"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."

  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.

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.

Very soft and yummy! Even the kids loved them. I substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce for 1/2 of the butter and raisins for the cranberries. Will make them again, thank you!

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.

Delicious!

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.
