Superfood Fudgy Hearts for Valentine’s Day (Vegan & Paleo)

Superfood Fudgy Hearts for Valentine's Day! (Vegan and Paleo)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ve got a yummy treat that I whipped up for Valentine’s Day this year and I wanted to share with you! It seems like all my recipes are some form of chocolate but it is Valentine’s Day so I kinda had to make this one chocolate, right? The good thing about this recipe is that it is full of superfoods, antioxidants and healthy fats so you don’t need to feel guilty eating one or two or all of them. They are also simple and quick to make since you just throw everything in the food processor. Perfect!

I cut these into little hearts using a cookie cutter but you could totally cut them into squares, roll them into balls or use a silicon shape pan (like this) to make yours! OR put the whole thing into a big heart shaped pan (like this) and have one big heart shaped fudgy goodness to share with your family or lover! Or if you want to treat yo’self and eat the whole thing, I won’t judge.

Superfood Fudgy Hearts with Chocolate Ganache

Super chocolately and totally addictive, these little goodies are a must make!

Ingredients

Fudgy Base Layer

2 cups raw walnuts (you can also use soaked and dried)

2 cups soft medjool dates pitted

3/4 cup coconut oil

3/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 cup shredded coconut

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to your food processor and process until well mixed. You want the dough to be sticky and almost smooth.
  2. Cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper.
  3. Add all your dough to your dish and press down until packed and smooth.
  4. Put in the freezer to set while you make the ganache.

Ganache Layer

Ingredients

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I used this because it’s the best!)

3 tbs coconut cream (from the top of a chilled can of full fat coconut milk)

2-3 tbs raw honey

Desired toppings

Directions:

  1. Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or glass bowl over pot of boiling water.
  2. Remove from heat and add other ingredients.
  3. Mix until smooth.
  4. Remove base layer from freezer and pour ganache over top spreading out evenly.
  5. Sprinkle with desired toppings. (I used walnuts, shredded coconut and goji berries for their pink colour)
  6. Place in fridge until set.
  7. Cut into desired shapes and enjoy!
  8. Store in an air tight container in the fridge or freezer.
