Valentine’s Day may be one of the most tempting holidays on the calendar. No matter where you go, you’re bombarded by treats trying to reel you in – chocolates, cookies, truffles, and everything in between.
Whether you’re celebrating with your loved one or just celebrating yourself (which you should!), we thought we’d round up some of our favorite sweet Paleo treats.
Don’t use the holiday as an excuse to veer off path. There are so many delicious Paleo noms that won’t throw you into a sugar coma or leave you clutching your stomach afterwards. And while we don’t advocate eating these sweet treats every day (even if they’re Paleo), we think these recipes make the perfect indulgence on a day that celebrates love.
Show how much you care by whipping up something that nourishes from the inside out.

Valentine’s Day Treats
These cookies couldn’t be easier. They’re packed full of healthy fats thanks to almond butter, coconut, and flax seed and when combined with dark chocolate (aim for at least 60% dark), they really hit the spot.
If brownies don’t say “I love you” then I don’t know what does. These go above and beyond anything you would ever find in a box. With a 1-2 punch of dark chocolate chips and 100% cocoa powder, you get a powerful dose of antioxidants that helps keep your body happy and healthy. Spread the love and share these brownies with the special ones in your life.
If you’ve ever had to hold yourself back from diving head first into a tub of cookie dough (is this just me?), this is the recipe for you…or the cookie dough lover in your life. Gluten-free, egg-free cookie dough is smothered in dark chocolate for the ultimate treat. Place these truffles in a cute glass jar with a bow on top for the perfect gift.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about chocolate. This sophisticated spin on a favorite fruit is a luxurious end to a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner. Grilling the peaches caramelizes the natural sugars. Spicy cardamom whipped with creamy coconut really rounds out the flavors for this dessert.
Forgo the chocolates in the heart-shaped box and make your own instead. Pistachios and almonds give these bite-sized treat a healthy crunch while the dark chocolate and maple syrup combination lends just a touch of sweetness. Share these with your partner, your neighbors, or your co-workers. They’re guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser!
No matter which one you choose, these treats are sure to satisfy. Do you have a favorite recipe that’s not on the list? Let us know!
