Blueberry, Caramel and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

In the mood for cookies today? I am ๐Ÿ™‚  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    Love this recipe, used dried blueberries, yogurt chips instead of chocolate chips and i added my new found Davao chocolate nibs… then I realized i had only 6 pieces of caramel candies which I chopped up… The cookies were heavenly!!! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Courtney

    This sounds delicious but I was just looking and not reading everything carefully and though those caramel bits were chickpeas! Lol and I was so confused haha!

    I can’t say it enough how much I love your website! I am sticking exclusively here to make all my holiday goodies. This weekend I made Festive Candy Cane kiss centered brownie bites, Peanut butter cookie and cream cheese candy bars and today I made your Blueberry, Caramel and white chocolate oatmeal cookies. Everything has turned out so good! Thank you so much for all your recipes!

    Holy Cow I just finished making these cookies and they taste a zillion times better than I thought. My boyfriend is going to get home tonight and probably eat the whole batch! You are a very gifted cook and I can’t wait to try out some of your other recipies.
    Thank you for posting this!!

  5. I have made these twice in the past week and shared on my blog as well. YUM! Although I switched cherries for blueberries cause I have them on hand. Super delish and very popular with my neighbors ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Wow! I just haven’t met a cookie recipe of yours that I don’t love! I had a bunch of these caramel bits on hand from Fall and was happy to find a recipe for them. I did not have the dried blueberries so I used dried cherries and cranberries instead. So yummy.

  7. I was excited to find this recipe and after combing my local stores for the caramel bits I made a batch today.
    The dough is ridiculously thick. It even strained the motor of my kitchen aid! Since the dough is so thick, they’re not baking well at all.
    The only change I made is swapping cranberries for the blueberries so I can’t imagine that made a difference.

    Any ideas as to what the problem is? Am I missing an additional liquid somewhere?

    These look fantastic. I’m from Canada and have never seen those caramel bites. We do have SKOR pieces which are harder and more toffee-like but I’m wondering if those might be just as good? I’m going to try it this weekend.

  9. Linzie

    Oh my goodness can I just say these are my new favorite cookies!!! I made them for a play date and they were all gone by the end of the day. I sent some home with each child and every mother called me wanting the recipe. I sent them your way!
    Thanks again!!!!

    These are our new favorite cookies! (and you were SO right about the dough!) The only thing I would do differently next time is leave the caramel bits out. They added good flavor, but I had a hard time getting them out of the muffin top pan! Thanks for the recipe!!

  11. Jessica

    I made these (minus the blueberries only because of the price) last night, and they are SO SO SO good! I can’t wait to make another batch! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes.

  12. Melissa

    These are so good! I used the blueberry infused craisins and our whole family loved them. Thanks for another great cookie recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. This recipe is amazing! Definitely a recipe that will having people guessing at the secret ingredients! Still without a muffin top pan so I made these into little bite site cookies and they were a HIT! Thanks for all these incredible concoctions!

  14. Megan

    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!

  15. 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!

    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!

  17. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a big fan of your blog! P.S. These cookies look amazing!

    1. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. 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!

  19. 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!

  20. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

    1. Hi Ingrid,
      I would use oil to grease the pan for brownies then loosen the edges with a plastic knife when they come out of the oven and let them cool completely. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. 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!

  22. Sara

    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.

  23. Camille

    What an amazing combination! I just happen to have 2 bags of those caramel bits in my pantry waiting to be used. I can’t wait to make these! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. christine

    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.

  25. Whoa! Hello unique and delicious cookies ๐Ÿ™‚ These have been bookmarked and will be made the next time I’m in a cookie mood!

  26. Love the cookie creation. I have to find those caramel bits at Target. They would be perfect for all the fall and holiday baking coming up.

  27. I just love the creations you dream up in the kitchen! These look like another winner. I have a hard time finding the caramel bits, but I’m going to keep looking!

  28. Lauriela

    I am interested in making these cookies but I am unsure as to how much oatmeal to use. Also did you use quick oats?

  29. Amy

    You must be reading my mind…I was going to contact you about your muffin top pan, because I cannot find one in any local store. Thanks for the link!
    You’ve outdone yourself again – these look divine!

  30. 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!
