Coconut Oat and Yoghurt Cookies

The nice people at 'TOTAL' very kindly sent me some Greek Yoghurt to try out.
The great thing about TOTAL is it can be used in cooking and the 2% and 10% versions won't split when heated.

Total Greek Yogurt

I'm already a big fan of TOTAL yoghurt and always use it in cooking as it I really do think it is the best! Proper natural Greek yoghurt produced in Greece.
On with the Coconut Oat and TOTAL Greek Yoghurt Cookies!.......

Coconut Cookies

Confession: I'd never made a cookie before in my life and used a basic cookie recipe adding bits as I thought necessary but I was determined to add TOTAL yoghurt! 
As you can see the cookies were a success - even though they were a bit man sized!

To make about 12 large cookies:
A large mixing bowl and another smaller bowl
110g unsalted butter - softened
110g soft brown sugar
110g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
100g 'Total' Greek Yoghurt
2 tablespoons of runny honey
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (Bicarb)
280g plain flour
140g oats
175g desiccated coconut - unsweetened
a little milk if needed

How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 180c/350f or Gas 4
Cream the butter with the both the brown and caster sugar until soft and creamy - a wooden spoon will do the trick.
Now put in the eggs and vanilla extract. Give a mix together and then add the yoghurt and honey.

In a separate large mixing bowl combine the salt, baking powder, soda and the flour. Once that's done you can add in the butter, sugar, egg, yoghurt and honey mixture.
Mix well and then add the oats and coconut. If the mixture is way to dry then you can add a little milk - just a little at a time.

Cover a cookie sheet with greaseproof paper.  Dollop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture and using wet fingers pat down till they are the right size.
You will probably have to cook them in two batches.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Just make sure they don't get too done as they're better when they are nice and soft!
Allow to cool on a wire rack.
*Store in a airtight container and they will be good for the next day or two.
