Pumpkin White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

After a weekend of overtime, leaf raking, random power outages, and a backed up sewer line, I think it’s kind of amazing that I can say that there are actually a couple of these amazing cookies left! ;) The slight nuttiness from the oats blends perfectly with the pumpkin, and the sweetness of the white chocolate offsets the tartness of the cranberries.

All in all, an addictive cookie that makes for self-discipline issues when you are sitting right next to them! :) The flavors blend as they sit, and the cookies taste just as soft and fresh the second day as they do the day you make them. This makes them great cookies to make ahead of time for a special occasion.

Plus, these cookies have very little butter in them, half of the sugar can be swapped out for granulated sugar substitute, and white whole wheat flour can be used in place of all-purpose. Since they are so healthy and contain oats and pumpkin, these guys could possibly make a great breakfast on the go, or just a healthy dessert. . .whatever you feel like! ;)

  4. Liz says:

    These look festive enough for Christmas as well! Nice pics!

  5. Looks delicious. With these and and my white chocolate pumpkin spice cookies, we could have a giant party.

  6. These look so chewy and tempting – I love the white chocolate/cranberry combo!

  7. missy says:

    Why can you only swap out half of the sugar and not all of it?

  8. I love pumpkin and white chocolate together and I bet the cranberries are a stellar addition too!

  9. Self-control? What’s that? Certainly not something I could muster up in the presence of these cookies. Oatmeal, white chocolate and cranberry is my favorite cookie EVER, but adding pumpkin is such a fun, festive twist.

  10. These sound wonderful! And I love the idea of healthifying them even more + serving them as pumpkin breakfast cookies. YUM!

  11. I lack any sense of willpower. If there are three muffins on the counter; there’s a good chance I’m gonna be the one to eat them. For me, healthy is justification to eat more. These look amazing. Pinned.

    BTW, I found you in my spam folder. How rude of askimet to think of you as spam all of a sudden out of the blue. You’re out now, and I reprimanded it for misbehaving.
