Looking for lighter dessert ideas for Thanksgiving??

I have some "covered dish" events in early December for our 4-H club and the bariatric support group I attend. I've been surfing the web looking for desserts that I can enjoy too. Here's links to several I've bookmarked/printed. Now, most of these are "diabetic" and take sugar into consideration, but not really carbs so much. For many of these, I'd play with the all purpose flour and use something else as well as adding some protein powder, but that is just me! These use sugar subs instead of sugar... There are also several pumpkin recipes in my blog.

The whole list is over 900 recipes for low sugar/diabetic desserts. You can look at what's offered there at
