Lemon Blueberry Cookies (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Lemon Blueberry Cookies.  I have been making cookies like crazy lately.  That is how these blueberry lemon cookies came about.  I have also been combining the flavors of lemon and coconut together quiet often.

After I made my lemon coconut fudge the other day, a reader suggested I do a lemon blueberry cookie.  Genius idea!  I am so glad I did because these lemon blueberry vegan cookies are so good!

While these delicious cookies are not flourless, they are gluten free and vegan.  I seriously could not stop eating them!  I love the bursts of juicy blueberries I got with every bite.  Yum!  I hope you enjoy them.

  1. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you post. You really have helped me take the,much neeed ,step to a whole food life, much easier. What can you sub for coconut butter? I have coconut oil?
  2. My dough came out quite thin and the cookies spread all over the pan. Not sure what happened. Flavor was good though so will try again.
  3. It looks so yummy! I have really enjoyed all your recipes. I have a lot of almond meal leftover from making almond milk, do you think it can be a replacement for the flour?
  4. Hi Melissa! They look delish! I do have one (really dumb) question that I've been meaning to ask. I noticed in a lot of your pictures your cookies are quite rounded and ball shaped. Is that the dough? Or do they actually bake that flat for you? I like my cookies little more flat than that so I'm just wondering if they would need to be smooshed. Sorry, I'm sure that's a ridiculous question but I'm new to healthy cookies and you never know how they're going to bake!
  5. How do I make coconut butter? I have some coconut. How long would I have to process it in my machine? thanks
  6. Hi Melissa, Making these now. only had a package of cocunut butter so added cocunut oil. Ive never baked with cocunut butter and it was hard...left little hard pieces in the batter. Was I supposed to melt it first? Will they still turn out ok? thanks...the batter is so yummy :)
      1. yes it was in my pantry. hmm. well the pieces were there after i had taken them out of the oven but they are still good.
    1. I have never used soy flour. I had no idea there was such a thing. Sorry it did not turn out for you. :(
  7. Wow these are fantastic!!!! So healthy and delicious! I made these with coconut oil and they turned out great! Thanks for another awesome reciepe Melissa !
  8. I'm about to attempt these using regular eggs instead of flax eggs (no dietary restrictions here, just like to change things up a bit). Wish me luck! Plus I have another use for all that coconut butter I made!
  9. I just made these using the fresh blueberries from my CSA crate this week. I followed the recipe and directions as written and they are AMAZING!!! OH MY GOSH wonderful cookie for this time of year. Thank you!
  10. Hi Melissa! I'd like to attempt to make these cookies today for a party. Would it be possible to substitute the oat flour for coconut flour, and if so, would the ratio be the same? If not, would you be able to please suggest a different kind of flour? I want to try and work with that I have. Thanks so much! Been loving your blog all up! :)
    1. Thanks Ali! Coconut flour is not an equal sub. You usually have to add lots of eggs. I think the rule for coconut flour is add 1 egg per every 1/4 cup coconut flour you use.
    1. Flax eggs are vegan egg replacements made from flax meal. You can use real eggs too. https://mywholefoodlife.com/advice/how-to-make-a-flax-egg/
  11. I have these baking in the oven now! I don't know how the cookies will turn out ... But the batter is delicious! I could just eat it with a spoon!
  12. I just made these with coconut oil and they turned out great! Do you have a suggestion for a replacement of the coconut butter due to an allergy to coconut? Would regular butter work just as well?
