What are good treats to share with coworkers?

Colleagues often bring in homemade cookies, candies, muffins etc to share at work. I'd like to share something too, but I would like it to be healthy. Do you have any good alternatives to those kinds of sweets? Store-bought fruit somehow doesn't seem very special.

Yum! We have only done them stuffed with feta cheese and grilled- that is good too, but yours are a step above!

I like dried cranberries, almonds, a little bit of dried pineapple to offset the tartnes of the cranberries. Always a good mix at a party.

This takes some prep work but it will knock their socks off. Bacon wrapped, cream cheese and sausage filled Jalepenos.

Buy the largest fresh Jalepenos you can find, slice them in half vertically and de-seed. Fill each half with cream cheese and then use two halves to encase a little smokie sausage (you can find decent ones at whole foods). Wrap the reassembled pepper with uncooked bacon and stick a tooth pick through it. You can bake these at about 350 degrees, but I prefer to do them on the grill. Cook them until the bacon looks done.

People go absolutely nuts over them. Dang it, now I am hungry again.

Little egg muffins can be lovely and you can fill them with the fanciest ingredients.

Little mushroom, chives, cooked sweet potato, pancetta in eggs beaten with a little cream if you do dairy, baked in silicone muffin cover

Really good wild smoked salmon and artisan cream cheese sprinkled with chives rolled up and held with toothpicks is easy and impressive.

I have the same problem, and soon (from September) will be even more careful about it. They mostly bring home made cakes, cookies and similar. So when I am thinking "treats" it's rather a sweet, dessert kind of a thing.

I brought once home-made coconut cookies. Almost all pure coconut, much better than from a store, b/c not as sickening sweet. I shared with my students and they liked it :)

some mixed fruit, nut, coconut, pure chocolate mixtures/bars/balls might be good as well.

The sweet/ spicy trail mix by Cosmopolitan Primal Girl ALWAYS gets two thumbs up from my coworkers. That is, when I decide to share.

Bacon.

Seriously, all of my co-workers are jealous when I cook up some bacon in the microwave by our cubicles.

Try the Caveman Cookies from Son of Grok - like mini carrot cakes. http://www.sonofgrok.com/2009/02/recipe-carrot-cake-caveman-cookies/

You could even make a cream cheese frosting to spread on top if you're OK with dairy.

PS - His Old World Waffles are really good too.
