Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt - add 1 tbsp nut butter, 1 tbsp sweetener, 1 tbsp mini chips, and 1/8 tsp vanilla to Greek yogurt. SO GOOD! Follow Me on Pinterest

 

I wanted to share what I’ve been making lately that makes me so happy. I love peanut butter and chocolate chips together. Usually, I just eat peanut butter out of the jar with chocolate chips sprinkled on top. This can be dangerous, to my waistline that is!  I thought of a New Years Resolution minded way to enjoy my sinful indulgence with less guilt; mix those two ingredients with something that is healthy and filling – Greek yogurt! This totally does it for me. I eat way less peanut butter when I make it like this and my kids love it! Oh my goodness it’s so good!

    • Thanks Karen for stopping by and your recommendation. Although, I don’t eat PB2 because peanut butter without fat is not a whole food and does not satisfy me. Being satisfied is more important then counting calories and eating low carb/low fat diet.

      • I tried this with vanilla greek yogurt (the Dannon kind, to be exact) and the vanilla already in the yogurt was too tangy with the peanut butter. I think plain would be better so you can taste the peanut butter more, but that’s just my taste!

  1. Now I really want to try this. But without the peanut butter. Because while I love peanut butter (only JIF and Skippy though, unfortunately, since they are super processed) I hate peanut butter in things. Mostly I just want an excuse to eat chocolate chips LOL

    • Hi Rachel, if you don’t want to use peanut butter try using sunflower butter from TJ’s or a fresh almond butter.TJ’s almond butter doesn’t taste fresh though. I know what you mean about the PB. The added plam oil helps the shelf life and thats why it may have a better taste. You could try making it fresh and see what you think.

  4. I just made this and it is awesome! It is totally feeding my cookie dough craving! I didn’t have any chocolate chips but I did have cocoa powder and it is delicious! And cocoa powder doesn’t have any sugar! Bonus!

  6. i get dissappointed reading reviews that tell the person how wonderful their photos and ideas are but saying nothing about whether a recipe was tried and the thoughts on that recipe, so here goes!, I tried (am trying) it and its very satisfying. I was skeptical but it is. I only did half of it and used 0% fage, almond butter and the rest stayed the same. So thank you for the idea for the treat!

  7. Wow – just saw this on Six Sisters and it totally caught my eye. If only I had some plain greek yogurt right now, I would totally get up and make this!

  9. Found this on pinterest and made it tonight. Fantastic! I used natural peanut butter from Earthfare and honey with small chocolate chips and the 2% fage. I even dipped some apples in it. Very satisfying. Thanks so much!

  10. Hi! I normally don’t comment on things, but this deserved a HUGE thank you! I love yogurt and so does my family. This variation was bowl-licking-worthy for my four year old AND two year old (and myself). We all just kept saying, MMMMMM-MMMMMMM! This could easily satisfy any sweet tooth! Thanks for sharing this!

  11. Saw this on pinterest today, and I decided to make it. I think this was the most delicious Greek yogurt I have ever made in my life. Oh my gosh!

    Somebody was wondering about calories. Here’s the breakdown:

    1 TBSP peanut butter – 94 cal.
    1 TBSP honey – 64 cal.
    1 TBSP mini chocolate chips – 70 cal.
    TOTAL – 368 cal.

  14. So delicious! I added cocoa powder, frozen banana chunks, and dry cereal to add some texture! Awesome breakfast or snack idea!

  17. Holy Cow such a great idea! Also i just did it…. SO good! i am always looking for new healthy ways to get my Cookie Dough Fix, with out the gorging myself on it!!! Thank you!!!

  18. I just came across this cookie dough greek yogurt recipe on pinterest and gave it a try- amazing!! I also added a teaspoon of brown sugar to give it extra cookie taste- yup!

  19. thanks for this great idea! i doubled the pb and omitted the salt. Also, it’s good to have with a banana, baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. The banana gets all caramelized and soft and much sweeter.

  20. Hmmmm does it really taste like cookie dough or just look like it? I need to know what to expect or else I’ll be disappointed! And I don’t wanna waste a Greek yogurt :D

  21. What a cool idea! I practically live off of Fage 2% greek yogurt, so I will definitely have to try this! Just found your blog through Whole New Mom and am so happy I did! :)

    • Hi Lauren! So happy you found my blog. I found yours after you posted pumpkin fudge. :) I can’t wait to try your soaked oatmeal pancakes!

