White Chocolate Cranberry Oat Cookies

These White Chocolate Cranberry Oat Cookies are chewy, sweet but not too sweet, and feel healthier because they have oats and nuts too...an all-around great cookie.

  • 1 C butter softened
  • 1 C granulated sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 C old fashioned oats
  • 2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1, 12 oz package white chocolate chips
  • 1.5 C craisins aka dried cranberries
  • 1.5 C chopped walnuts optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C)
  • Cream butter and sugars together until smooth
  • Stir in the eggs and vanilla until well combined
  • Add the baking soda, salt & flour (½ C at a time) and mix until dough is formed
  • Stir in the white chocolate chips, craisins, walnuts & oatmeal until mixed throughout the dough
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons about 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15mins until edges are browned slightly
  • Remove from the oven and transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Once completely cooled, store in an air-tight container


*Recipe substitutions and variations:
  • Use a different nut. Not into walnuts? Try pecans instead!
  • Skip the nuts all together. Don't have, or don't like, nuts in your baked goods? Simple skip this ingredient.
  • Add cinnamon. My family has never had cinnamon as a part of this family recipe, however, it would be a wonderful addition! Add ½ - 1 teaspoon into your dough along with the other dry ingredients.
*Cook time assumes you are putting one cookie sheet in at a time (and this recipe yields more than one cookie sheet's worth of cookies).
*You can freeze baked cookies to enjoy at a later date! Place desired amount to save in a plastic bag and squeeze to remove any air. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw at room-temperature before serving.
