blueberry! This is a super unique cookie idea, Valentina, and I know I'd be all in on these. I love blueberry muffins, and these cookies totally remind me of the tops of blueberry muffins. The chocolate chunk is a fun way to mix it up, too!
Yes, like the top of the muffin. Love that. Thank you, David! 🙂 ~Valentina

Valentina, This is the most clever use of blueberries I have seen! As chocolate covered blueberries are a favorite of mine, I know I will love these cookies.
Delicious. Made them with my grand daughter (she was the baker and I was her assistant).
Yay! This makes me so happy. I used to love baking and cooking with my grandmother, and my mom. Luck granddaughter you have. Thank you for sharing, and for checking out my recipes. Enjoy! 🙂 ~Valentina
Wow! Was feeling in need of a cozy baked treat, craving cookies while by my lonesome in quarantine (apart from my black cat, and during the start of Spooky Season, no less!) and wanted to use what was in my kitchen — blueberries and chocolate chips! What divine luck that yours was the first recipe I came across — serendipity!
Yay! Thanks for this comment. Makes me happy. I hope you loved the cookies and that they hit the spot. Always good to have a cute pet around. 🙂 ~Valentina
