Loaded White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This cookie recipe has a lot going into the batter. First, it is an oatmeal cookie. It also uses white chocolate as a variation from traditional chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Finally, it has chopped pecans added–which can be changed to the nut of your choice.

Drop Cookies

This cookie batter is easy to make. You will need a mixer to beat the sugar and butter together. However, you do not chill the dough or even roll the cookies because these are drop cookies. You can also substitute semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips for white chocolate if you choose.

Use a Cookie Scoop for White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Make uniform cookies by using a cookie scoop. I used a 1 1/2-inch scooper. These cookies do not spread as much as some cookie recipes but need a little baking space. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, estimate the dough amount so that all the will be about the same size. You can also handroll the dough into balls.

Use a Trick to Make Round Cookies

Did you know you can fix misshapen cookies after they come out of the oven? Yes, there is a way to do this! Use an oversized round cookie cutter or a wide-mouth canning jar ring to spin the cookies while hot.

  1. First, remove the baked cookies from the oven.
  2. Place a round cookie cutter or canning ring over the cookie. (It must be larger than the cookie.)
  3. Quickly rotate the cookie cutter in a clockwise circle to spin the cookie several times.
  4. The cookie will bounce off the inside of the ring and become round.

Calories 120 kcal


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned uncooked oatmeal
  • (1) 11-ounce package white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place parchment paper or a silicone mat on a baking sheet.
  • Beat the butter with a mixer until creamy. Gradually add the sugars and beat until well mixed. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat just until the yolk is incorporated and disappears. Mix in the vanilla.
  • Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Then gradually add the mixture to the butter. Beat until blended.
  • Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, and pecans.
  • Use a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop and drop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little room between each cookie. These cookies do not spread a lot. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately tamp the tops with a fork. Place a round cookie cutter or wide-mouth jar lid (larger than the cookie) over a warm cookie. Move it in a fast circular pattern to spin the cookie inside it. This will create a round cookie. Repeat for all the hot cookies if you want them round.
  • Cool for 3-5 minutes on the baking sheet, and then move the cookies to a baking rack to finish cooling.
