I like cookies. I like cookies a lot.
I don’t bake cookies a lot…’cause I’d eat them a lot.
My sister sent me a recipe a few weeks ago. Cookies that she has created.
Wait for it…
You heard it here first, folks.
Get out a couple of your mixing bowls. And make sure one of them is big, there’s a lot of healthy ingredients in this cookie! Now, lets do this thing!

In your first mixing bowl, combine all of these dry ingredients:
- 2 1/2 cup wheat flour (un-bleached)
- 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In your second mixing bowl, combine these together and stir together very well:
- 1 stick real butter, unsalted and melted
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Make sure the mixture is very well stirred, then add:
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup walnuts or nut of your choice, finely chopped
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup green zucchini, grated
- 1 cup yellow zucchini, grated
- 1 cup carrots, grated
Mix together very well.
Slowly add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the ingredients in the second bowl, about a cup at a time. Mix thoroughly before adding next cup, until all the dry ingredients are incorporated.
Place rounded by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake on lightly sprayed cookie sheets at 375°F for 10-12 minutes.
This recipe is adaptable, you can exchange ingredients. For example, chocolate chips can be changed to cherry chips or the nuts can be almonds.
*WARNING* Once you start eating these, you will find it difficult to quit cold-turkey. I highly suggest a double batch, to combat those cravings.
