INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oats, quick-cooking or old-fashioned (not instant)
  • 2 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried blueberries, (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger, chopped (see Tip)
  • PREPARATION

    1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 375°F.
    2. Whisk flour, wheat germ, baking soda, salt and ground ginger in a small bowl. Whisk egg, brown sugar, oil and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; stir to combine. Add oats, chocolate, blueberries and crystallized ginger; stir just to combine. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto 2 ungreased baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart.
    3. Bake the cookies until puffed and barely golden around the edges, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on the pans for 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    TIPS & NOTES

    • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
    • Tip: Dried cranberries or cherries will also work in place of blueberries; all can be found, along with crystallized ginger, in the baking, dried fruit or produce sections of many supermarkets and natural-foods stores.
    • Storage smarts: To extend the life of your baked goods, store them in an airtight container in a single layer or between layers of parchment paper to prevent sticking.
