I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could assist you..
Oh boy. Someone posted a recipe for meringue cookies and the calories were super low. I'll see if I can find it. It was either in Lynns recipes or Christinas...
Here's a recipe I found.
Each cookie has 10 calories!! OMG!..
Here's another one. Can you tell I love chocolate?.
LOW CALORIE COCOA DELIGHTS COOKIES.
1/3 c. sunflower oil butter.
1/3 c. lowfat vanilla yogurt.
1/2 c. sugar.
1 tsp. vanilla.
2 c. flour, sifted.
2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa.
1/4 tsp. salt.
1 tsp. baking powder.
1 tsp. cinnamon.
1 egg white, lightly beaten.
Cream butter, yogurt, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Blend into butter mixture. Shape dough into ball and wrap in wax paper. Chill at least 2 hours..
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough slightly less than 1/4 inch thick. Cut. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Brush with egg white. Bake 15 minutes.
35 calories per cookie..
Here's lowfat brownies.
Thanks so much!.
And thanks for the recipes! I can always count on you to be on the boards, listening and willing to help - I appreciate that!.
I have made the meringue cookies before. They are ok but do not think I would take them to a cookie exchange but that is just me..
I am going to one on Dec. 17th so will need some too...
I remember you made them Birdie and didn't like them that much. Were they dry? I wonder if it's better with chocolate?..
I might try them anyway. For 10 calories! I could use a couple cookies some nights...
This isn't a cookie, but I really want to try this sometime. I love creampuffs and these fit the stats for a Dukan Diet dessert.
I think I would leave out the coffee and just use chocolate pudding...
My favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin (okay, with chocolate chips too). This recipe doesn't have the chocolate chips, but it looks reasonable..
Check the cookie recipes at the SparksPeople recipes - should be lower cal & lighter in fat & sugar than regular recipes - may not be really appropriate for Dukan Diet since I'd expect the protein will be low, but should do nicely for your purposes.
Here's a link to their "dessert" listing with cookies included there:.
No, I liked them. They tasted fine to me but there was nothing to them. Yes, they are kind of dry but tastey.
Great for us as a snack but for a cookie exchange, I would go with something else but just my opininion..
Birdie, did you look at that recipe? It calls for 1/4 c of cocoa and 1 tsp of chocolate cocoa. Are they different things?..
Thanks! I'll look through this and I might do one of these recipes. If the protein is low that really doesn't matter to me since I won't be eating most of them and I'm on maintenance anyway - just as long as the calorie intake isn't high I'm good. Thanks!..
I have a recipe somewhere for cookies using cake mix. They're really good and super moist cookies, not the crunchy kind of cookies..
I'll dig up the recipe. You can probably use it and replace with oil with applesauce like some people do. Maybe add some nuts for a healthy fat...
I am not sure Carol. I think it is the same thing. I just used cocoa in them...
This one a prize at Cooking Well Magazine (never heard of it).
1/4 cup unsalted butter.
1 cup sugar.
1 1/2 cups chopped pitted dates (8 ounces).
1/8 teaspoon salt.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
2 cups toasted rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies.
1 cup shredded coconut.
1. Combine butter, sugar and dates in a large saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted, the sugar is no longer white and the dates are mostly melted, 8 to 15 minutes. The mixture should be a shiny, brown sticky mass. Remove from the heat..
2. Add salt, vanilla, cereal and coconut; stir well to combine..
3. When cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled..

I use to make those some 40 years ago!! Wow that was a looooong time ago! They were really good. I have the splattered page somewhere in my huge pile of cookbooks and recipes. I never knew the calorie count. Thanks for posting it...
Which one did you make? I'm going to try one of them for a party I have to go to but I'm such a terrible baker it has to be a super easy one...
Thanks! I might just drop off the ingredients at my mother's and see if she'll make them. Otherwise I'll end up at the bakery 10 minutes before we have to be there...
Where's that recipe Mom? I guess I can't make them for a 7:00 meeting tonight huh?..
Now Jenn....I am not even going to begin to look through all those old recipes. Just looking would add inches to my hips! I'm sticking with 100 oreo calorie snack packs and maybe a little cream cheese between them. That is as far out as I am willing to venture right now..unless it is something from Christina's cookbook!!!..
