Valentine’s Day Treats Without Refined Sugars

If you have a special place in your heart for sweet treats, especially around a holiday dedicated to giving out boxes of chocolates and baked goods for loved ones in heart-form, it can be hard to avoid refined sugars. We want to help make your Valentine’s Day as meaningful and as sweet as possible, without all of the added sugar. With the collection of sweets below, your valentine will fall in love all over again!

For Those Who Like to Keep it Simple

If you want to keep it simple this year, we have just the treat for you. Take our Brownie and Peanut Butter cookies and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out some festive shapes. If you want to add a little something extra to wow your love bug, we recommend dipping the cookies into some melted organic chocolate! We recommend Equal Exchange Fair Trade chocolate.

For the Fruit-Lover

We heard that these raspberry coconut paleo parfaits will cause you to fall head over heels with the sweetness from the berries and the creaminess of the coconut milk! And with some crumbled Ona chocolate bars on top, you have the most delicious v-day parfait out there.

For the Chocolate-Obsessed

For the ultimate chocolate lover’s dream, this dark chocolate pomegranate tart with a slight Ona twist has an Ona chocolate bar crust topped off with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds. Follow this recipe from MyRecipes for the filling, and for the crust, make our Ona chocolate bars as thin as possible by rolling them out with a rolling pin, and pushing it down into a pie tin!

For Those Who Like a Little Bit of Everything

Lastly, a delightful sweet treat is our Ona-inspired trifles with Ona brownie cookies layered in between whipped coconut cream and fresh berries. To make the whipped cream, we recommend this recipe from Petite Allergy Treats. All you have to do now is cut up our Ona brownie cookies and sprinkle them in, layering with berries and the whipped cream to form a beautiful Valentine’s Day trifle.

For all of you lovebirds out there, we encourage you to make one of these heart happy sweets that will send your Valentine right into your arms!
