Oatmeal Blueberry Cookies with Lemon and Cinnamon

Who doesn't love cookies? These are one of my favourite to go to when I am feeling like a cookie. They're soft and thick and chewy. I adapted the recipe from this one. I decided to lift up the flavours with a big punch of cinnamon and lemon. I absolutely love em now! So much more. These are also my DH favourite cookies, and he's a sucker for blueberries so it's a win win all around! Try em, they're easy and tasty.

oatmeal blueberry cookies with lemon and cinnamon
Raspberries would work good too!

100g butter softened
200g dark brown sugar
150g oats
125g self-rising flour
1 large egg
1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
200g frozen or fresh blueberries (raspberries would work well too!)
Zest of one lemon
Juice of half a lemon (approx. 1 tbsp.)

To Start:
Sift the flour baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
In a larger bowl cream together softened butter, sugar, lemon juice, zest and egg until light and fluffy.
Slowly combine the flour mixture with the wet mixture until smooth.
When combined slowly add in the berries and oats until well combined.

To bake:

I get about 14-18 cookies with a heaped table spoon on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 175C or 350F for about 12 minutes.
Check frequently because all ovens vary.
I like my cookies a bit underdone and chewy so 12 minutes works for me.
Allow to cool completely before eating.
