Mocha Yogurt Cookies

After seeing all of the chocolate cookbooks on my table, Jake asked, "so, are you baking anything tonight?" No, hadn't planned on it. But, since you mention it, I can whip something up.

Wanting something slightly healthier, I substituted half the butter with plain yogurt.

1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C plain yogurt
1-1/2 C organic raw sugar
2 eggs
2 t almond extract
3 C white whole wheat flour
1 t baking soda
2 T cold coffee
1/2 t pink Himalaya salt
2 C white chocolate chips
dark chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the almond extract. Stir in flour, baking soda, and white chocolate chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans and press a dark chocolate chunk into the top of each cookie.

Bake for about 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned. Let cool on a wire rack. Serve with a glass of milk.
