Cookie Dough Greek Yoghurt

I’m surprised I’ve gotten through the past few months without having ever posted one of my favorite ever recipes. 

It’s perfect for those sweet cravings, especially cookie dough cravings. 

Sure, you could whip up a batch of raw (eggless) cookie dough, loaded with heavy ingredients like butter and sugar, and chow down… or….

you could whip up a batch of light and healthy-er cookie dough made with Greek yogurt! 

What the heck am I talking about, you ask?

Here’s a little something you may not know. 

When you combine Greek yogurt with a bit of peanut butter, a bit of maple syrup, a touch of vanilla, and some mini chocolate chips…

you end up with a bowl full of yumminess that tastes quite similar to cookie dough!

There are a couple of ways you could do this. 

The first way is as I mentioned above. 

The second way is the quickest – buy some vanilla Greek yogurt (Chobani can help you out with that one). 

Then all you need to add is peanut butter and chocolate chips.

But, if you’re in my situation, you may not be able to find vanilla Greek yogurt, or even Chobani yogurt. 

In that case, just buy some thick & creamy Greek yogurt and you’re good to go.

Or maybe this would even work with regular vanilla yogurt, or plain yogurt. 

I’ve never tried it in this recipe, but feel free to experiment.

So anyway, yes, I have been making cookie dough Greek yogurt for months; I simply cannot get enough of it. 

It’s my dessert of choice, and I can feel good about it because it’s not entirely bad for me. 

Definitely more nutritional than a brownie or slice of cake, that’s for sure!

But it does still have sugar and chocolate chips.  Just remember, everything in moderation.

I can’t track down the original author of this recipe as I’ve seen it on a number of blogs. 

I’m posting the link in my recipe below to where I first discovered it; The Suburban Girl Gone Country.

Some of my notes on the recipe… I usually use a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter. 

I use homemade peanut butter; it tastes better and mixes in better than commercially-prepared peanut butter as well. 

You can probably try using other nut butters, but it will result in a different taste, obviously. 

For the sweetener, I always use maple syrup.  I’ve tried other liquid sweeteners, but maple syrup gives the best flavor, in my opinion. 

I’ve never used sea salt in my version. 

Finally, I always use vanilla bean paste because it gives a better vanilla flavor.

Enough talk, let’s get on to the recipe so you can enjoy this simple dessert as well. 

You probably have most of the 6 ingredients on hand already!

  1. Yummmmmm! This looks and sounds incredible!

    I’ve tried similar mixes before, but without Choc chips and usually either maple syrup or vanilla rather than both.

    This was AMAXING! I made it and it was awesome, I used honey instead of maple syrup, and natural peanut butter. Yum! Just half the serving was very filling and satisfying, I’m saving the other half for tomorrow as breakfast! (:

  6. I just made this with almond butter instead of peanut, I quite like it. I’m not sure it’s like cookie dough, but it might be because I didn’t use chobani, I find chobani is less tangy than other Greek yoghurt. It’s nice all the same though 🙂

  8. Looks like a nice yogurt recipe to try out this weekend but I might have to substitute the peanut butter due to allergic reaction. Will come back and leave my thoughts from the weekend yogurt creation.
