3 Easy and Healthy Valentine’s Day Recipes


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and the best way to treat your loved ones is through food! My family especially loves desserts! If you’d like to make something delicious and healthy, here are three Valentine’s Day recipes that are easy to make with your kids. Pink, red, heart-shaped, and you won’t believe it…they’re healthy!

1. Pastry Tops with Coconut Cream and Strawberries

Valentine's Day recipes

These taste like the healthy version of cannoli: low sugar, full of fruit, and lots of healthy cream!


  • Pastry tops options: Puff Pastry (Regular or Gluten Free), Disco Pastry Dough (I used these), Filo Dough
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Sweetener of choice: monk fruit and coconut sugar are my favorite
  • Toppings: strawberries, raspberries, confectioner’s sugar, shredded coconut, mint leaves


  1. Place the pastry tops in the Air Fryer at 350F for 3-5 mins or until golden. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Mix the coconut cream, yogurt, vanilla, and sweetener to make the cream. Put in a pastry bag or Ziploc to decorate the pastry tops.
  3. Add toppings.

You can also replace the coconut cream with a mix of cream cheese, lemon zest, and honey.

2. Heart-Shaped Banana Bread

Valentine's Day recipes

These are my kid’s favorite and we make them all year long!

Step 1: Mix the following dry ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Step 2: Mix the wet ingredients

In a mixer or blender, blend the following ingredients, one by one, in the following order:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 to 3 Tbsp of coconut sugar (Depending on desired level of sweetness)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Mix well until the sugar dissolves in the oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 mashed overripe bananas

Mix everything until it has a creamy consistency.

Step 3: Mix dry and wet ingredients

Slowly pour the wet mix over dry mix, while mixing both. Let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 4: Make the chocolate marbled filling

Take 1 cup of the mix and add 1/4 cup of 70% cacao melted chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cacao powder. Mix well.

Step 5: Bake

Pre-heat the oven at 350F. Use heart-shaped silicone molds. Fill half of the mold with the “white” mix, then add a tablespoon of the chocolate mix. With the help of a toothpick create a zig zag to make the marbled effect. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick comes out “clean”.

3. Red Velvet Cupcakes

Valentine's Day recipes

This is one of the Valentine’s Day recipes we only prepare on this day, since we are not huge fans of using food coloring. I used just a teaspoon, which explains why they are not as red.


  • 3/4 cups oat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups almond milk
  • 3/4 cups olive oil
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cacao
  • 3 tbsp water
  • Sweetener of choice: stevia, monk fruit, coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Red food coloring


  1. Pre-heat oven to 320F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Then combine both.
  3. Pour batter in greased muffin tray (or silicone cups).
  4. Bake at 320F for 10 mins.
  5. Let cool before decorating with cream cheese frosting (made with cream cheese, stevia drops, and vanilla)

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day treat!
