Gooey and Delicious Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Made with Greek Style Yogurt!

There is no better way to beat the winter blues than with a batch of piping hot, gooey and delicious chocolate chip cookies… are we right, or are we right? So with that said, what if we told you they were made using Paris Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Plain Yogurt as an added health benefit!

What is Greek Style Yogurt?

Paris Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Plain Yogurt is a nutrient-packed style of yogurt that has many health benefits. In the Greek style yogurt making process, there is an added step to drain away excess water, lactose, and minerals. Leaving a beautifully thick & creamy, rich yogurt with less sugar, more energy-providing carbs and a wonderfully tart taste. The acidity in the yogurt also allows your body to better absorb other nutrients.[1]

What are the benefits of Greek Style Yogurt?

Paris Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Yogurt when consumed daily can provide your body with vital nutrients such as protein, calcium, Iodine, and potassium. All while helping to keep you feeling fuller for longer on fewer calories. Yet perhaps most importantly, yogurt provides healthy bacteria for the digestive tract which can benefit your whole body![2]

[3]Additional benefits include:

  • Yogurt has a higher amount of protein than milk, allowing your body to build healthy bones, muscles, skin & hair
  • Probiotics help to improve and maintain your gut health
  • The average serving of Greek yogurt has 18.7% of your required daily dose of calcium
  • Due to the high protein, it’s a fantastic workout recovery food!

Not to mention, the thick and creamy texture of Pairs Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Yogurt makes it a wonderful food substitution for ingredients such as mayonnaise, cheese & cream, which can help with weight management. Pop it in your smoothies, on-top of your granola, in your home-made popsicles or as a substitution to ingredients in baking for a healthy addition!

Dee Pene from @adelaidefoodauthority shows us how to incorporate Paris Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Plain Yogurt into Baker by Natures Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe.

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chunk Cookies


  • 1 and 1/4 cups SR flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 250g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Paris Creek Farms Organic Greek Style Plain Yogurt
  • 2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling, optional


  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine the flours, baking soda, and salt; whisk well to combine; set aside.
  2. In the body of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl using a handheld electric beater, beat the butter, sugars, and vanilla on medium-speed until light and fluffy; about 2 minutes.
  3. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, and scraping down the sides as necessary. Add in the Greek yogurt, beating just until incorporated. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add in the dry ingredients, beating just until combined.
  4. Turn the mixer off and stir in the chocolate chunks with a wooden spoon.
  5. Cover the bowl with a piece of saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours – up to 24 hours (allow the dough to slightly come to room temperature if in the fridge longer than 3 hours; just until it’s easy to scoop).
  6. 30 minutes prior to baking, preheat your oven to 180 degrees (C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  7. Using a large spoon or melon baller (preferred), scoop out 3 tablespoon sized rounds of dough; using your hands roll the dough into a ball, then place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with all of the cookie dough, spacing them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake cookies – one sheet at a time – for 11-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Sprinkle warm cookies with sea salt (if using).
  9. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Dee Pene adjusted the recipe and added only 1 cup of brown sugar instead of white as well to reduce the sweetness of the cookie dough and added Biscoff in the middle of each cookie before placing them in the oven for that extra gooey-ness!
