Sugar-free oatmeal yogurt cookies
Cookies are a classic. Some are sweet, others are simple… You simply have to have them at home and they’re perfect as an afternoon snack along with a coffee or to sweeten any breakfast.
However, the recipe that we share here doesn’t contain sugar nor artificial sweeteners, meaning that these are different types of cookies than the ones you’re probably used to. Therefore, we decided to share two recipes: one that doesn’t include sugar and another that includes honey.
However, both types are nutritious because they’re made from oats and yogurt, which are healthy choices. Try them out!

First recipe: Sugar-free oatmeal yogurt cookies
Using extracts such as vanilla allows you to replace sugar in this recipe.
- 200 g of oat flakes
- 4 eggs
- 1 pinch of salt
- 45 g of plain yogurt (which is thick)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Ground cinnamon
- First, preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Then, mix the eggs with the vanilla in a bowl and beat with a whisk. After that, gradually add the yogurt as you continue stirring. At this point, it’s important to know that you must drain the yogurt well.
- After, also add the olive oil and salt and continue mixing.
- Then, add the oats and the cinnamon and keep mixing. You should end up with a slightly liquid dough. However, you should still be able to shape it.
- After that, grease a baking tray and start shaping your cookies from the dough. As it’s a little liquid, you’ll have to use a spoon to scoop up the dough and then shape the cookies with the help of your hands or the spoon.
- Finally, put the tray in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the cookies turn golden.
- Take them out of the oven, wait for them to cool and… enjoy!

Second recipe: Oatmeal yogurt cookies with honey
If you want to add a sweet touch to your cookies, you can use honey as a sweetener.
- 1 cup of plain yogurt
- 1 cup of oat flakes
- 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine
- 1 cup of oatmeal
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 5 tablespoons of honey
- First, preheat the oven to 390°F.
- Then, add the butter at room temperature and the honey to a bowl, and beat everything until well-blended.
- After that, add the oat flakes, oatmeal, and baking powder and keep mixing. If you wish, you can add cinnamon to make your cookies more flavorful.
- Then, add the cup of plain yogurt and the eggs. Mix well until you get a smooth dough.
- Grease a baking tray and start shaping your cookies from the dough. Space them out in the baking tray so they don’t spread into each other.
- Finally, when you finish shaping all your cookies, put the baking pan in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 390°F.
- After, take them out of the oven, let cool, and… enjoy!
A few extras
- You can add chia seeds or any other seeds to both recipes. Moreover, you can also add chopped nuts or even raisins, especially to the second recipe.
- Please note that these cookies don’t rise that much in the oven. Therefore, the thinner you make them, the crunchier they’ll be.
- Although we suggest using plain yogurt, you can also opt for flavored yogurt to make even tastier cookies.
- On the other hand, if you prefer, you can shape them to be much bigger to make pancakes or crepes instead of cookies. This way, you can add whatever you want to them (jam, cheese, etc.) and enjoy them in many other ways.
Finally, you should know that these cookies are ideal for breakfast and lunch, as well as snacks between meals. Serve them with natural fruit juice to get a healthy, delicious, and nutritious combination.
