Oatmeal White Chocolate Pudding Cookies

Pssst….I’m in a contest. For my Almond White Chocolate Magic Bars. If you’d like…you can vote for me…Thank you!

I love those eCard things that go around Facebook and Pinterest. Some of them are quite hilarious. Being that this is the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap reveal day, I found one that is fitting for my predicament lately:


Because, seriously. I ate 3 dozen cookies almost all by myself. In addition to all the other cookies I’ve been eating. And pie. My 6 month food baby now is due any day.

I was so excited to get all my cookies from the swap. I waited anxiously by the door each day for the postman. (Our mailbox is a group one down the street, but boxes get door-to-door service. Poor guy has been here a lot lately.)

I also know the most popular cookie flavor this year: peppermint. All three dozen were a variation on peppermint cookies. And, since that’s my favorite flavor, I was excited. I received cookies from The Sweets Life, Greens and Chocolate, and A Clove of Garlic, a Pinch of Salt. You MUST go check them out. SOOO good people. SO. Delish. And, I got new blogs to read! Woot!

Another of my predicaments lately? What flavors of cookie NOT to turn into a pudding cookie. Man, I could do it all day every day and be a happy girl! I used my oatmeal cookie recipe and added white chocolate pudding to the mix. Makes them SO moist! And, for prettiness sake, I added swirled chocolate chips to the batter (and a few on top, for looks).

If you like oatmeal cookies, you’ll love oatmeal PUDDING cookies. I promise!

Make them, so you can eat a dozen (or 3) like me. Then I won’t be the only one listening to myself chew!

Oatmeal White Chocolate Pudding Cookies {#fbcookieswap}


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 package white chocolate instant pudding (small box)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups oats (quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup swirled chocolate chips (or your favorite flavor white or chocolate), plus more for the top, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add pudding and mix until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the oats and chips.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheets. I like to use a 2 tablespoon sized ice cream scoop for this so the cookies will all be the same size. I pressed 2-3 chips on the top of the cookies, for presentation. This is optional!
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool five minutes and then remove from pan to cool completely.

    6 month food baby. OMG that’s hilarious, I just snorted so loud that I’m getting weird looks.

    I love the fact that these have oats, pudding and brown sugar in. They must be so incredibly chewy yet moist and the spices alone make me want to squeal in delight. I’m so glad I read blogs at home. Can you imagine what people must think of me if I read in public? I’d be sanctioned by now, for reals!

    Love how you added oatmeal to pudding cookies! Oatmeal cookies are my favorite, so I can only imagine how quickly I would devour these! :)


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      I’m glad I had to mail them. Otherwise I would have eaten them all!

    These look SO good! I just saved them to my Zip List box (and that’s how you KNOW I’m really planning on making them 😉 Oh– and pinned too, of course 😀


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 6:11 pm

      Well, I hope you like them! I need to do that more… :)

    Thank you SO SO much for sending these to me, they were DELICIOUS! In fact, I couldn’t wait for you to post the recipe so that I could make them myself again soon! Thanks!! xoxo


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      I’m glad you liked them Kelly! I was a little worried…not at all skinny, lol!

    LOL that ecard is hilarious, I can totally relate 😀 I would eat all of these cookies myself too!! Yum :)

    It WAS a pepperminty year, wasn’t it? I got the cookies from The Sweets Life and Green N Chocolate, so I was super pepperminted as well, not that I would EVER complain about that 😉 Glad you enjoyed the cookies, and yours look amazing as well!


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      Thanks Tiffany! SOOOO good. So funny we had two of the same peeps!

    i love those swirled chips Dorothy! I’ve seen them once or twice but have never bought them for a recipe. And oatmeal cookies are my favorite kind of cookie. :) The pudding addition is wonderful – white chocolate flavor is one of my very favorites. :)


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 6:08 pm

      Thanks Sally! I picked them up on a whim one day, they look so pretty. :)

    Thank you for the cookies! These were delicious!

      I’m glad you liked them!

    Oh I wish you had my name, these look delicious. It’s funny how the pudding mix makes cookies so good, I just made some recently as well.

    I love your packaging as well., so cute.


  15. Taylor @ greens & chocolate posted on December 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm (#)

    These sound SO good!! We were on the same page with the pudding cookies apparently :)


  16. Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl posted on December 12, 2012 at 7:35 pm (#)

    I love all flavors of cookies, but a good oatmeal cookie always tops my list. These look soooo good. And I hear you on the food baby–I’d successfully lost quite a bit of weight–then started my blog. Things have been downhill ever since. I have to sample the product, for quality-control, right??


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 12th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

      Totally. Wouldn’t want to kill anyone! LOL


  17. Back For Seconds posted on December 12, 2012 at 8:52 pm (#)

    Dorothy, these look so yummy! I love the swirly chips too :) Oh, and I eat a dozen cookies or so on a daily basis. Is that not normal?!


  18. Elaine @ Cooking to Perfection posted on December 13, 2012 at 6:00 am (#)

    The swirl chips make these cookies so pretty! And is it weird that I’ve never seen white chocolate pudding mix? I swear, my grocery store hates me. STILL looking for gingerbread Oreos (there isn’t a Walmart near me and I’m hoping somewhere/ANYWHERE else decides to carry them). Let’s hope I don’t have as much trouble finding white chocolate pudding mix, because that sounds delish!


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 13th, 2012 at 7:32 pm

      Really????? Um, your store is weird. LOL


  19. Ace posted on December 13, 2012 at 7:15 pm (#)

    Thank you so so much for the cookies. They were the first I received and I was so excited! The BF waited patiently for me to get home before we tore open the box and devoured half. :) And you extra little surprise (was that matzoh toffee??) was delicious as well. Definitely did not last long in this house. So excited to read more of your blog!

    I was shopping for the ingredients for this, and the only White Chocolate Instant Pudding I could find was the “Fat Free” one, the sugar free one, would that work too??


    • Tracy S replied on December 14th, 2012 at 7:22 am

      the box I have is a 32g (4 serving). I’m from Canada! :)

    I am also obsessed with pudding cookies and regularly use Chef In Training’s pudding cookies as the basis for my flavor experiments. I had been wondering about an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe and I stumbled on this. I made mine with Old Fashion Oats and lots of milk chocolate and white chocolate chips. My husband and daughter LOVE them! Thanks!

      Thanks Amanda!! I’m glad you liked them!

    Made the dough for these yesterday, but cut back on the sugars a tiny bit. Also, I used old fashioned oats, since I prefer their heartiness to that of quick cook. I chilled the dough 2hrs, then baked hall the dough. They turned out great! I baked another dozen tonight; my husband is spoiled and likes his cookies warm from the oven…what can I say? I was afraid that the remaining dough might be dry, since oatmeal will draw moisture, but that was not the case. These were just as moist and chewy tonight as they were last night. This recipe has replaced my favorite one from Quaker!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2014 at 2:27 pm

      That’s why I love the pudding – it makes them so soft no matter what! I’m so glad you liked them, and that they work with old fashioned oats. I go back and forth between using those and instant, but I prefer those!

    Now these look good! I  havent tried the white chocolate pudding flavor. But I have had the coconut cream pudding flavor (which contains tiny bits of coconut inside the mix-smells great) with sweetened coconut and white chocolate chips and the flavor combo is the bomb. So Im gona try it in this recipe with the oatmeal. Thank you!
