Ah Valentine's Day, the day of love, romance, human connection and...desserts! Instead of shocking your system with boxes of candy hearts, avoid the headaches, stomach aches and hormonal rollercoasters with one of our healthier Valentine's Day dessert recipes.
While we can't take credit for these amazing creations, we've certainly taste tested them all ;) Happy baking!
1. Vegan Chocolate Caramel Cake
I mean, does this even need an explanation. If you're going for the wow factor, this cruelty free cake is the way to go.
2. Greek Yogurt Strawberry Cheesecakes
Cheesecake is a notorious calorie bomb, 830 to be exact with a whopping 36g of fat (and that's just the plain slice...), but these creamy mini cakes are a mere 177 calories, and with 5g of protein you can have your cheesecake and eat it too.
3. Flourless Pumpkin Brownies
A classic with a healthy twist, it's hard to go wrong with these deliciously moist (sorry) brownies!
4. Pink Pancakes
For our fellow breakfast food lovers out there, whip up a stack of these pink pancakes naturally colored with beetroot. I mean look how freaking cute they are!
5. Red Velvet Donuts
Let's be honest, donuts are good ANY time of the day, and these refined sugar free beauties will make a great addition to any Valentine's Day dessert spread.
