Method

  1. Tip the flour, baking powder, oats, sugar and cinnamon into a bowl, then mix well with your hands. Add the butter, then rub it into the mixture until it has disappeared.

  2. Stir in the blueberries and pecans, add the egg, then mix well with a cutlery knife or wooden spoon until it all comes together in a big ball. Lightly flour the work surface, then roll the dough into a fat sausage about 6cm across. Wrap in cling film, then chill in the fridge until solid.

  3. To bake, heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/ gas 4. Unwrap the cookie log, thickly slice into discs, then arrange on baking sheets. Bake for 15 mins (or a few mins more if from frozen) until golden, leave on the trays to harden, then cool completely on a wire rack before tucking in.

These were delicious, and so easy to make. Great combination of blueberries and pecans. I'd forgotten how tasty pecans are. It was hard to tell when they were done because they still seemed a little pale after 15 mins, but once they were cool I realised any longer in the oven would have dried them out. I will definitely be making them again.

Just taken these out of the oven and they look great. Can't wait to have one with coffee. Very easy and like the fact the dough can be frozen. Like the idea of portion control from jellaway21 :-)

These are yummy, hot or cold! I used half blueberries and half glace cherries. I read the other reviews where it was mentioned that the dough is difficult to cut when frozen, so I sliced it before putting it in the freezer. Now I can take them out one at a time as required (it helps with portion control!) Will definitely make some more.

I replaced half the butter with apple sauce and they were still really tasty. They didn't however look as attractive as the ones in the picture. Still, it's the taste that counts.

Wonderful. Just had a warm one. I used jumbo rolled oats, walnuts and I added vanilla to the egg. I used 50g less sugar and a pinch of salt- they tasted sweet enough for me. 15 minutes at 175 and they were perfect. I agree with a previous poster who said that its not really worth using blueberries as the flavour declines in the oven.

Really great recipe, and so easy. I slice and freeze dough so easy to just grab hald a dozen cookies and bake (otherwise whole lot would get eaten!)

I'm not making these again - they were too good and I don't want to put on weight! I used dried cranberries and sultanas instead of the blueberries.

always get good comments when I make these, only amends I made were switching the blueberry and pecans for sultanas or raisins and add a little ginger... yummy
