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,desserts?categ=155%2C87&ls=d

chocolate wafers (to crumble for cheesecake crust)

chewy coconut bars

diabetic carrot cake w/ cream cheese icing

easy fruit cobbler

pumpkin cream cheese squares

low-carb frosted pumpkin bars

low-sugar peanut butter cake

healthy chocolate nut squares (have some sugar that could be converted to Splenda)

Splenda angel food cake

absolutely sugar free frosting

low carb peanut butter pie (I like the sound of the crust on this one...)

low carb strawberry cobbler

low sugar coconut cream pie


Splenda blend sour cream pound cake

pumpkin roll (on Equal site, but could use Splenda)

Maybe those will get you started thinking??? There are some there that look pretty good!
