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.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup yogurt (non-fat, plain)
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour (all-purpose)
1 cup flour (whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips (miniature)
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
