Besides chocolate chip cookies, my next favorite kind of cookie are oatmeal cranberry white chocolate chip cookies. I’ve tried about three or four recipes of these, and these have to be about the best ones. I have made these before, but not mini style! Ever since I made my last batch of chocolate chip cookies mini, I have been obsessed.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition.

Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets. Be sure to slightly flatten the balls so that they look more like cookies and less like balls.

These cookies are chewy, just like my mini chocolate chip cookies. Quite delicious, I must say. I always use the excuse that these cookies are somewhat healthy because they have cranberries and oats. How can they not be slightly healthy? 🙂
