These cake like yogurt cookies have a great soft texture, which you may not expect as there is no butter inside. This is the first time I’ve used greek yogurt in baking and I will be repeating this in the future. I use it in sweet treats like Easy Banana Split, which is another hit for health watchers or Strawberry Parfait but these are not even close to baking with this magical ingredient. Unlike buttery cookies, these ones are so light that you will want to eat more than one or two. Isn’t it great that you are eating cookies, yet feeling no guilty?

Yogurt cookies are not like those boring diet foods, so they will make a great change in your diet too. You need that break, don’t you? Then you can continue your diet knowing that you don’t put on much weight at all. The only thing you need to be careful is the number of cookies you eat. No problem as long as you know your limit.

The dough of these yogurt cookies is not a very thick one, so you need to use two tablespoons to drop them on the baking sheet. They don’t rise a lot, so you don’t need to leave a lot of space between them, 2 inches will be enough.

I love them when they are still warm as the chocolate chips inside is melting when you bite, but they are great when cold too. You can keep these in and airtight container up to a week.

    Can I make the cookies bigger? I notice the recipes says it makes 52 cookies, which means they are likely quite small. How would that effect baking time, etc?

    Or, alternatively, can I cut the recipe in half? Would they turn out? Baking is such a science!

    baking soda or baking powder? Your recipe says both – powder in “ingredients,” soda in “instructions”

    Does anyone know if this recipe will work using coconut milk yogurt instead of Greek? I’m dairy free and I’m always looking for great alternatives to everyone’s favorite treats!

    I tried this recipe to the T and was really excited about a healthy cookie! Unfortunately yogurt is not a substitute for butter…mine came out awful. I couldn’t eat them. Bummed because they look good on here…

      Hi Joy, sorry to hear that the recipe didn’t work for you. Did you use regular yogurt or Greek yogurt? What was the problem you had? The recipe calls for Greek yogurt because it is much thicker and has a butter like structure. I’ve made these several times and haven’t had any problems. These are soft cand cake like cookies.
