Posted at 3:59 PM, Oct 19, 2016

Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t have dessert, even if you are on Weight Watchers. That’s right — there are plenty of low-point desserts, so go ahead and enjoy a sweet treat without the guilt. Here are some of our favorite recipes that satisfy every type of sweet craving, yet are still low in points.

Note: These point values were calculated by the recipe authors using the point system available at the time of publication. You may want to calculate your own points based on your personalized Weight Watchers point plan.

Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Chocolatey muffins perfect for fall? Yes, please.

These muffins are low in points because they use no oil or eggs. The muffins are easily made with boxed cake mix, pumpkin puree, and chocolate chips.

Peach Souffle

This peach souffle is made with egg whites and ginger, making it a light and diet-friendly treat.

You’ll need to fill individual ramekins with blended peaches, butter, sugar and the egg whites and ginger. Other fruits can be substituted as well.

Watermelon Cupcakes

These deliciously light “cupcakes” are made from sweet, fresh-cut watermelon topped with whipped cream and raspberries.

The creation of this low-cal treat is very easy. It simply requires cutting watermelon into 2- or 3-inch-thick slices. Shape them into cupcake-like circles, put them into liners, add toppings, and you’re done!

Peanut Butter Cool Whip Treat

You won’t even miss the Reese’s once you try these Cool Whip treats filled with chocolate and peanut butter.

Making this one is as simple as can be — you’ll just need to mix the peanut butter and Cool Whip together, then drizzle some Hershey’s chocolate syrup on it. Freeze until it’s hard and you’re ready to eat!

Banana Chocolate Oat Cookie

Bananas and oatmeal? Sure, they’re healthy, but add coconut, dark chocolate, vanilla, almonds and cinnamon — in cookie form, no less — and you’ll forget that they’re anything but delicious.

This one’s a bit more work-intensive than some, as it requires processing the almonds into meal, combining wet and dry ingredients, folding in chocolate chips, and baking. But yum!

Skinny Apple Pie

You won’t miss the crust in this skinny apple pie packed with that signature cinnamon-sugar flavor.

You simply need Gala apples, cinnamon, sugar and some whipped cream or low-fat ice cream to top it.

Believe it or not, you can make a low-point cheesecake if you use plain Greek yogurt, pudding pix, Splenda and vanilla extract.

This recipe requires the use of a springform pan. Simply pour the batter made from these ingredients into the pan and bake it. You’ll want to make sure it’s chilled before you bite into it.
