It’s Valentine’s Day, well almost, So I thought I would create a little vegan treat!

It’s been a while since I baked or prepared anything like this, I mean aside from the chocolate carrot cake I made for my sister a few weeks ago for her birthday but I’m going to say that that one doesn’t count. I haven’t experimented on sweets in a while, so I figured why not make something, right?

Am I the only one who automatically thinks of chocolate when I think of Valentine’s? My mind doesn’t even go into flowers, love, gifts or whatever, it just goes straight to chocolate. I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s day though just because we should express our feelings to those we love every single day! I don’t need a holiday to share the love I want to share to the world and you shouldn’t either! So my way of showing you guys how much I love YOU is by sharing this recipe with you!

I do have an advance warning though, this is quite addicting, so make sure to share it so you don’t end up eating the whole thing! (Although it is lower in fat than most desserts so you’ll be fine)

This recipe uses no oil, or salt to keep the fat and sodium nice and low.
