“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.”

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!

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 for you, and makes the cookies moist and rich. 2) Use wheat flour. No reason to use white flour (which is as bad - or worse - for you as sugar is). With oatmeal cookies, you won't be able to tell a difference. Well, only slightly. ;) 3) Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Which brings up another point: use unsalted butter. :) 4)Toast your nuts before-hand. I toast mine in a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes. That will bring out all of the nut's crunchiness and nuttiness and flavor. I used pecans. You can use any kind of nut you want! 5) Roughly chop the pecans and cranberries before adding them to the batter. I love the addition of the carrots! That is pure ingeniousness. 6) My cookies needed much longer to cook. 7) A neat addition to these cookies is peanut butter. That's up to you. Thanks for sharing this recipe, "MakeItHealthy"!
