Our Favorite Healthy Valentine's Day Desserts

The Perfect Sugar Cookie

Sugar cookies are some of the most popular Valentine's Day desserts.

Many of us can remember our moms baking them for us or passing them to an elementary school crush.

Topped with sugar-free sprinkles, you can get as creative you want with this sweet treat.

Our favorite sugar cookie is only 41 calories per cookie, with only two tablespoons of butter.

The Natural Testosterone Booster Guys 40+ Are Using For More Energy, Drive, & Results

After age 30, your Testosterone levels start declining. Add in some stress and a “less than perfect” diet… everything gets worse fast. You feel tired all the time. It’s hard to lose fat. It feels like you lost your edge. That’s the sad story that happens to most guys 40+. But now, it doesn’t have to be that way for you….

Delicious Chocolate Caramel Bark

This chocolate caramel bark has a surprising ingredient: quinoa!

For all chocolate lovers out there, this is a unique way to celebrate Valentine's Day.

This chocolate caramel bark only takes 20 minutes to prepare, with no baking needed.

The first layer of the bark is melted caramel (mmmm) with a top layer of melted chocolate (double mmmm).

Mixing in the quinoa to the chocolate layer and sprinkling sea salt on top adds a surprising nutty and then savory element to this healthy Valentine's Day dessert.

At 121 calories, you can enjoy a decadent dessert without the guilt.

Brownies with a Secret Ingredient

Here we go with another secret, healthy ingredient.

These brownies have kale in them!

Before you turn your nose up to the kale trend, you should know that these brownies are rich and don't actually taste like they have greens in them.

The only kale giveaway is the small green flecks in the treat.

Between the kale, stevia substitute for sugar, coconut flour substitute for flour, these kale brownies come in at a cool 109 calories.

You can do a little happy dance knowing that the 109 calories include the delicious chocolate frosting!
