Oatmeal, cranberry and white chocolate chunk biscuits

Jan 15, 2022

I’m not sure about you, but I have one heck of a sweet tooth. It’s nearing dangerous levels. Earlier this week I opened a packet of Pascall’s Pineapple Lumps, to discover 4 hours later, the packet was empty. The culprit: me. I’d eaten the entire bag.

So, I went on the hunt to find a sweet recipe for snacks I can eat too much of, without feeling so overwhelmingly guilty, and sluggish. Enter: Oatmeal, cranberry and white chocolate chunk biscuits.

Serves a dozen or so.


  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of old fashioned oats, not quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 250g bag of cranberries
  • 2/3 cup of white chocolate chunks or chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Using an electric mixer beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs mixing well.
  3. Combine the oats flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl.  Add to the butter mixture.
  4. Stir in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks.
  5. Place rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking paper.
  6. Squash them down with the back of a fork.
  7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
  8. Resist eating the entire batch at once.
