With Valentine’s Day just a couple days away, I’ve got sweets on my mind.

Doesn’t it seem appropriate that it’s Fat Tuesday, as well?

If you’re planning to prepare some delicious treats for the loved ones in your life this week, perhaps one of the following recipes will help. They all feature healthier, all-natural ingredients without sacrificing taste or texture!

Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

This rich, creamy cake is the new favorite in our house. Austin and I polished off the whole pan last week, so I’ll be making another one tomorrow!

Coconut Truffles

These sweet coconut confections would make an adorable homemade gift box! Be sure to make a large batch– they’ll disappear quickly.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Raspberry Almond Bars

Healthier Flourless Chocolate Cake

Cherry Chocolate Pudding

A light, but sinfully delicious chocolate pudding! You’ll fool anyone with this avocado-based dessert, thanks to the addition of tart cherries and rich cocoa powder.

However you celebrate this week, I hope it’s delicious!

  3. I just found your blog the other day and have been so thankful for it! I am on a anti-yeast (candida) diet for the next 90 days. Many of your recipes can be used for that diet or with slight mods! It took my really grumpy and gloomy outlook and turned it to be excited to try some new things! Thanks for sharing!
