Soft, chewy, and loaded with white chocolate and cranberries, these oatmeal cookies are quick to whip up and the dough can even be made ahead of time for whenever that cookie-craving hits!
It’s cookie-baking season y’all. Don’t even try to stop me.
Granted, cookie season is pretty much a year-round kinda thing with me, but I totally take that up like 20 notches once November rolls around. Maybe the fact that it’s fuh-reeeezing and the general mindset I develop once the cold temps set in goes something like:
Hi, I’m Sarah and I like warm cookies. Seriously, who needs warm hugs when you can have warm cranberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies??
Frozen on the brain, apparently. Halp!
Today’s cookies were made possible thanks to the awesome folks behind Reynolds Kitchen who recently came out with pretty much any cookie-baker’s best friend: Pre-cut cookie baking sheets now at Walmart! I mean, seriously—how convenient is simply pulling out an already perfectly-sized piece of parchment paper for ALL your cookie baking adventures?? Easy prep + easy cleanup = definitely some pros I wanna keep.
So let’s talk white chocolate. And cranberries. And oatmeal. And the fact that you’re looking at my new favorite oatmeal cookie on planet earth.
Pssssst…a cookie addict can have multiple favorites. Just so you know…
These are just plainly and simply so.dang.awesome! Just like their sister recipe, these babies are extra-EXTRA chewy, loaded with texture, and even more loaded with gooey white chocolate and soft dried cranberries.
Loaded cookies = the best kind. Lookit’ how loaded!! Perfect. ♥
I included a make-ahead option in these cookies pretty much because hey, this time of year when the family’s all over, who wants to be stuck in the kitchen slaving over cookies?? With that in mind, there are two ways you can store the dough for these cookies. —>
Exhibit A: Make the dough, shape into balls and place on your (pre-cut!) parchment paper. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. Allow the dough to soften about 10 minutes, then bake as directed!
Exhibit B: Do all that was explained above, except stick those bad boys in the freezer for up to two MONTHS. Then, when that warm cookie craving hits…just thaw ’em and bake!
Not gonna lie—both options could prove to be dangerously easy. You know what I mean…
Can we all just agree that your Monday plans should probably include these cookies? Make one batch for the freezer/fridge and one batch for today!
Not bragging or anything, but I totally give the greatest cookie advice. 😀
Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup dried cranberries
- Place butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.
- In a medium separate bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to liquid mixture and beat on medium speed until a dough forms. Mix in white chocolate and dried cranberries until a dough comes together. (dough will be slightly sticky)
- Roll cookie dough into 1-in balls and place on Reynold's parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate dough balls 1 hour or up to 2 days.*
- Once dough is firm, remove from fridge and preheat oven to 350F. Bake cookies at 9-10 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden (cookies will appear underbaked---this is ok) Cool cookies on baking sheet 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Baked cookies may be stored in an airtight container up to 5 days.

These cookies look amazing, Sarah! I love oatmeal cookies, but the not kind with raisins, so these look just perfect. Cranberries and white chocolate were meant to be together. I think I would devour this entire batch!
Thanks Gayle! You for SURE need a batch of these in your cookie jar!

I can’t get enough cranberry right now and I love the idea of using them in an oatmeal cookie. They look perfectly delicious!
Cranberries are my everything right now too! Thanks for the kind words, Amy. 🙂
Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat says

Cookie season is the best and I’m totally down with a warm cookie a day especially if it’s a delicious looking oatmeal cookie 🙂 Soft and chewy cookies are my favorite and the white chocolate and cranberries are perfect together!

Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says
Hi, Sarah! I’m Cheyanne, and I like warm cookies too! But, I don’t want an intervention. I want to hoard ALL the warm cookies the land has to offer. ESPECIALLY these white chocolate and cranberry oatmeal cookies! These look beyond sensational, girl! I haven’t had breakfast yet and I’m thinking I just want a dozen (or two dozen) of these! Pinned! Cheers! 🙂
Haha! I’m glad I’m not the only one completely obsessed with warm cookies—they’re my weakness! Thanks for the super-kind words and for pinning, Cheyanne!

Ashley | The Recipe Rebel says
Cranberry and white chocolate is one of my FAVORITE fall combos (I think only tied with chocolate and mint… 🙂 ) — adding these cookies to my holiday baking list for sure!
Both those combos are totally my favs too! 🙂
Nicole ~ Cooking for Keeps says
I’m allllll about a chewy cookie! Especially when there’s oatmeal involved!
Chewy cookies for the win, right?? Thanks Nicole!
Oh my goodness! I had no idea you could get precut baking sheets!
Can’t wait to try these cookies!
YES! Those sheets are literally life-changing! Love it. 😀
Jessica @ Sweetest Menu says
I am ALL about the cookies at this time of year! These look magical Sarah. I’m pinning them now, perfect for Christmas!
Thanks for pinning and for the sweet words as always, Jessica! xoxo
Cranberries, white chocolate, and oatmeal is one of the best combinations on the planet! These cookies look perfectly chewy and delicious, and I can go for about a dozen!
Agreed! There’s just no beating that killer combo. 😉 Thanks Marcie!
Oh wow, wow, wow. I love cookies. In fact if we don’t have any in the house & I’m unwell my daughters look up recipes on my site and bake cookies. They prefer chocolate ones, me I love oats and chewing fruits and with these having white chocolate in them the girls are going to be totally on board. It’s entirely possible to have multiple favourite cookies and these need to be made & eaten by me ASAP! Thank you for a brilliant recipe. Sammie 🙂
Thank you Sammie! Definitely let me know if you or your girls give these cookies a try! 🙂
Kelley @ Chef Savvy says
These cookies look and sound fantastic Sarah! I love the cranberry white chocolate combo. Plus they are so pretty and perfect for the Holidays!
Aw thank you Kelley!!
James D. says
Thank you for this heart warming recipe !
id like to know can I sue regular flour instead of wheat flour? will it still come out ok.never made these cookies before but they sound good.
Regular all-purpose flour would work fine, Amy! Just make sure you use enough so that the cookie turns into a dough consistency—you might have to increase the flour a little bit from the original measurements.
