A couple years ago I learned a tip that has revolutionized how I make baked goods for my family.
I’ve been using Mountain High Yoghurt as a yoghurt substitution for higher fat ingredients and it has not only made my recipes healthier… but so much moister too! My yoghurt recipe for thick and chewy chocolate chip & peanut butter cookie bars is a family favorite of ours and I hope yours too!
These are so easy to make too!
I was able to make a whole pan of them from start to finish (me eating them) in less than an hour!
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 cups raw sugar
- 1 tsp agave
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup lowfat plain Mountain High Yoghurt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix all wet ingredients together.
- Slowly add all dry ingredients to the wet ingredients with the flour last.
- Add batter to a greased pan.
- Bake for 25+ minutes. I always start checking it at the 20 minute mark. It’s done when it’s golden brown on top.

What’s your favorite way to add more yoghurt to your diet?
Those sound so good. I can not wait to try those.
I know my family would be thrilled if I would make these for them. But, I think I will just send them the recipe and let them make them themselves.
These look delicious, Can’t wait to try them!
A fresh batch of those would be delicious right now. I’d love to make some of them with yoghurt!
Those sound amazing. I wish I had some here right now because I would love to try them.
These sound so good. Who doesn’t love peanut butter?
Yum! I’m not a yogurt fan so this would be the perfect way for me to add some to my diet. These look super tasty!
I bet my kids will love these!
Oh goodness, they look delicious! Love it when you can find healthier swap-ins without sacrificing taste. Will have to try this recipe soon!
These look so moist and yummy. I love the idea of using yogurt in recipes.
My CJ would LOVE these! I am going to make some for him tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Oh YUM! These look like chewy-gooey goodness! Excited to try this recipe!
Can you mail some to me? YUM!! These look awesome!! I am always trying to find ways to sub for the “bad” stuff, great substitution here! YUM
This looks so delicious. I will have to try making this recipe this weekend. I am sure it will be a big hit.
Those look so good. I love that they have both chocolate chips and peanut butter.
Mmm those do look good! My kids wouldn’t even realize that they were good for them in addition to being delicious.
Oh my gosh these look and sound amazing! I love to substitute yogurt into recipes when I bake its a great alternative!
That looks sinful…like too good to eat just one, but if you eat more than one, oh lordy!!! Yum! Like the yogurt substitute.
These do sound delicious! I have never seen this brand yogurt before and have never tried substituting yogurt for other ingredients. I tend to eat yogurt alone-or with fruit/flavoring. I do love my yogurt.
These sound absolutely amazing! Yum!
I like using yogurt in baking because it adds so much moisture. This looks fantastic!
I have used Greek yogurt in cookie recipes in the past. They turned out really good.
These look incredible and I love that they are chewy! I haven’t heard of Yoghurt but I’d like to give it and your recipe a try!
I’ve used yogurt in cakes, but I’ve never thought to substitute in cookies before. These look so good!
These cookies- bars look just amazing. I have never tried yogurt in baking. i must give it a try
Ive never tried putting yoghurt in a cookie recipe before but I’m guessing it’s going to be delicious! I’ll definitely give it a try.
With school almost done soon. I am looking forward to having some fun and trying new recipes. My 8 year old daughter loves helping me bake and cook. She also is a big fan of Chocolate chips and peanutbutter and cookies and if I tell her she can have it all in a bar she will want to try it. Thanks I’m going to pin this recipe.
I am officially licking my screen now. Lol. I can see the ooey gooey goodness of these cookies. Yum
This looks so delicious. I wish my son ate peanut butter. Interesting idea to substitute yogurt. Great idea.
These look amazing. It is the perfect kind brownie/bar for me!
I love using yogurt as a sub! What a great recipe- it sounds SO decadent!
