Homemade cookies are a wise dessert choice. They’re portioned, easy to make and you get to control the ingredients. Try these Healthy Eats-approved sweets — fancy enough for company, yet casual enough for an evening snack.
- Chocolate Fix
- Triple Chocolate Cookies
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Kitchen Sink Cookies
Good quality chocolate, whole grain oats, tahini (sesame paste) and dried fruit are just a few of the ingredients in these choco-fabulous cookie recipes:
- Citrus, Nuts, Sweetness & Spice
- Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze
- Ginger Crinkle Cookies
- Date Bar Cookies
- Honey Pistachio Biscotti
Though Toby might disagree, there’s more to cookies than chocolate. Creamy ricotta cheese makes light and cake-like cookies. Low-calorie flavorings such as lemon and ginger add big flavor. Sweet and tender dates help to make cookies chewy and sweet with less butter and sugar. And nuts are a great way to add crunch and healthy fat to your sweet treat.
- Light As Air
- Espresso Chip Meringues
- Strawberry Meringue Cookies
Like angel food cake, egg whites make light, delicate and low-fat cookies. Try these recipes for sweet and crispy meringues.
