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!

These sound great!
They look so fabulous, I bet they taste heavenly.
Okay, I found your blog of Honey B’s site! I just love this recipe. I am definitively gonna try it. Definitely. I love cranberries. Thanks for sharing it with us!
These look really yummy. I love white chocolate. Wal-Mart always had the best (Sam’s Choice) — pure cocoa butter, no hydrogenated fats. They just discontinued them and I cried for a week. Nestle doesn’t have a drop of cocoa butter in theirs. So now I buy Ghirdadelli which is milk fat. I miss the Sam’s Choice white chocolate chips, they were so good.
I love the looks of these cookies Barbara! Great combo with cranberry and white chocolate. Have a great day!
I saw these on Maria’s blog too, I so want to try them. Yours look so good!
I was looking for a cookie to bake today…this sounds like a good one for my kids (and me!).
White chocolate and cranberries. Yum, yum. Guess I better put this on my to-do list for today.
Glad you tried the recipe! I like the addition of whole wheat!! Nice job, they look perfect!
Yum! I love the combination of oatmeal, cranberries and white chocolate. I just bought whole wheat pastry flour but I keep forgetting to use it! Thanks for the reminder!
I agree that Maria’s blog is awesome. I just saw your blog linked in the sltrib article and thought I would come over and check it out!
These cookies look delicious!
They looks absolutely delicious Barbara. I adore oatmeal cookies and I firmly believe that white chocolate and cranberry is one of the best ever combinations!
These look delicious, I like the addition of wheat flour to add a little nutrition.
YUM! They look absolutely delicious!
Lately these are my favorite cookies from a little bakery around here, but I just can’t get the cookie right when I make it. I’m excited to finally have a real recipe!
Sure you made them for the boys…lol!
I bet that they were really delicious right out of the oven!
The combo of cranberries and white chocolate is so delicious! And the oatmeal makes them healthy, too!!

Oh yum! Don’t these look good? I’m with Cathy–two sparkling reviews is good enough for me!
I remember thinking that I need to make these when I saw them on Maria’s blog. Now that I’ve heard two great reviews, I am trying them for sure! I think a few of these would beat lunch any day!
