These White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies are a family favorite. They’re loaded with dried cranberries, sweet creamy white chocolate chips, and good for your heart oatmeal.
I originally posted this recipe in 2009 and have made it countless times since then. When I was baking them again recently with my daughter and grandson, my daughter looked at the pictures on the post and said I should update this post with new pictures. So I did.
Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod posted this scrumptious cookie recipe on her blog in 2008. She’s kind of the cookie queen. It is a nice blend of sweet and tart.
I like to add whole wheat pastry flour to boost the nutrition just a bit. I also like to chill the dough for 30 minutes when I have the time. King Arthur Flour has a good article on why you should be chilling your cookie dough.
If you haven’t tried this one yet, you really should!
White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 ¼ cup flour or 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter softened
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 ¼ cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup Craisins
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
- In large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add flour mixture and mix just until blended. Add oats, Craisins, and white chocolate.
- Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
- Bake at 375° for 8-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown, but the center is still soft. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
These are delicious, so yummy!
Thanks so much Brenda!
These were tasty, but the cooking time didn’t seem adequate. Did you use a convection oven? I use a regular oven and had to put mine in for about 5 – 7 minutes longer. Also, the directions don’t seem to match the ingredients. There is no margarine in the list, but you mention it in the directions, and you say “1 cup sugar and brown sugar” when you list just 1/2 C each.
Nice pix, though!
Hi Ann – glad you enjoyed the cookies. No, I don’t use a convection oven. I’m surprised your cookies took 17 minutes to cook. That’s a long time for cookies. How long did you chill the dough? I corrected the directions – thanks for the heads up.
Definitely one of my family’s favorite cookies! Yum!
WOW !! Yammy Cookies …delicious looking. thanks for sharing ..

Hey, I made these cookies this morning. I was in a rush and could not take pictures. I will next time. I may make some more tonight. I took them to my Thursday Afternoon book club. Guess what? Not one was left! Thanks for this recipe. They were really good and almost guilt-free!
White chocolate and cranberry together sounds DREAMY!
Looks like a nice crust and texture you got there. Always appreciate whole wheat recipe like this.
These look wonderful! My husband loves white chocolate, and would be so happy with a batch of these!
Definitely give them a try! I made another batch last night. It makes about 2 dozen cookies.
Nina thanks for the awards!
