Spiced White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Spiced White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

While tagging this post to put it in the proper categories, I came to realize that most of my cookie recipes have oats in them.  That’s a lot of cookies. . .at least there should be no question in your mind as to what my favorite kind of cookie is! :) There is just something about the chewy nuttiness of oats that makes cookies containing the ingredient so good!

Spiced White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are no different. Take a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie, up the spices and swap out the raisins for white chocolate chips, and you have one of my new favorite oatmeal cookies. These cookies are loaded with cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of ginger and cloves so that you can actually taste the spice instead of the spices being overpowered by chocolate or other ingredients.

While I’m usually more of a dark chocolate fan, the creamy richness of the white chocolate is just what these cookies need. And, of course, they are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside cookie when you take them from the oven!

Spiced White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen


  • 3/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 C regular oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1/4 C butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • 1/3 C white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together sugars and butter. Add in honey, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat until creamy.
  4. Slowly add in dry ingredients and beat until just combined. You may need to finish stirring by hand using a wooden spoon. Stir in white chocolate chips.
  5. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10 min or until just starting to turn golden brown.
  7. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

  37. Hi! I found your website through Pinterest and now that I’ve been looking around drooling at everything I’d like to recommend that you put all your recipes into a cookbook! I would absolutely buy it and get copies for my sisters and my mama! I can’t get over how fantastic your recipes are! I especially love the “healthy twist” you’ve put on them, like baked doughnuts with whole wheat flour! AWESOME!!! Keep up the great work! I’m pinning and emailing and am definitely following you in my blog reader!

  38. I just made these cookies and they are absolutely delicious! However, I didn’t have any ginger or cloves so I improvised and left them out. The cookies were still amazing! I’m sure the ginger would’ve made them 100x better, but the recipe is still perfect without it. Thanks! I’ll be trying some of your other recipes in the future :)

  39. Found this recipe on Pinterest and it’s AWESOME! Making a double batch today. Thanks!

    These are seriously amazing and addictive. I was a little scared to put all those spices in there, but they give so much dimension and really make the white chocolate chips pop. I added some craisins, too, since I just got a package from the States with a few bags of dried cranberry goodness inside. Yay! Let’s just say that the first dozen I baked disappeared immediately, and there were only us two adults around to eat them.
