I have to be very careful with any high carb food. Even the "best" whole grain ones can trigger hunger for me, but when I have an irresistable craving for cookies or other sweets I go for a bowl of cereal or oatmeal.
One of my favorite light desserts (or breakfasts) is a bowl of oatmeal with a scoop of no sugar added vanilla icecream. I used to use the flavored instant oatmeal packets, but I don't eat that much sugar anymore (though calorie wise, it still compared favorably to an actual cobbler with ice cream that it reminded me of). Even with the instant oatmeals, it's a little too filling to eat as a dessert after any but the smallest meals, but it really feels like you've had something decadent and ridiculously high in calories.
