I enjoy meringues - very low in fat, but with a bit of protein.
Also, just having one cookie yourself can be good, if you eat it slowly.
I try to stay away from coffee cakes or muffins things like that as they are so high in calories.

Smarged (hope I got that right): Actually, your completely logical question, makes mine a little silly. I had not yet gone to the recipe pages, but I guess I was just thinking that some of you may have some favorites. But I completely appreciate the links. I'll spend some time on them tonight.
BtheFlowerGirl: I like the idea of making things larger and thinner... I have made cookies smaller, meaning really a smaller diameter... but then there is the feeling that you are getting less. I can see that spreading the dough out thinner, you can imagine that the cooke is the same size and satisfying.
I'll let you know if I find anything particularly good.
just a thought- if you make a wide but thin cookie it will give the impression of getting a lot. if the recipe says to make 2 dozen make them smaller and get 3 or 4 dozen. Italian and other European desserts are usually less sweet than our American treats.

Hi, Lori, this might be a stupid question, but have you tried going to the Spark Recipes page? There are lots of great healthy, low-calorie treats. Here's a link to the page.
And this is a link to Spark recipes for desserts with no sugar:
And a link to Spark cookies made with honey:
And here are a couple of other links to healthy sweets:
Hope some of these help you, Lori! They look so good I'm going to try some of them myself!!

Hi everyone, I could use a little help. My DH loves to have a little sweet with his tea in the evening...he's south Asian, so its a bit of a ritual. I have tried to use only fruit, but he feels like he is on a diet. So I have been looking for healthier recipes for cookies, or other desserts. I would kind of like to use small amounts of honey for him and just have a slightly sweet cookie rather than using artificial sweetners. He doesn't really like things too sweet, its just the notion of a little "sweet" with tea that he's looking for.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
