I welcome any opportunity to celebrate, and getting to celebrate the ones I love? Woo-hoo!
Even, I, though, get that if you're going to go all out for the heart-y holiday, some of your treats should be not too sugary.
For my sweet treats, I'll be making Rolling Pin Sugar Cookies and Strawberry Chocolate Chunk Mini Muffins. I might even make a candy or two!

To start the day off, though, I'll be cooking up this dessert for breakfast that's got some goodness to it. It's pretty, it's creamy, and it's sweetened only with dates and a little agave nectar. This might even edge out some of my old favorites!
I am a fan of rice puddings. In fact, one of my favorite recipes from Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen and Gluten-free Vegan Recipes is the Coconut Rice Pudding. It's naturally allergen-free, and it is so versatile.
We shared this recipe with Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays , Allergy Friendly Fridays , Wellness Weekend, Allergy-Friendly Lunchbox Love, and Allergy Free Wednesdays.

(Note: If you want a sauce with a thinner consistency, use more water; if you want it to be more like chunky fruit, use a little less.)
Happy Cooking! (and Happy Valentine's Day!)
