Today I’m joining with 11 of my gluten-free blogging friends to share a dozen gluten-free Christmas cookie recipes! My gluten-free oatmeal cranberry chocolate chip cookies are a fun addition to any cookie exchanges or neighbor plates you’re making.
Definitely a favorite cookie of mine, I had to stop partway through typing up this post just to go make another batch of these gluten-free oatmeal cranberry cookies because I was craving them so badly! I’ve been making these gluten-free oatmeal cranberry chocolate chip cookies for many years.
While they’re yummy year-round, I mostly make them during the holiday season. They look pretty on cookie platters or in gift boxes that I give for neighbor gifts. I’m making them for a holiday potluck too!
Notes on ingredients for these gluten-free oatmeal cranberry chocolate cookies:
- Certified gluten-free oats – Be sure to use oats that are certified gluten-free. I recommend avoiding any that aren’t certified, even if they are labeled gluten-free. My go to is GF Harvest old fashioned rolled oats or GF Harvest organic old fashioned rolled oats.
- Gluten-free flour blend – like most of my recipes, this recipe has been tested with both of my favorite flour blends: gfJules gluten-free all-purpose flour and Gluten-free Mama almond flour blend. You can buy gfJules directly here or on Amazon here. You can buy Gluten-free Mama on Amazon here. I’m sure other high quality flour blends would work in this as well. My advice is to just avoid ones with bean flours, only rice flour, or with coconut flour.
- Dried cranberries: I also really like to buy my dried cranberries from nuts.com. They’re stored/packaged in a certified gluten-free facility and these juice-infused ones are so much more moist and flavorful. They’re my go-to when I have them on hand. You can also use Ocean Spray Craisins – available at just about every store. They’re gluten statement is here, in case you’re interested!
- White Chocolate: You can use chips or chunks here. I used Guittard vanilla milk baking chips. They’re available on Amazon here. I buy them instead at my local Winco stores, at World Market, and sometimes see them at other local stores. The Guittard chips are made in a gluten-free, peanut-free facility. I also sometimes buy Baker’s white chocolate bars and just chop into chunks. I find these at every local store in my area.
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate: In addition to the white chocolate chips, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips too. You could opt for milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips or chunks too!
Please note that this makes a large batch of gluten-free oatmeal cookies: about 4 dozen good sized cookies. I do not recommend doubling these as it will be difficult to mix.
Instead of doubling, while these are in the oven, you can make any of the other cookies from my blogging friends that are listed here in our Virtual Gluten-free Cookie Exchange.

Gluten-free Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
This dough can dry out, so it is best to bake the cookies the same day. I also do not recommend doubling as it will likely be too difficult for your mixer or to mix by hand. Recipe tested with gfJules and Gluten-free Mama flour blends. Recommend either! *omit xanthan if your gluten-free flour blend already contains xanthan or guar gum As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
