These White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are soft and delicious! They are full of warm, homey flavors, like cinnamon, and they have the most fabulously chewy texture.

Meet one of my new favorite cookies: the white chocolate, cinnamon, oatmeal cookie of your DREAMS. To be honest, I thought that this cookie would turn out pretty standard and simple tasting. You know, oatmeal cookie with some cinnamon and a bit of white chocolate – nothing revolutionary here. BUT. Somehow, the way the dark brown sugar caramelized as it bakes, combined with a healthy dose of cinnamon and that sweet white chocolate created something AWESOME.

These cookies taste like a chewy, oatmeal cinnamon roll. Not exactly like a cinnamon roll, of course, because the texture is so different, but the taste is definitely there.

These chewy oatmeal cookies are chewy in the best way with a tiny bit of crunch around the edges. They’re soft, sweet, nostalgic, easy, and so delicious. It’s safe to say that I’m obsessed and will absolutely be making these often. While they’re amazing cool, my favorite way to enjoy these is 5 minutes out of the oven. The edges are still crunchy, and the inside is still gooey and chewy, and the white chocolate is melty and perfect. It is cookie perfection.

Tips for the best white chocolate oatmeal cookies

  • The dark brown sugar definitely helps the overall cookie flavor and texture immensely, although light brown sugar will work in a pinch
  • I love how chewy the old-fashioned oats are, so make sure you use those as opposed to quick-cooking oats, which are thinner and much less textured
  • Use high quality white chocolate, instead of the white chocolate chips
