Blueberries are both healthy and great tasting. I altered this original recipe by adding a bunch of them, along with some dried cranberries and some yogurt for butter. They are still big and chewy and super yummy but healthier as well.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • ¼ cup non-fat plain yogurt

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • ½ cup blueberries

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.

  2. Sift together flour and baking soda in a small bowl; set aside.

  3. Beat melted butter, yogurt, brown sugar, and white sugar in a bowl until blended. Beat in vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy; mix in flour mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips, blueberries, and cranberries by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop 1/4 cup cookie dough 3-inches apart on prepared baking sheets.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until edges are lightly toasted, 15 to 17 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
