WASHINGTON, DC. - When you're craving something sweet, it can be downright impossible to ignore it, even if you’re committed to eating well. To find out how professional healthy eaters—a.k.a. nutritionists—handle their sweet tooth’s demands, we asked what they reach for when they need a little sugar. Below, find five of their favorite sweet snacks.

Bean “Cookie Dough”

Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough available at P.S. Snacks.

“P.S. Snacks is the best thing you can buy: beans made into edible cookie dough. You seriously will not believe there are beans in there (the black bean fudge brownie is my favorite!).” – Carlene Thomas, Healthfully Ever After

Dark Chocolate Hershey's Kisses

Hershey’s Kisses available on Amazon.

“Sometimes at night I look for a little chocolate. I will grab two to three dark chocolate Hershey’s Kisses because they are low in sugar and don’t trigger an intense desire for more. They’re also the perfect portion size!” – Danielle Omar, Food Confidence
