10 Single-Serving Sweet Treats

By , SparkPeople Blogger
If I could choose what to take with me to the proverbial desert island, sweet treats would be right up there on my list. One of the reasons I exercise so consistently is so that I have the option to enjoy them with family, when eating out or for spontaneous celebrations. At the same time, I refuse to cook large quantities of desserts, mainly because I end up throwing them out to avoid temptation. One strategy I find useful is to prepare single-serving desserts that satisfy the urge, but without circumventing my nutrition plan. Enjoy these fun, tasty and petitely portioned treats.

Some really good replacement desserts! Report
I would like to see the people that write these blogs at least check the calorie contents before adding recipes. There are more incorrect nutritional content SP recipes then you realize. The first recipe in this article is actually 263 calories, the amounts in the recipe do not match the amounts in the nutritional content. The chocolate chip cookie for 185 calories does not include chocolate chips. I didn't look at the rest of the recipes, but beware on the calorie counts, past articles have shown similar errors.

Awesome Report

Some neat ideas. Report

These recipes sound yummy! I'm definitely going to try a couple! Report
These are a great addition to my recipes. I especially like the single or double batches. When make the smaller batches, I am not tempted to eat them all at once! Report
These look fantastic!. I was just commenting that I don't bake much anymore because I cannot have sweets in the house and still have the will power for only an occasional portion. This is going to make all the difference for me because I won't feel denied and they are healthy. I can double the ingredients and have one serving for my husband. Report
SparkPeople should check the calculations that people used to determine calorie counts before posting in blog such as this. For the 117 calorie cake, .06 cup was used for a 2 tablespoon measure for some of the ingredients. .06 is for 1 tablespoon (there are 16 tablespoons in a cup). Therefore, the cake has more calories than listed (unless the ingredients in the recipe listing is incorrect). Report
We need healthy substitutes for sugar, not chemicals or over processed stuff. Report
Great idea for an article. Too bad most of them have splenda or "sugar free" ingredients. Yuck. I'd rather have real sugar but unfortunately that would put the calorie counts for these treats too high to be good candidates for a SP article. Report
Yummy...added to my favorites, Thanks for sharing! Report
Ingenious! Report
