Maybe make a fruit and cheese plate, or another healthy finger food. As you said, your friends will likely bring goodies of their own, so make something a bit different that fits into your healthy lifestyle a little better than biscuits and scones.
Crackers, cheese, some nice deli meats, vegetables and fruit could go a long way, and a tray like that feels fancy, even when it is just simple. When I do something like that, I will usually do something like this:
lean, low-sodium deli ham
whole grain crackers
a 'hard' cheese, like cheddar
a 'soft' cheese, like a brie
Sounds like a lot, but you are only putting out for 3 people. So, 12 crackers, 3 ounces of each deli meat, 6 each of the fruit, 6 each of the vegetables, and 3 ounces of each cheese. The deli meats can be rolled up into 1 ounce servings and pinned with a tooth pick to make them easier to eat.
I know this is not the same as baking, but it doesn't sound like you really need to. So give yourself a break, and choose items that, if you have left overs, won't make you feel guilty for eating them.
There are no elevators in the house of success.
