Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies


Greek Yogurt cookies


I know I’ve discussed

{or maybe complained about}

my post 40 weight.

Things simply are not in the same place they were a few years ago,

{hello gravity not my friend}

and I am not the least bit pleased.

But dieting,

forget about it.

NOT going to happen.

As soon as I even think about it,

all I want is a cookie.

A melty,


hot from the oven,

chocolate chip cookie.

What’s a girl to do…

make a cookie that is nearly guilt free,

replacing ALL of the butter with Greek style yogurt.

Sure, they are more cake like than your typical cookie,

but they were still delicious.

Cookie craving cured, and I didn’t completely ruin all the “healthy” eating that I have been doing.

{they even passed the picky eater test}

    I’ve been using Greek yogurt in place of butter for a couple of years now and I love it! I actually prefer a cakier cookie so they are just to my taste. I may need to go bake some of my own after seeing your amazing pictures! Good work!

  2. Jessica says

    What kind of greek yogurt did you use? Plain or vanilla flavored? I only have vanilla on hand and really want cookies!!!

    I just made these today and they are amazing!! I used Greek with honey on the bottom because that’s what i had. They even turned out a little chewy which i love so these are definitely in my permanent recipe box now. Thank you!

    These are SO good! Thank you for the great recipe. I am on wedding diet mode and have been looking for a tasty sweet treat to satisfy my sweet tooth. I substituted with whole wheat flour and they were perfect!

    Thanks for this recipe! I just found your blog by Googling “chocolate chip cookies with greek yogurt”. Every other recipe I found on the web used quite a bit of butter with a little greek yogurt. These looked pretty good with all yogurt, so I tried them! They’re still cooling but are definitely more cake-like than “cookie”, but they still satisfy a cookie craving. They actually remind me of chocolate chip muffin tops! I’ll have to experiment more with baking with greek yogurt… and I’m going to check out your other recipes!

    Jut finished making these! They turned out so light and fluffy :)
    It was my first time baking with Greek yogurt as an alternative and I was so impressed. Thanks for the recipe!

    I just made a batch tonight, and they are a hit!! I usually use the Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookie recipe (w flax seed egg, per my son’s food allergies), but found this, while looking for a breakfast cookie recipe. I’m calling it a breakfast cookie bc of the Greek yogurt. LOL! I’m a batter girl, and this batter is quite delicious. This would be great to try, with truvía, which I’ve never used for baking. Thank you for this delicious, low-fat recipe!!

    Thank you for posting these cookies!! I tried them as written and though they were good I prefer my cookies a little more moist. However, I made them again and used 2 cups white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and they were just prefect. Definitely doing that again…and again.

    This recipe didn’t work at all!! My dough was VERY thick and tough when I mixed it. I know that I didn’t miss an ingredient nor measured it wrong. I did everything exactly what the instruction said, but instead I made mini chocolate chip bread. What happened?!?!?!?!?!

    I like the idea of these cookies, but according to the magic nutrition calculator you linked above and myfitness pal app, each cookie is about 437 calories, 11g fat and nearly 50g sugar! Either I am calculating this wrong or these cookies are not really healthy!

    • says

      the recipe made more than 12 cookies, so the info in the my recipe magic calculations in not correct – and I don;t refer to them as a healty food, only stating that they are a much healthier alternative to a chocolate chip cookie
