Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Cookies

High in protein, low in sugar and bursting with flavor, these cookies are worth adding to your dessert rotation. Serve them in August when blueberries are at their freshest for the best possible flavor or make them from frozen blueberries for a taste of summer in the winter cold.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1½ cups plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • zest from 1 lemon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. Mix together the sugar, applesauce and yogurt. When well-blended, add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and combine thoroughly. Gently fold in the blueberries and lemon zest.
  4. Drop cookie dough onto baking sheets by tablespoons. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just brown at the edges. Cool on the baking sheet for two minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
