Oatmeal White Chocolate Pudding Cookies are such a fun cookie! Instant pudding mix is added into the oatmeal cookie dough creating a super soft and chewy cookie filled with white chocolate!

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 are such a fun cookie! Instant pudding mix is added into the oatmeal cookie dough creating a super soft and chewy cookie filled with white chocolate!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 36 cookies
Serving Size 1 cookie


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 box about 3.4-3.9 ounces INSTANT white chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips any kind; I used swirled


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool five minutes and then remove from pan to cool completely.

  1. tried the White Chocolate Oatmeal Pudding Cookies. The recipe calls for cinnamon but it is not on the list of ingredients. I added 1/2 tsp but you can not taste it at all. What is the correct amount?
    Pete g.

  2. I’m so excited to try the apple toffee pudding cookie recipe. got apples from a friend, and the grandkids love cookies! So thank you for your cookie recipes. will be awesome for the Holidays..

  3. I just cleaned up after making and sampling the cookies. I didn’t have any choc. chips of any kind so I used caramel bits. french vanilla pudding and old fashioned oats. They turned out great. Oh’ and the 1 tsp of cinnamon was just right.

  4. I don’t see cinnamon in the ingredient list for your oatmeal pudding cookies
    but instructions include cinnamon ?? Oh well I;m going to try them anyway with maybe 1 tsp. of it. I’ll let you know how they turn out.

  5. Please fix this site!! The ingredients aren’t showing up and these are my husband’s FAVORITE cookies and his birthday is tomorrow and these are the only thing he has asked for!!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

    1. 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!
