Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt

I saw this recipe pinned to Pinterest recently and since I always have these ingredients in the house, I figured this would be a great snack after completing my weekly grocery shopping. I’m looking forward to prepping my snacks for the week today, doing some laundry, and adding to my blog. I already hit up the gym this morning – dancing my heart out to Sh’Bam. Carlos is out playing Broomball on the lake – he is definitely an outdoorsy winter person. I am not. I also want to point out that I use Fage Greek yogurt over Chobani because I think it is creamier. I also find Fage at least $1 cheaper at Target than at our local grocery store.

Another option with this recipe is to add a little cream cheese and use cinnamon pita chips or something similar for a dip. Also delicious. With this, I added extra chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.

Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt

Recipe Modified from: The Suburban Girl Gone Country

Ingredients:

  • 1 small container or 6-8 oz. from a larger container of Fage or Chobani plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon natural nut butter (I used almond butter, but peanut butter is also a good option.)
  • 1 teaspoon honey, pure maple syrup or agave nectar (I used honey.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted wheat germ (I think this is my favorite part! It adds an amazing texture.)
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Mix yogurt, nut butter, honey, extract and wheat germ together. Top with chocolate chips.
  2. To spice it up, try butterscotch chips, raisins, pecans, or walnuts.

  1. This. Sounds. Incredible. I’m gonna try it. I love Greek yogurt with lots of stuff in it – I usually make mine with fruit, honey, and nuts – this sounds like a great alternative for a dessert or snack. Thanks!
