Ingredients and notes
- Oat mix - I used Purely Elizabeth's Superfood Oatmeal for this recipe. It'a a great mixture of rolled oats, flax seeds, quinoa flakes, chia seeds, etc. If needed, you can substitute with just rolled oats. Feel free to add in a spoonful of any seeds if you want as well like flax seeds or chia seeds.
- Coconut sugar - Used to sweeten the cookies. Substitute with granulated sugar or light brown sugar if needed.
- White chocolate chips - Use a dairy free brand to make these cookies completely dairy free. If you aren't concerned about making these cookies dairy free, then any type of white chocolate chip will work.
Step by step directions
These oatmeal white chocolate chip cookies are so easy to make! You will need a mixing bowl, a hand mixer or stiff whisk, and a spatula.
Step 1 : Mix the wet ingredients with coconut sugar
First, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Mix well until the coconut sugar is well dissolved.
Step 2 : Add in the flour and oats
Add the oat flour, oat mixture, and baking soda to the bowl and fold into the batter. Be sure not to over mix the batter in this step.
Step 3 : Add mix-ins
Finally, add the white chocolate chips and cranberries to the cookie batter and mix well. This is best done with a rubber spatula to make sure the mix-ins are well disbursed into the batter.
Use a medium (about 2-oz) cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls on a baking sheet. If you want, press a few extra white chocolate chips into the cookie dough. Then bake in the oven until golden brown.
How to store
When stored correctly, these cookies will remain soft and chewy! Allow them to cool down before transferring the cookies to an airtight container with a lid. They will keep for up to 5 days out on the counter.
You can also store them in the fridge where they will stay fresh for up to a week.
Here are a few pointers to make sure your oatmeal cookies turn out perfect!
- Don't over-mix the batter. Because these cookies have both oat flour and rolled oats, too much mixing can lead to a dry batter and a dense, heavy cookie.
- I like to press some extra white chocolate chips and cranberries into each cookie dough ball before baking them in the oven. This is how you make sure there are some on top of each cookie after they are baked.
- Because this recipe uses coconut sugar, they are darker in color when baked. You will know the cookies are done when the edges have a crispy dark brown color.
- Allow the cookies to cool down before moving them off the baking sheet.
