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 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!
Lori
