No-Bake Chewy Truffle Cookies

These chewy sweet cookies start with dried dates for a natural sweetness, instead of the traditional combination of milk and sugar, and then get mixed with some cocoa, reduced-fat peanut butter and ground whole-wheat graham crackers for a no-oven-needed treat.

Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes

Oil takes the place of butter in these cupcakes, making them lower in fat, but also making the crumb moist. Also, all of the flour is whole-wheat! The frosting is simply sweetened reduced-fat cream cheese, but it's plenty tasty.

Cherry Almond Chocolate Clusters

Dark chocolate, toasted chopped almonds and cherries are the things a dreamy dessert is made of. Cherries will balance the nuts and chocolate with their tangy flavor, plus they are loaded with nutrition. Make these clusters as the finale of a romantic meal without the usual guilt of date-night desserts.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Thins

These crunchy little cookies are a satisfying alternative to regular peanut butter cookies. Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids — look for them in specialty health food stores if you don't see them in the regular grocery store.

Mascarpone Mini Cupcakes with Strawberry Glaze

The secret ingredient in these moist cupcakes? Boxed white cake mix. Adding only egg whites instead of whole eggs ensures that the mix becomes extra fluffy and also stays low in cholesterol. And because they are made in mini muffin tins, these cupcakes are portioned so you can indulge without going overboard.
