I try my hardest to stay away from the sweet. If possible, I'd eat bacon for dessert pre/during/post meal.
Now, would candied bacon work for the sweet?
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound thinly sliced bacon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil, and position broiler rack on top of pan. Lightly coat the rack with the vegetable oil.
Combine the brown sugar and cayenne in a shallow dish, stirring to mix well. Press 1 side of each slice of bacon firmly into the spiced sugar to coat well. Arrange the slices of bacon on top of the broiler rack in a single layer, sugared-side up. If there is any sugar remaining in the dish, sprinkle it on top of the bacon slices evenly. Bake until the bacon is crisp and the sugar is bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, then to a plate or serving dish to cool. (Can be made several hours ahead) Serve warm or at room temperature.

Espresso Creme Brulee
Macros: Protein 44g/ Fat 0g/Carbs 29g/Calories 292 (Leangains friendly)
Before you start making the creme brulee, you will need to make “condensed milk”
1 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup splenda
In glass measuring cup stir together milk powder and water till it’s a paste. Cover and microwave on high for 45 seconds or until hot but not boiling. Stir in Splenda. Cover and store in fridge. Chill at least 2 hrs before using.
Keeps for 2 weeks.
Makes 4 ramekins
1 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon espresso powder (or instant coffee)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup egg substitute (Eggbeaters)
1/2 cup “condensed milk”
4 teaspoons sugar for the topping (needs to be real sugar in order for it to “brulee properly)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
With a food processor or blender, blend all the ingredients (except for the sugar) together. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins and place inside a roasting pan or deep baking dish. Fill pan or dish with water until it reaches halfway up the ramekins. Bake for about 25-30 min (keep checking around the 20 min mark) or until the it jiggles like jello (don’t overbake!).
Remove from dish and chill in fridge for at least 2 hours. When it is properly chilled and you are ready to eat, remove from fridge and let it warm up for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar on each of the four ramekins.
Using a torch, melt sugar until it has turned golden brown and hard on top. Serve and enjoy!
