Here's a recipe I made before. It is really good if you like coconut, you can't tell the difference. I'm not sure about the calories/nutrition stats tho because I altered it to make it gf.

MOCK COCONUT CREAM PIE

2 CUPS COOKED SPAGHETTI SQUASH, CHOPPED SMALL
1 CUP SKIM MILK
4 EGGS
1/2 CUP EVAPORATED SKIMMED MILK
1/4 CUP GLUTEN FREE BAKING FLOUR
1/2 - 1 TSP. XANTHAN OR GUAR GUM
1/4 CUP SUGAR
2 T + 2TSP OF MARGARINE
1/2 TSP VANILLA EXTRACT
1/2 TSP COCONUT EXTRACT
1/4 TSP GLUTEN FREE BAKING POWDER

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray. spread squash over bottom and sides of pan to form crust.(use back of a spoon) set aside.
In blender put remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, pour over squash. bake for 50 min to 1 hour. until knife inserted in center comes out clean. let pie cool on rack for 1 hour, wrap and keep in frig.
(optional) can serve with ff whip cream on top.

Wow! That sounds like life around here!
Do dates count as pitted fruit? (My son is allergic to peaches, etc, but can have dates?)
If so, you can make a great treat with dates as the base, or you can substitute mashed banana.
Cook some dates (or mash some bananas) and then add stuff like dried fruit, dried coconut, sesame seeds (unless those count as nuts?) etc, until the mixture is quite thick. (I also add soy protein powder)
Then, form it into balls or press it into a pan and refigerate. It's a yummy treat, and healthy... Not particularly low carb, but not overly high...
Not sure if that helps... I'll keep looking!

Are you allowed applesauce? I reg. use the applesauce cups (unsweetened) but I don't count carbs so to speak. So I'm not sure about the amount of carbs--I do know that 1 unsweetened applesauce cup from Motts is 2 pts on the weight watchers diet as I used to be with them.

How about small savoury meatballs (do not add rusk/crumbs/oats), rather add egg and herbs for taste, and grill in oven. (serve cold/room temp)
with that, cut fingers of celery/pepepers/carrots etc
and for a nice colour some radishes.
Play with Fruit and Veg in small cubes / fingers and display on a plate.
Everyone can then take what they want, and you cover a whole range of non-s.

If you can think of any baked goods that are low carb too...
And with no nuts and no chocolate, I don't even know if I can bake like that!

The challenge:
Bring a snack to work for Monday morning coffee break. The food must fit the following:

No nuts
No gluten
Generally healthy
No raw apples
No fruit with pits (cherries, peaches, etc)
No dairy
No chocolate
Low carb
Vegetarian


As I am regularly unable to eat other people's foods, I have a soft spot for dietary restrictions and I would love to find something I can bring that everyone can eat (now whether they choose to or not is a different issue). I know bringing different things is a possibillity but Id rather just find one thing.

The only thing I have come up with so far is celery sticks with dairy free cream cheese and a few craisins on top.

Any other ideas would be hugely appreciated!
