Here is another one of those chocolate chip cookie recipes but this one is a more unique name than just the plain ole chocolate chip cookie, right? Essentially, this cookie is a chocolate chipper but varies in one way, yogurt. I am a huge fan of yogurt, particularly plain yogurt, because I can dress it up any way that I want and it is something that I always have on hand. This is different from chocolate chip cookies recipe in the fact that the yogurt makes the cookies have a cake-like texture. It still tastes like a cookie but it has a different texture. I like this recipe because if you are in a chocolate chip cookie rut, this will get you out of it!
Most of the sweetness come from the chocolate chips which is good because it doesn't feel like I'm shoving sugar in my mouth. The incorporation of oatmeal and yogurt may make these cookies healthier than most cookies but I would not put them in my "healthy" cookie file. At least they make me feel healthy and sometimes it is alright to tell yourself a white lie...well, at least for homemade cookies!
