Two years ago, I invented a cookie - oatberry yogurt cookies - and they've been super successful ever since. In honor of my yummy invention, I always make sure to bake a batch on the anniversary - October 2nd. I try to make them a few times a year, but I mak it a point to celebrate with 'em on the 2nd.
This year, I decided that in addition to the tradiational cookie recipe, I would develop a healthified version. Now, my original recipe is actually pretty healthy, just a little higher in calories and fat than my mom wanted for her cookies. The originals are full of oats, vanilla yogurt and blueberries - and the new ones kept the same base flavors. To make it a little lighter I swapped some butter and oil for a little more yogurt and a few tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce. Also, I swapped the all-purpose flour for half whole wheat, and lessened the sugar count.
Result: a new wheat-ier oatberry! I was so pleased that the swaps worked, and the new cookie is pretty delicious too... but nothing can beat the original's blueberry muffin-like amazingness. Nothing beats a classic :)
