10 min
about 2 1/2 dozen


2 1/4 cups (560 ml) all-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1 cup (250 ml) butter, softened but not melted
1 cup (250 ml) packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup (75 ml) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (60 ml) vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) chopped semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips


  1. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat together butter, brown and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes or until very creamy and smooth. Beat in yogurt and vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir to combine. Add chocolate and stir to distribute evenly.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Using a heaping tbsp (15 mL) or small ice cream scoop, drop batter onto prepared pan leaving about 2 inches (5 cm) between each cookie. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until just set and light golden around edges. Let cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter.
