These Chocolate Almond Coconut Yogurt Cookies are chewy, delicious, and the perfect flavor! These cookies are made with vanilla yogurt, but you could use this recipe as just a starting off point. Make it with strawberry yogurt and add only chocolate chips. Or make it with lemon yogurt and add some blueberries. The possibilities are endless. If you want to do more baking with yogurt be sure to check out this three ingredient yogurt bread.

On a baking sheet, the Chocolate Almond Coconut Yogurt Cookies are in beautiful circles topped with dried shredded coconut.

I’m so happy to be partnering with Yoplait, especially given their amazing #MomOn campaign! Thank you so much for supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible!

I have come to the realization in the last week or so that I am not one of those moms who is  . . . . friendly. Hahahaha!

This realization came to me when we were standing outside of the 7,534th activity we were at for one of my kids last week. I was busy on my laptop working and kind of realized that I was the ONLY mom who wasn’t chatting with the other moms.

Ugh.

And there I am with my laptop scheduling Facebook posts for Wine & Glue. You guys. Can you even imagine what the other parents think? They are probably questioning who this crazy anti-social lady is and why she insists on bringing her laptop with her to play on Facebook.

One of the reasons that I’m so pumped to be working with Yoplait this year is because they have this incredible #MomOn campaign, basically encouraging moms to be who you are not worry about whether the world is judging you or not. And then I thought – even if I am dragging my laptop around to “play” on Facebook while my kids are doing activities like some weirdo – my kids are doing activities! That’s a win, right?

And while we are on the topic of the trillions of activities my kids are in, can we talk for a second about how hungry it makes them? Like stark raving mad hungry, which is why we love all the snack options that Yoplait has to offer. Great snacks that are super easy to grab as we run out the door for taekwando, or swimming or ballet or hip hop or a lecture on quantum physics. Just kidding about that last one.

Yoplait has these new Mix-Ins that are totally amazing! They come in a variety of delicious flavors – the Key Lime is probably my favorite – including this Coconut Chocolate Almond! They make a great snack for the kiddos …. if I feel like sharing.

Make these Chocolate Almond Coconut Yogurt Cookies!

Their Coconut Chocolate Almond Mix-Ins flavor is so awesome that it inspired these amazing cookies! You really can’t beat that flavor combination!

These cookies are made with Yoplait Original instead of butter. It makes them soft and cake like, with a little bit of chewiness. They are amazing right out of the oven!
