No cookie tray would be complete without an oatmeal option. These crunchy cookies combine vitamin E-rich nuts and high-fiber oatmeal with a touch of ginger -- all for only 70 calories and 4.5 grams of fat (2 grams of saturated fat). We like the Food Network Kitchens' presentation idea; just wrap them in some festive ribbon and you've got a take-home treat for party guests.

(P.S.: Don't forget to give friends with allergies a heads up on the pecans.)
