Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies


I was beginning to think that I couldn’t make a decent cookie.  My last attempt was a miserable cake-y, crumbly fail. Ahem. When I found this oatmeal cookie recipe in my Mom’s recipe file, I knew I had to try it. What could be better than a plain oatmeal cookie? An Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookie, that’s what!

Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are perfectly delicious, easy to make and apparently fail-proof. Ha!

  1. Oh my goodness those look so yummy! I hate baking cookies, but these may get me out of my baking slump…thanks for sharing all your great recipes with us!

  2. These do look yummy. I would have to make some adjustments for my food allergies…but I will be trying them. Thanks Myra!

  3. I grew up in the town where Northland Cranberries is located- I love cranberries! I have a similar recipe that uses white chips and some orange peel.

  4. I’ve been wanting to make some of these for quite awhile. I hate it when people put raisins in oatmeal cookies (sorry, Julie) but I love cranberries. 🙂 You said that you used “spelt” flour. What is that?

  5. Chocolate chip cookies are definitely my favorite! We actually call it our “feel good cookies” at home. Thanks for sharing this recipe, those cookies look yummylicious — it’s something both kids and adults would love!

  6. My husband is allergic to chocolate but subbing white chips would work and I’ll definitely try these cookies!

  7. Those look great! I actually make the same type of cookies, but I like to use the white chocolate chips. My friend actually gave me the recipe, and she calls them “Cowgirl Cookies.” I asked what “Cowboy Cookies” were and she said the same but with nuts. 😉

  8. Girls you gotta try these with the Cinnamon Chips that come out seasonally about this time of year…And try different dried fruits, blueberries, dates, cherries, apple bits…white chocolate chips or the small M&Ms instead of chocolate. My grown kids each have their opinion on which is the best combo.

  9. These look great. I’ve had a recipe for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies for over 30 yrs, and love them because the oatmeal seems to tone down the sweetness a bit. The last few years I’ve been adding cranberries or dried cherries to the recipe…yummy! I always double the batter and freeze it all into cookie balls. I bake a dozen at a time, and always have fresh cookies available when friends drop in.

  10. Do you have a print button on the site for recipes – my computor is not in the kitchen. Please reply by email! Thanks.

  11. I’m not a baker but came across this recipe to use up cranberries. How do you measure 2/3 cup of butter/how does that translate in tablespoons? lol

    1. Oh yay!! They should be fine until Christmas! Just keep them in an airtight container and maybe in the refrigerator. 🙂

  12. I made one batch yesterday, making the rest tomorrow – want these lovelies fresh for xmas – they are also so good when they are still warm.

  13. I have just put these cookies on to one large tray and am waiting for the oven to reach temperature while I finish my dinner and play outside. It is a rainy January night on the coast of Japan, the silkworms are asleep in their warm barn, and I am absolutely positive that these will be the perfect amazing cookies I am led to believe they are capable of being. Will let you know.

  14. Made these with my two children, 4 & almost 3. They wanted to bake cookies and I thought I would try to find something with cranberries in it. This was such a hit, simple to make and a whole lot of yumminess! The kids also loved rolling the dough into balls! I usually don’t have many staples, as i like to keep trying new things but I think this one is a keeper! Thank you!
