Default Cookie (Low Calorie) Suggestions Needed (PLEASE HELP ME)

Can anyone please, please, please suggest any low calorie cookies (snacks) that I can buy? I love the Kashi cookies but 1 cookie is 130 calories and that calorie count is too high. My daily calorie intake is 1500 calories. I desperately need ideas (cookies) that you all have eaten or currently eat and would suggest to others. I appreciate any suggestions.

I really like the Fiber One brownies or the Nature Valley Granola Thins. They're both only 90 calories and they have just enough chocolately taste to curb that craving. Also, the Granola Thins are crunchy like a cookie can be too!

Do you bake? Have you checked Cooking Light for ideas? A lot of their cookies are great - I make them on the small side for my family (my six year old likes two cookies, even if they are really the same size as one regular cookie). I'm also a little more protective of things I've baked - I'm not going to binge on something I put a lot of time into, I want them to last!

Also, to add onto 98DaysofSummer's post, you can also make cookie dough, scoop it out into portions, and freeze it, then bake 1 or 2 cookies when you want them. Then you don't have a huge batch of cookies there to tempt you!

I like the 100 calorie pack cookies. There are a variety of flavors, but the Oreo and Chips Ahoy thin crisps suck so I would avoid those. Snackwells makes a few drizzled with chocolate that are 120 instead of 100 I think. I just picked up 100 calorie pack Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies from Trader Joe's that I'm really digging right now too.

I like Nonni Decadence chocolate biscotti for 100 calories. The chocolate taste is terrific and the crunchy texture is quite enjoyable. They are individually wrapped and rather pricey which discourages me from having more than one.

Thumbs up

Chele615, I love the Fiber One and Nature Valley products. I will try those. Thanks for the suggestion.

98DaysOfSummer, I really don't bake but I am open to anything that will help me make it through this rough time. I will check Cooking Light for ideas. Thanks.

mandalinn82, I really love the idea of making cookie dough and freezing and scooping out a couple of cookies. That is an awesome idea!

Michi702, I love the 100 calorie snacks. Very convenient.

TERAPET, chocolate biscotti is to die for. YUMMY!

I think I will have a great time trying out all of the ideas. My snacking is what causes me trouble.

Thanks everyone for all of your suggestions. This helps me a lot.

I love the Oreo Thin Crisps, 100 cal. packs. Also the Fiber One brownies.

I also enjoy these...

I find them in the cookie section of Wal Mart or my local grocery store.
