Paleo Valentine’s Day Recipes

Here are my favorite Paleo Valentine's Day recipes. I'm not much of a romantic, so I must confess that Valentine's Day is not my favorite holiday, however, there is an upside, and that is chocolate.

Low-Carb Valentine's Day Recipes

These gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo recipes are full of healthy ingredients such as coconut flour, almond flour, coconut oil, and dark chocolate. So give your loved ones some healthy paleo desserts, and save them from the high-carb hangover of traditional Valentine's Day candy. If you're on a hardcore low-carb diet you'll love my Keto Brownies and Mint Chip Fat Bombs!

Paleo Vegan Recipes

Some of the recipes below use honey or other paleo sweeteners. While a few may offer the option of agave nectar, please note that it is not considered a paleo sweetener. I offer this for the numerous vegans that come to my site for paleo vegan recipes. Please be nice to the vegans, and don't yell at them about agave! I have an incredible Vegan Chocolate Cupcake recipe in my second book, Gluten-Free Cupcakes, that your vegan loved ones will absolutely adore!

Paleo Valentine's Day Recipes

You'll notice there are quite a few brownie recipes below. That's because my darling husband is quite passionate about brownies and that is what I usually make him for Valentine's Day. My older son loves them too! My younger son is a big fan of my Paleo Sugar Cookies so I often make those for him during the year, and especially for Valentine's day! ❤️

Low-Carb Keto Recipes

If you're on a low-carb or keto diet, take a look at my Keto Diet Recipes page for more low-carb ideas!

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives, I first published it in 2013.

This is one of your most charitable gifts to your readers, in a very long line of generous offerings! Thank you Elana for your kindness!

  1. I LOVE your book gluten free cupcakes it gave me the confidence to try coconut flour and the results were outstanding! I wrote a review of your book on my blog http://kumquaty.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/gluten-free-cupcakes-by-elana-amsterdam/ the pictures in the book are gorgeous and I will be posting a recipe I modified from your book later on this week. I made my own carrot cake based on your vanilla cupcake and it came out great. I’m excited to find your other books and read them too. Thanks for the good work!

  2. Hi Elana!

    Happy Valentines Day – I just want to thank you so much for your blog and recipes. I share your blog with my clients all the time. You’ve also helped bring my baking passion back to life!

    Warmly,
    Cortney

  3. Dear Elana!

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your site and all your work on the recipes. I’ve made so many delicious treats that are far healthier than what my 13 year old son would get if I’d never found you.

    And I think I’ll do the brownies for V-Day, too!

  4. The chocolate chili truffles and peppermint patties are catching my attention. I love those flavour combinations! I’m making steak as well and marinated beets for a festive side -naturally pink :)

  5. hello there! for about a year now, I have been using Xylitol and Yacon syrup as sweetners for baking, hot chocolate etc. They are great as a lpw glycemic index alternative when honey is not tolerated by the metabolic X syndrome types who can’t do any high carb

  6. Ciao Paolo,

    Thanking you

  7. May I just thank you again for all your wonderful recipes and I cannot wait to order your newest cookbook. I own the other two and love them. You and so many others have given “the grateful” readers your time, effort, and recipes that make our foodie lives every bit as enjoyable and tasty as anyone could possibly offer. We want for nothing; you provide it all and in healthy, tasty abundance. There are so many more blogs and wonderful sites that support Paleo and Low Carb but I always come back to your kitchen. It is home and always will be. Please continue. We are here.

  8. I’m getting ready to do a paleo challenge here in the next few days and I’ve been trying swapping out sweeteners with date puree. Do you think this will work for most recipes? Or are there any other non-sugar sweeteners I can use (other than stevia)??
