Blueberry, Caramel and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies

In the mood for cookies today?  I am :)  Let me introduce you to my latest cookie with dried blueberries, caramel bits, white chocolate and oatmeal.  I am thrilled with how these came out over the weekend.  I had a house full of kids running around Saturday and tried these out on them.  Needless to say, the cookies were a huge hit.  Had to shoo them all out of the kitchen so I could snap some photos before they devoured them all :)

I found these cute little Kraft caramel bits at Target, hope you guys can find them.  They are so handy and so great in baking.  Can’t wait to try them in brownies next.  I love how after the cookies cool, the outside bits of caramel get a little crunchy.  Yum, wait until you try these.  Break out your muffin top pans again folks, it’s time to make some cookies!

Basic line up of ingredients

Mmmm, caramel and blueberries :)

Hard to see, but there are white chocolate chunks in the back of the bowl, love white chocolate in Oatmeal Cookies!

You know a cookie will be good if you can’t stop eating the dough right?  Well, I definitely couldn’t stop eating this!  Y’all have your muffin top pans yet?  Not sure how I lived without it!

There’s that crunchy bit of caramel on the edge, LOVE it :)

Blueberry, Caramel and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

3/4 Cup granulated sugar

1 Cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 Tablespoons pure vanilla

2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 Cups oatmeal, I used quick oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 Cups Caramel Bits, by Kraft

1 1/2 Cups dried blueberries, found mine at Costco

1 Cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2.  Place flour, oatmeal, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix to combine.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with the caramel bits, blueberries and white chocolate.  Mix until just combined.

3.  If using a muffin top pan, spray with cooking spray, scoop about 1/4 Cup dough into each muffin top pan cup, then press to about 1/2 inch thick.  Bake for 11-14 minutes or until edges are just golden brown.  If using a normal baking sheet.  Use a medium cookie scoop and scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are just turning golden brown.  Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

24 Large Muffin Top Pan Cookies or 4 dozen normal size cookies

    Yummy looking cookies! Those caramel bits are cool, but they look like garbanzo beans, don’t they ;)?

  3. 3

    Those look amazing!! I’ve been hunting for those little caramels but I can’t seem to find them lately. I’ll just cut up regular caramels if I have to because I’m definitely trying these yummy cookies!

    My husband and I have an obsession with dried blueberries… as in we can’t stop eating them! These sound amazing.

    christine says:

    AMAZING! I had all the ingredients except for the caramel. I had to run to target anyway so I picked them up.

    I baked 1/4 in the muffin top tin (thx for the tip I haven’t used it in years and I LOVE the results) 1/4 on a slipmat and the remaining 1/2 went in the freezer so I can get a quick cookie fix as needed.

    These are really winners. I have been baking a lot of cookies lately and these are by far my favorite of the summer.

    These sound great!!! I love love love the muffin top pan for cookies. I found a whoopie pie pan that works great too, slightly different shape. Made brownies this weekend with the caramel bits and white chocolate chips, super yummy.

  31. 31

    LOVE these! I haven’t yet used dried blueberries in baking and just had a ::smacks forehead:: doh! moment. Love the combo of the blueberries, caramel and white chocolate. Sounds so delicious!

  32. 32

    You’ve done it again! I just drooled on the keyboard. These look seriously good.

  33. 33

    wow, they look amazing! ha, the caramels do look like chickpeas, but I think I could get over that. I’ve never seen them around here, but I”m going to look for them

  34. 34

    Could any more greatness be packed into these cookies!! I love that you put the dried blueberries in these. A nice, unexpected twist. LOVE the photos of you & your adorable family at the Angel’s game :) xxoo

    I’ve been eyeing all your muffin top cookies for a while now, and I think this one just sent me over the edge. Time to go dig around for my muffin top pan! Oh, and it looks like I’ll be making a trip to target today too. Thanks for the heads up!

    ingrid says:

    Hi, I do have that pan…two in fact and all because of your fabulous creations with it. BUT the one time I used it my brownies kinda stuck. They were a chore to get out and not all of them made it safely. :) I generously sprayed the pan with Pam; soooooo have you had this issue before? Any suggestions? Should I let whatever I’ve baked in it cool completely before removing? Help?!

    Thanks in advance!

    Kim says:

    Wow, those look amazing. Now I know what to do with those dried blueberries I bought awhile back… they were not very good in muffins in my opinion. I will have to look for those yummy looking caramel bits… they look super good!

  40. 40

    Those cookies look absolutely delicious! Never would of thought to combine caramel and blueberry..clever! :)

    Sharlene says:

    I’m loving the caramel bits! I haven’t seen them around but next time I go to Target I’ll keep my eyes peeled. This is such a unique flavor combination. I hope I find the bits so I can try it out soon!

    Tiffany Cook says:

    So funny!! I was so excited to see what new posts you had up, and low and behold..there you are with your family at the Angels game–the exact same place that we were last Friday night!! What are the odds, right? It’s probably a good thing we didn’t see you, or I more than likely would’ve embarrassed myself by jumping up and down; wanting an autograph or something. :) I’m a big fan of your blog! P.S. These cookies look amazing!

      No way!! Wish we could have met, I would have been embarrassed because I was eating all night! We had fun, maybe we’ll bump into each other at another game :)

    What a delicious cookie creation! I’ll have to keep an eye out for these caramel bits. It looks as though you were having a great time at the Angels game.

    I made these cookies today and they were YUMMY! I don’t have a muffin top pan, so I just used regular cookie sheets. I found that it made about 6 dozen cookies with the PC scoop that I use. Next time, I’ll definitely use parchment paper. The caramel bits melted to my sheets and made it a bit difficult to get them off the sheets. Everyone that I’ve shared the cookies with has LOVED them!

    Tried them with dried cranberries & they are delicious!!

    Claire says:

    Made these tonight (regular sized) and they were delicious. The blueberries and white chocolate is a perfect combo. I didn’t have the caramel bits so thought about doing browned butter but forgot. Nuts would be a yummy addition, too. Thanks for the recipe!

    This is the first recipe I’ve made from your website. They were wonderful! What a great combination of flavors. I especially loved the little caramel bits. I didn’t even know they existed until now. Yum!
