"Carrots are not normally found in cookies, but they act as a great natural sweetener while adding moisture. I also replaced half the chocolate chips with dried cranberries. These cookies are tasty and a good source of fiber."

I'm so glad for these people that are health conscious! I changed a lot with this recipe, and I'm giving it 5 stars based on what I did with it. So here goes. 1) Use Greek yogurt. Much better fo...

pretty good, but a little too chewy, yet somehow dry. seemed like it needed more flour. Will try again and probably tweek some more...Will update review/notes when I do that.

These cookies are great! My husband is always asking me to make "healthy" cookies, and he absolutely loved these! Great job!

Made as described except I used 4 oz of coconut Greek yogurt instead of plain as that is what I have on hand. The cookies did not spread out in the oven so after the first batch I pressed them ...

This cookie is amazing! I followed the changes suggested by Mary Elizabeth. I also added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and dark chocolate chips.

these were good, the only difference I made was instead of the yogurt I put applesauce just because I had some to use up. my 4 yr old daughter liked them and she's my harshest critic.


If you like chewy healthy cookies, you might like these. If you're using unsalted butter, I suggest you add a little salt. It's a little bland.
