14 easy and healthy valentine’s day recipes

We love love and we love finding fun ways to show our favourite people how much we care about them. Our favourite way? To make a special treat, of course! But the problem with doing that for Valentine’s Day is the day is usually filled to the brim with sugary treats already. So to offset that, we’ve gathered 14 easy and healthy Valentine’s Day recipes for you to make for everyone you love. We have also included one sneaky treat: some tips on how to decorate fun Valentine’s Day Cookies. We couldn’t help ourselves! Most of these recipes can be made with kid-helpers, so you get what you truly want on February 14th: more time with the people you love the most. Grab your heart-shaped cookie cutters, throw on an apron and cook up some love!
