It’s that time of the year again! Valentine’s Day is here and we all want to surprise our loved ones with some beautiful, lovely treats.

But right because we love them, we don’t want to feed our partners with unhealthy, sugary treats…. right?!

Here is a delicious healthy recipe that’s free from gluten, dairy and sugar, but that’s full of flavor nonetheless!