  27. That sounds delicious and I can’t wait to try it! Though the sugar levels in Greek yogurt are pretty high so maybe grab a yogurt that is honey flavored!

  28. This recipe looks delish. Lately, I’ve been making my own chocolate yogurt with Greek yogurt. I just add cocoa, organic sugar and milk. It’s my own little bowl of chocolate bliss.

  29. I’m eating this as I type.. Unfortunately this prevents me from shoveling fast enough. Perfect recipe! I looooooooooooove it! :) I’m definitely planning on taking it for my afternoon snack at school. Thanks for sharing :)

  31. Thank you, thank you, thank you! From the bottom of my heart! My husband and I are trying the insanity workout and are on a strict diet and this recipe completely satisfied my sweet tooth! I did alter the recipe a bit because I used what I had on hand, which was Chobani fat free Greek yogurt, and Marathon almond butter creamy, was out of vanilla and did not use honey, but added about 16 Ghiradelli milk Choc chips because the fat was less in them than the 60%cocoa ….thank you for sharing this recipe and making my day, I never would have thought yogurt could be such a delicious dessert!

  33. I decided to treat myself and made this for breakfast this morning, on my it’s delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe :)

  34. I made this tonight and it was probably the most amazing dessert I’ve eaten in ages! Can’t get enough of it! I made it with the Trader Joe’s cookie butter (didn’t have the time/ingredients to make your version but I’m definitely going to try sometime soon) and it was just killer!

  37. How many ounces is the small container? I have a large tub… not sure how to convert measurements without knowing the oz of the yogurt…

  39. I was not a fan – the yogurt taste came in too strong, and it tasted just like a peanut butter yogurt. I’m not a huge fan of how yogurt tastes (though I do enjoy Chobani flavors) – I made it with honey and ample peanut butter (one tablespoon was not enough).

    This would be good for someone who likes yogurt a lot and only likes cookie dough a little – it’s not bad, but did not reach the expectations I had of it.

  40. This “Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt” is my new favorite healthy “guilty pleasure”. SOOOOOOOO good, full of protein, and not horrible on the calories! My boyfriend did alter the recipe a little bit – Didn’t add quite as much honey – But it’s FANTASTIC.

  42. It took me a long time to find the original source for this amazing picture and idea I saw on my Pinterest feed. I CANNOT wait to try this! I always have Chobani in my fridge and other ingredients on hand – YUM! A great alternative to sweets for my boys too! Beautiful photography by the way! Looking forward to browsing your other recipes!

  43. Wow, are you serious? Fage is sweet enough on its own, you’re defeating the point of greek yogurt all together. If you’re adding chocolate chips, those are also sweet! I don’t know why you would have to add even MORE sugar to it, chocolate is already bad enough for you. This is really grossing me out right now, and what’s more offputting is that you’re trying to pass it off as healthy or something. Greek yogurt is a treat in its self to be enjoyed in moderation, not to be bastardized with sugar on top of sugar on top fat. How are you fit to run a blog?

    • Is this spam? Sounds pretty funny, had to respond. Plain fage is not sweet nor is it sweetened. Adding a tbsp. of honey with a tbsp. of chocolate will still make this a lower sugar treat vs. eating regular sweetened yogurt or ice cream + you’ll get twice or triple the protein.

  44. This looks very gluttonous and satisfying. Just a little remark. This is NOT greek yogurt. This is just strained cow milk yogurt. Greek yogurt is made of sheep or goat milk, it is sour and has a fatty membrane on the surface.

  45. Another winner recipe! I was craving chocolate chip cookies last night, and then I remembered that this recipe was on my pinterest board. I decided to give it a try, and Oh My Goodness! It is soooo good! Will definitely be a “go to” recipe when that chocolate chip cookie sweet tooth hits. (This crazy pregnancy has me craving sweets like none other!)

  46. I’m making them all: cookie dough greek yogurt, frozen peanut butter bites and cookie dough butter! Though “portion control” will have to be my mantra. ;-)

  47. I have to admit – I was skeptical that you could make Greek yogurt actually taste good and tolerable. I actually enjoy this and it’s an awesome way, being vegetarian, for me to get protein!

  48. This is so great & tasty! Exactly the dessert I’ve been looking for! I’ve put raisins in though instead of choco chips and it’s super yummy, too. Amazing recipe, thank you very much! ;)
