Next Wednesday is Valentine’s Day, which means a lot of chocolate, sweets, and pink frosting. Searching for a healthy alternative to the sugar-packed desserts so typical this time of year? Here are a few of our favorite healthy(ish) Valentine’s Day dessert recipes to try:
Ultimate Flourless Brownies for Two, by Oh She Glows
Looking for a fudge-y, goo-y, and ultra chocolatey dessert that happens to be vegan? Try the Ultimate Flourless Brownies by Oh She Glows. The brownie recipe calls for almond butter, vegan dark chocolate chips, and maple syrup to satisfy your sweet tooth. And the Magic No-Cook Carmel with raw cashew butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup is absolutely divine. This is a fun recipe to make with your significant other on Valentine’s Day.
Paleo White Chocolate Strawberry Pistachio Biscotti, by Thriving On Paleo
While this is technically a dessert, we think it’s the perfect recipe for Valentine’s Day morning as it pairs so wonderfully with a hot cup of coffee! A paleo recipe, these Biscottis can also be made vegan if you opt out of using the egg white.
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Butternut Cream, by Oh She Glows
Another recipe from Oh She Glows, these vegan chocolate cupcakes with butternut cream are delicious. Creamy, warm, and perfect for sharing (bring a plate to work on Wednesday), this is a fail-proof recipe perfect for all the health-conscious couples.
No-Bake Chocolate-Topped Fudge Brownies, by Whole New Mom
We’re convinced Valentine’s Day isn’t complete without a healthy dose of chocolate. That’s why we love these no-bake fudge brownies from Whole New Mom. Raw walnuts add the perfect crunch in these low glycemic chocolate treats.
Raw Raspberry and White Chocolate Bark, by Unconventional Baker
Another white chocolate and fruit recipe for those of you who don’t like darker chocolates (why do tart berries pair so well with white chocolate?), this is one of those treats we imagine will be on the calendar for the entire week of Valentine’s Day—it’s that delicious.
