Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine cake mix, oats, oil, eggs and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir in 1 cup white chocolate chips, cranberries and walnuts, if desired. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.
Bake 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
