Peanut Butter Cheerios and Chocolate Cheerios mixed together and portioned into snack-sized baggies. Or 3-2-1 Cake. Take 3 Tablespoons of dry cake mix, 2 Tablespoons of water and mix in a coffee mug sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave for 1 minute.

A Russell Stover Sugar Free Pecan Delight is a great treat every once and a while.

I just discovered NUT PUNCH bars (see terranut.com) at a local farmer's market. 92 calories. contains: chia, flax, spirulina, oats, peanuts, raw organic sugar and stevia leaves. It's also high fiber. I thought it would be gross, but I actually thought it tasted pretty good and the texture was like a soft cookie. My husband didn't like it but thought it was edible. It's worth a try...

After a 2 month binge on sweets & home made baking, I'm finally at a place where I find fruit satisfies my sweet tooth. One of my favourites is fat free or low fat Greek yogurt with berries & All Bran Buds. It has sweetness, protein that fills me up, and crunch & fiber from the cereal.
I certainly don't recommend the "2 Month Binge" as a method of dealing with a sweet tooth, but rather can attest to the ability we have to change our taste buds.
Good luck from one sweet tooth to another.

1/2 c. of honey nut cheerios really gives you that sweet your craving and eating one piece at a time can last you for a while.

If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

There is nothing wrong with indulging in ONE Little Debbie, or chocolate as long as you don't allow this to become a habit..if you are craving something, eat it-just a small amount or just One. Include a treat in your plan. Once you are emotionally satisfied with one, you will no longer be tempted. Today I plan One scoop vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of hersheys syrup-I place it in a small ramakin type condiment bowl instead of a larger dessert bowl. As a evening snack. Plus I'm losing weight!

When I'm craving chocolate... unsweetened cocoa powder is my go-to. You do have to add a bit of sweetener to offset the bitterness but you can use mashed banana, unsweetened applesauce, real maple syrup, honey or artificial sweeteners if you go that route. A tablespoon runs around 15-20 cals.

Or just add a tablespoon of chocolate chips to your oatmeal or yogurt.

A lot of people are put off by artificial sweeteners but I use instant sugar free pudding powder in a lot of recipes; yogurt parfaits, frozen yogurt, overnight oatmeal.

I find protein powders are usually sweet so if you get a chocolate or vanilla you can use a little bit to flavour homemade "desserts". The added protein is always a bonus.

I use fat reduced cool whip to make icings (mix with PB or cocoa powder) or on top of black bean brownies or chickpea blondies (google them). Or you can mash a banana or use unsweetened applesauce in some Greek yogurt with cinnamon. Cream cheese and banana or cocoa powder is another good one.

A teaspoon of powdered sugar is only 10 cals, I add it to French toast or crepes.

Overnight oatmeals are one of my favourite "desserts".

I just had a mint chocolate chip one;

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4-1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk).
A drop of peppermint extract (careful it's powerful stuff!)
1/2 tablespoon honey (or sweetener of choice)
1 tbsp. chocolate chips

Put it in the fridge for around 4+ hours and add the chocolate chips when it's done.
If you really want to get fancy, make an icing and layer it. I make mine with cool whip and cocoa powder.

Or another favourite;

Freeze some raspberries or strawberries
Same first 3 ingredients divided.
In the first container- 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder, coffee powder, a little sweetener
In the second container- a small amount of mashed banana and vanilla extract

Put in fridge. When ready mash about 1/3 of a banana into the frozen berries until it becomes like a frozen soft serve. Then alternate layers; vanilla oats, soft serve (maybe a few chocolate chips), mocha layer, soft serve, repeat.

This is one of my favourite "healthy" dessert blogs:

This is my favorite, peel and slice one apple, place in mug with enough water to cover bottom, microwave about 2 minutes until soft, cool slightly, sprinkle cinnamon and a dollop of fat free or low fat cool whip on top. (optional, sprinkle one vanilla wafer crumbs on top first) Almost like hot apple pie! Yum!

I buy Trader Joe's 100-calorie dark chocolate bars and eat them with a few almonds. The bar is the perfect size to keep me on track but satisfies the chocolate craving. I have heard that dark chocolate is better for you than milk chocolate, and the almonds are tasty and help fill me up, making it less likely that I will eat a second chocolate bar.

This week I'm experimenting with raspberries and grapes dipped in low fat vanilla Greek yogurt and then frozen. The grapes need to be halved to make them bite-size, but my kids are really enjoying them. Low fat worked better than fat free, because the fat free was more icy and froze harder than the low fat. The next batch will be full fat coconut yogurt.

Below is a link for a single-serving chocolate brownie recipe I found on Sparkrecipes. You can play with the recipe a bit to make it more to your liking. I've used milk in place of the yogurt. use regular flour, added extra sugar etc. It's nice because you can have a brownie without having an entire plate of them to tempt you :)

Have you thought about nibbling on a dried date or fig? They have helped me in the past when I felt a craving for something sweet!

To me having sweets in moderation helps to not feel deprived. You can easily fit a small little Debbie into the calories for the day in my opinion.
Some people find dark chocolate helps satisfy cravings

I have 2 go-too sweet chocolate treats that I just love!

1. Weight Watchers Bite Size Dark Chocolates, made by Whitman's Candies. There are 4 pieces in each pouch and 6 pouches per box. Each pouch is 120 calories and 3 points plus.

2. Skinny Cow Dark Chocolate Dreamy Clusters. There are several pieces in each pouch and 6 pouches per box. Each pouch is 120 calories.

I don't eat sweets every day but when I do want one, I have two choices to choose from. Sometimes I only eat one or two pieces from a pouch and save the rest for another day.

I almost found myself in trouble tonight when I got a craving for sweets. I was able to control myself to an extent but still managed to eat one of my sons Little Debbie Fancy Cakes (only 1). At times like this I need something really sweet and fruit just doesn't cut it.

I've also found myself craving chocolate. I admit I ate a teaspoon full of Hershey's chocolate syrup yesterday.

Thankfully, this doesn't happen but every once in a while.

Granted I was well within my calories on both instances but I need some healthy sweet options that are under 100 calories and are easy to make.

Can you please share your go to sweet treats.

Thanks
T
