I’ll be honest… This post is as much for me as it is for you guys.
Valentines Day has certainly been turned into a Hallmark holiday over the years and while some people may be into getting a stuffed bear holding a heart or overpriced diamond jewelry, this chick is not. There’s nothing wrong with liking those things, obvi #nojudgement, but as minimalists, my man and I have to get creative when it comes to gift giving. Experiences, daily-use items, and consumables seem to be safe options.
Since he’s hopped on the low-carb train with me, I thought it would be a nice idea to make him a variety of delish sweet-treats for V-Day this year! I reached out to my awesome bloggy networks and rounded up 14 low carb Valentines day treats that you too can gift the low carb love of your life. Or, you know, make for yourself because you’re awesome and deserve it.
1. Bacon Roses
Okay, I know you’re probably thinking “didn’t she *JUST* say this was a list of sweet treats?” and yes, but guys… Bacon Roses?! These are amazing and had to land a spot on this list. Specifically #1 because they’re just so hella creative. I’m definitely making these for my guy and will be adding one of the actual sweets from the list below.
Anyways.. on to the actual sweets. Thanks for understanding my awe and amazement of bacon roses.
If you’re looking for something simple and straightforward, this is the way to go. You can’t go wrong with good old fashioned chocolate.
Finding a good chewy cookie recipe when avoiding carbs can be difficult but I’ve heard amazing things about this recipe.
The name may be confusing since Nutella is infamous for being mostly sugar but this blogger includes a link to her homemade low carb hazelnut spread that you make these with. Yes, you read that correctly. Low carb Nutella.
Proof it is possible to combine all your favorite things into one chewy masterpiece of awesomeness.
This is one of the first keto fudge recipes I tried and it truly lives up to its name.
Brought to you by yours truly! We make these regularly and is one of the best performing recipes on this blog.
Feeling extra and want to make an entire cake?
Want to kick it old school with the OG of the cookie world? Classic chocolate chip cookies.
Dairy free and dear to my heart.
I see these recommended regularly to people looking for the best low carb brownie recipe so the name is on point.
With many low carb chocolate recipes on the market now, these are probably the simplest dessert of them all. Just melt and dip. Lily’s Chocolate is very popular in the low carb community, but if you’re avoiding dairy you could use this sugar-free vegan chocolate and sweeten it yourself with stevia drops.
If you’re wondering why I included 2 dark chocolate truffle recipes, it’s important to note that these are salted and not powdered like the classic truffles listed above. This recipe uses organic milk chocolate but you can sub equal amounts of (you guessed it) Lily’s Chocolate Chips or any other of your favorite low carb brands.
Let me know which one you think looks best or you plan on making!
