“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.”

Original recipe yields 3 1/2 dozen

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, yogurt, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla extract. Mix in flour and baking soda until just incorporated. Fold in quick oats, walnuts, chocolate chips, carrots, and cranberries. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

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 down before baking. I just tasted one from the first pan and I think they are a little bland even considering all the flavors that are in them. I think the recipe would benefit from a little salt (I did use unsalted butter as I do for all baking). DH, who I really made them for, didn't like them either and has taken them to work (those folks will eat anything!). Sorry but I won't be making these again.
