Preheat oven to 350. Prep baking sheet with parchment or neutral baking spray.
Use a mixer for Bowl 1. Cream together yogurt, sugars, coconut oil, egg, + vanilla. Should be lump-free.
In Bowl 2 whisk together flours, salt, + baking soda. Add to bowl 1; mix on med-low until blended and thick dough-like batter consistency. Careful not to overmix the batter. Should only take 30 -45 seconds to blend completely.
Fold in chocolate + cashews. Use an ice cream scoop or spoon to drop 12 even-sized cookies on the tray. Bake on middle rack 13-15 minutes until lightly golden and gently springs to touch like cake.
Cool on wire rack. Meanwhile, use a small bowl for the ganache. Add chips + milk. Microwave 30-45 seconds. Whisk until chocolate blends into a creamy consistency. If pieces remain, microwave an addt’l 15-20 seconds. Whisk again.
Dip the top of each cookie, doing a slight swirl motion to coat well. After the cookies are dipped, place cashew on top, + sprinkle very lightly with coarse sea salt. The ganache will be set when matte in finish.
