Somewhere between a tart and cake, it's a showy, very apple-y cake that isn't too heavy or too sweet. Makes a great dessert, snack, or even decadent breakfast.

These scones are moist, spiced, and slightly sweet, with a great overall texture. Good for breakfast, brunch, dessert, side, or even on the go. There are two optional glazes that are included in the ingredient list, with their added calories, etc at the bottom of the instructions. Makes 16 2oz scones.

The cake base is light and slightly spiced with a lot of sweet potato on top. Pecans, spices, a little maple syrup, and marshmallows fill out the flavor and add a lot to the presentation. Makes a nice change from the usual recipes for sweet potatoes.

They're filling, balanced, and will keep you going for hours, and you will not feel the need for much if any sweetening. I also like to add pecans to this recipe (1 cup, chopped), but figured not everyone would think the combination is worth the extra calories and fat...
Makes a dozen 5 to 6 inch pancakes. 2 pancakes per serving.

For cookies that are rich, chocolatey, and decadent-tasting, they seem very low-calorie when you're eating them. They're very like brownies, but you feel like you're eating a LOT more for the same calories. Makes about 105 2-2.5" cookies.
