5 skinny cookies, 100 calories (or less!)

I love cookies! Hands down, they’re my favorite dessert.

People’s jaws, including a few of my co-worker’s, hit the floor when I say that. How could I, a dietitian, love something so inherently unhealthy—and (gasp!) eat them too?

Well, I do! But I like to keep my cookie needs in check—and not waste a day’s worth of calories fulfilling a craving—so I often turn to EatingWell’s cookie collection to find something satisfying, but not loaded with calories.

Here are my 5 favorite diet-friendly cookies (that don’t taste one bit diet-friendly). They’re all 100 calories—or less—so you can indulge without breaking the calorie bank.

Almond & Honey-Butter Cookies (94 calories per cookie)

Boot Tracks (63 calories per cookie)

Yummy Molasses Crackles (79 calories per cookie)

Pineapple Coconut Bites (101 calories per cookie)

Dark Chocolate Meringue Drops (28 calories per cookie)

How do you satisfy your sweet tooth without breaking the calorie bank? Tell us what you think below.
