    White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

    White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

    I love baking cookies, especially for the holiday season. My dad loved oatmeal cookies, so I wanted to create an oatmeal-based cookie in his honor this year. Normally I would put raisins in my oatmeal cookies, but I wanted a more Christmasy flavor profile. I therefore used dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. I also used oat flour, which I make myself by milling oatmeal in my baby food processor. My daughter proclaimed the new recipe the best that she has ever tasted! You can even make a batch weeks before the holidays and freeze the cookies for eating later.

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cups of butter
    • 1 cup of brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 cups of oat flour
    • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 3 cups of oats
    • 2 cups of diced dried cranberries
    • 1 cup of white chocolate chips

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
    3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture.
    4. Whisk together the oat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
    6. Slowly add the oats to the dough
    7. Add the diced dried cranberries to the dough
    8. Add the white chocolate chips to the dough.
    9. Place 1-inch balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. The cookies spread out while cooking, so leave at least an inch between each ball.
    10. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
    11. Allow the cookies to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
    12. Store the white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies in an airtight container.
