Are you looking for a healthier cookie recipe that has a little more nutritional value than the “cookie cutter” cookies? Then Chocolate Chip Yogurt Cookies are for you!

This recipe contains yogurt to add extra protein, calcium, and moisture. Replacing part of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour increases nutrients such as fiber, B vitamins, Vitamin E, healthy fats, and several minerals.

Happy baking!

  1. Alice, could a person substitute stevia for part of the sugar ( not the brown) and/or use gluten free flour??? I saw almond flour recently and wondered about it.
    P.S. Are you coming to the Open Harvest /Old Cheney Road CSA Fair this Saturday?

  2. Hi Bertine – I think your best bet would be to check the package of the almond flour and see if it had any suggestions for substituting it for other flour. This page of Cook’s Thesaurus gives some thoughts about this: http://www.foodsubs.com/Nutmeals.html — Here is some information about substituting stevia for sugar: http://truvia.com/recipes/conversion_chart

  3. Bertine — I am not sure if I am coming to the CSA Fair … I have two other commitments on Saturday and it depends on how fast they get done.
