With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I started seeing my favorite treat displayed throughout the grocery store isles... Reese's hearts! There is something so delicious about all of their holiday chocolate and peanut butter treats... the hearts, eggs, pumpkins, and trees have always been a favorite of mine! A sweet chocolatey shell, with a creamy and savory center.
After a couple rounds of Whole30, and several months of eating a Paleo diet, I have found that certain foods work for me, and certain foods don't. Since I no longer indulge in many processed and sugar-filled candies, I started to think how i could re-create my favorite, as a healthier alternative.
These chocolate hearts are made of dark, dairy-free chocolate, almond butter, tapioca flour, coconut oil, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and coconut sugar. You can feel comfortable eating these, with such minimal ingredients. And if you decide to share, these would make a great treat for a significant other, friend, teacher, or even for your kids to take to their valentine class parties! (Peanut-free, so no worries about classmates with allergies!)
These are so easy and fun to make. Hope y'all enjoy as much as we did!
