I’m sorry 0% Greek yogurt- Unless you’re used in recipes, I’d never eat you alone.

When it comes to yogurt, I’m not one who enjoys the fruit flavored or sweetened ones- I love using the plain varieties as a blank canvas and adding my own cereal, trail mix or this delicious granola on top. However, I never ate yogurt this way in America.

Why?

Whole milk yogurt. 

BOSS.

I think it’s safe to say I sampled every single whole milk yogurt available. While there were slight differences between each brand, they were all overall thick, creamy and extremely satisfying. They were also insanely delicious (and better, in my opinion!) to be enjoyed on its own. 

The other week, the whole milk single serving tubs were accidentally mixed with the 0% kind. I was clearly not paying any attention at all, adding a mix of both kinds on my shopping basket. When I got back to my apartment, I loaded my fridge with my snacks and come snack time, went to enjoy a yogurt…

A yogurt of tart and bland punishment.

After being accustomed to a delicious, creamy full cream version, 0% could NOT compare- It was watery (for a Greek yogurt) and on its own, was simply not satisfying. In fact, I needed to add granola and some homemade strawberry jelly to make it a solid snack. I looked back in my fridge and saw there was another container of the 0% kind left.

FAIL WHALE.

Or was it? 

While 0% was not something I enjoyed snacking on its own, it certainly works well in recipes. You guys LOVED this healthy banana oat Greek yogurt 1 minute muffin so how about this combination get some cookie treatment? Breakfast style. I adapted my flourless banana cookies, adding a boost of fiber (Hi, chia seeds) and some dairy free chocolate chips for some fun. Similar to my muffin recipe, I tested it out using a dairy free cultured yogurt (the closest in terms of texture to Greek yogurt) and it worked out great, if not a little more hearty!

These healthy flourless Greek Yogurt Banana Oat Breakfast cookies are thick, chewy and extremely satisfying, the perfect breakfast to keep you satisfied for hours! Packed with fiber, protein, some healthy fats and wholesome carbs, they also contain no butter, oil, flour or sugar! They use just one bowl and less than 25 minutes in the oven and voila- Breakfast sorted for the week! These breakfast cookies are naturally gluten free and refined sugar free and because they were tested using a dairy free blend, they are also vegan too! 

HACK! These breakfast cookies are NOT overly sweet- I opted to rely on the natural sweetness of the overripe bananas and dash of pure maple syrup. If you are after a sweetener cookie, I’d recommend adding 1/4 cup or so of a granulated sweetener, like my favorite zero calorie monk fruit blend.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups rolled oats (I used certified gluten free)
  2. pinch sea salt
  3. 2 T chia seeds
  4. pinch cinnamon
  5. 1/2 cup + granulated sweetener of choice*
  6. 2 large overripe bananas, mashed
  7. 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (I used 0% plain and a dairy free cultured blend)
  8. 2 T nut butter of choice (I used smooth peanut butter)
  9. 2 T pure maple syrup
  10. 1/2-3/4 cup chocolate chips
  11. 1/2 banana, sliced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a large baking tray lightly with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, chia seeds, sea salt and cinnamon and mix well.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, add your mashed banana, Greek yogurt, peanut butter and maple syrup and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Pour wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix well, stirring chocolate chips through at the end. Using a 1/4 cup, pour mixture onto the greased baking tray and press each one firmly into a cookie shape. Add a slice of banana on each one and bake for 20-25 minutes, until oats are golden and banana has caramelized. Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for 5 minutes, before enjoying or allowing to cool completely.
Notes
  1. * This is completely optional. These cookies are not overly sweet so if you want a sweet cookie, add this in.
  2. These cookies taste delicious warmed up slightly and topped with a dash of maple syrup or peanu butter. They are freezer friendly and best kept in the refrigerator.

  1. Oh hello, cookies haven’t looked this appealing to me since …Christmas. As in: when my grandma let her baking magic happen.
    Show me one person who can’t tell the difference between non-fat yogurt and the real kind = full-fat or at least some fat. I do use low-fat Greek yogurt/Quark when I add all. the. toppings/mix-ins but never ever plain. In fact, 0 % doesn’t exist in Germany.

  2. Before I was vegan I loved yogurt hardcore. Chobani was actually the last thing to go for me in that transition so I get why people like it. I find now instead of yogurt (even though vegan ones are great!) I don’t eat it much anymore. I traded it for bananas and will never look back. I use plain soy yogurt to make dips, but that’s about it. These cookies look tasty Arman, yogurt included 🙂

  3. Basically if you take the fat out of anything you take out the deliciousness. ? Aaaaaaaanyways, I really really miss that you can no longer deliver these goodies to me! ?? come back soon!!

  5. I totally agree! There are some really bad Greek yogurts out there. I eat yogurt almost everyday during the week, and I have tried a bunch of different brands. I finally discovered Cabot’s vanilla bean Greek yogurt, and I’ve never looked back…but before that? It was definitely dicey. Good call on baking with it instead!

  6. VERY easy to make your own Greek yogurt ! Not sure if you would even need a yogurt maker with your weather down there. Just take a tablespoon of live yogurt from the top of the pot is best add 1000ml of milk and keep it in a warm place for about 8 hours then put in the fridge. To make it Greek you leave the yogurt to strain through a muslim cloth for however long you desire as it will keep getting thicker as you leave it. Leave it overnight and you get soft cheese, if you leave it to long just add some whey back in. Easy :o)

  7. Just discovered soy greek-style yogurt and was thinking it would make a nice cookie. You seem to have everything I am looking for here. My new fave recipe blog (which is saying a LOT because I hate to bake as much as you love it). BTW my house currently smells DIVINE thanks to your applesauce cookies.

  8. I used plain yogurt at full fat, no extra banana, and fresh homemade Soynut butter. Dark chocolate chunks in half and white milk chocolate chips in the other. Mix of honey and maple syrup. It came out well, and glad my family can enjoy delicious healthy cookies as snacks!
