Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Cookie Bars With Yoghurt Substitution
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.
