Healthier Valentine's Day Recipes

Want to surprise your significant other with a little breakfast in bed on Valentine’s Day? How about a heart egg in toast. I couldn't resist when I saw this. Perfect for the upcoming holiday. heart egg   Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out a piece of the toast. Do the same with your fried egg and then place the egg inside the toast. Easy! Picture courtesy of: However, my Valentine’s day wouldn’t be complete without some chocolate. I have forbidden my husband from buying me a box of chocolates because I can polish one of those off in a few hours. Even with Lisa’s crazy HIIT Max workouts, it would take me too long to burn it all off. I’ve always been on the lookout for healthier recipes that include chocolate that are not such a pain to make. I found Molten Lava Cake. I’ve made this recipe several times myself with a couple of modifications and let me tell you – it is DELICIOUS! If you are a chocolate lover, look no further! This variation is chocolate peanut butter.
  • 4 oz Semi-Sweet or Bittersweet chocolate (I use Lindt 72%)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 tsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp Cacao Powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375F.  Grease four 6oz ramekins with coconut oil (I do not have ramekins, so I used a muffin tin and it worked just fine). In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate, coconut oil in the microwave on low power.  Be careful not to burn! It is easy to do. Stir in peanut butter as well until smooth and then let cool. In another bowl, beat eggs, vanilla, salt and Truvia with a hand mixer until light and frothy, about five FULL minutes. Pour egg mixture over chocolate.  Sift cocoa and then coconut flour.  Gently mix all the ingredients together. Pour batter into prepared ramekins (or muffin tin, they should be filled to within ½” of the top).  Bake for 10-12 minutes. ramekins Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy! These are gooey in the middle and melt in your mouth. Add some cut up strawberries, raspberries or cherries on top for the added red color of love for Valentine’s day.
