These White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies are soft, chewy and with added health benefits of cranberry seeds making them the BEST recipe!
White chocolate and cranberry go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re a classic match made in cookie Heaven and so delicious.
My ideal cookie is soft, chewy with crispy edges and these cookies tick all those marks.

step by step instructions
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
- Into a large bowl, add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
- Into the bowl of your stand mixer or a large bowl, add butter and cream for 1-2 minutes or until fluffy. Add in granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat an additional minute. Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- Slowly add in flour mixture and mix together just until combined.
- Fold in oats, cranberry seeds and white chocolate chips.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough on prepared tray. Place a few chocolate chips into the top of the dough and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
- For a twist, you could add 1/2 tablespoon orange zest when you add the vanilla and egg.
- You could make these with semi sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate in place of the white chocolate OR add both! Life’s short!
- Do I need to chill the dough?
- I did not chill the dough for these cookies. The reason to chill cookie dough is to prevent spreading but this cookies were not chilled and the the texture is perfect!
- Can I use sugar substitutes?
- To be quite honest, the first batch I baked, I used sugar substitutes and I was not happy with the final product. The cookies didn’t spread, tasted too sweet and were overall dry. I made a second batch with less sugar substitute and while they were less sweet, I ended up with the same results of dry hockey pucks. If you have a granulated sugar substitute and a brown sugar substitute you know and love, feel free to use them in place of the sugars in this recipe but I cannot guarantee you will have the same result.
