Valentine’s Day is less than a week away so get ready for heart-shaped everything, and food is no exception! We have 10 sizes of heart-shaped cookie cutters, so we get a little heart-shaped crazy around here, with heart-shaped french toast, heart-shaped bananas, heart-shaped sandwiches, and of course heart-shaped brownies! Hey, some moms do DIY crafts, I do DIY foods. This is a fun an simple one for the kids to join in on. You can really use any brownie recipe you’d like, cut in heart-shaped and decorate away.
I decided to go a little light this year and adapted a Healthy Valentines Day Heart Brownies recipe that uses greek yogurt, oat flour and coconut oil. I love the healthy swaps from traditional brownie ingredients, and the taste was still rich, chocolately and fudgy!
