Are you doing anything to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year? While I don’t believe love should only be expressed one day a year, I totally buy into the idea of a holiday that revolves around chocolate! So here are 25 healthy chocolate recipes perfect for Valentine’s Day or every day:
Potluck Oreo Brownie Bars, from the Hello Breakfast ebook
PIES & CAKES
This gooey microwave chocolate mug cake is perfect if you’re single this year on Valentine’s Day… because you don’t have to share!

(From the Hello Breakfast ebook)
Since I run a chocolate-covered blog, pretty much any of the recipes would be fitting for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating the day alone or with someone else, it’s impossible to go wrong with chocolate!
Abby @ The Frosted Vegan says
Each and every one of these look absolutley amazing! My mister is a sucker for anything chocolate chocolate chocolate, so any of these look awesome!
I’m currently single so I’m planning on making the chocolate fudge brownies just for myself! Maybe if I feel nice I’ll share some with my roommate and her boyfriend but that’s it! 😉
I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day fan but I love the 15th when all the chocolate is on sale!
I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
This all looks so yummy!

I’ve got my eye on that chocolate mousse pie and the Greek yogurt cheesecake. I’ll probably be celebrating Valentine’s Day with my family. We’ll have a nice dinner and exchange cards/gifts. And, of course, there will be chocolate. 😉
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
You should just leave out something made with tofu (like chocolate mousse) without telling “S” and maybe he’ll eat it and like it without realize there’s tofu! Haha
Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies says
I love recipe round ups! Good thing it’s almost lunch time, because I’m so so so hungry now (eyes are on you, strawberry shortcake pancakes– why arent you in my lunch box!)
Sharon @ Bit of the Good Stuff says
These all look SO good!!! I think S should make you a dessert for a change. It’d be interesting to see what he would come up with 😉
I have no plans for Valentine’s Day. As I cook pretty much every day of the week, I’d love to be treated to a meal for a change. We’ll see what M pulls out the bag 😉
Hmm, I think my family and I will just be doing what we always do – have a quiet Valentines and just exchange a couple little gifts. I’m sure there will be chocolate (I sure bought some to give to them!). My mom or I might make the vegan chocolate cake (from an old DeliciousLiving Magazine that my mom has) that’s made with tofu . . . it’s absolutely, insanely good. The frosting’s made out of silken tofu and melted chocolate, but it literally tastes like fluffy mousse. *SWOON*

My hubby is returning from a missions trip on V Day. I have a ramonatic dinner and dessert planned, but I’m thinking a romatic breakfast might be fun, too! 🙂
Sarah Fit says
Was just sharing your Valentine’s Day recipe last night in an Udi’s gluten free twitter chat and used this link I think not knowing you included one of my recipes it in 🙂 haha!
My plans are: take a long van ride to our new temporary home, which happens to be a church parking lot, and have a Valentine’s party with post-it note valentines and your double chocolate brownie cookies. 🙂
Yummmyy! Chocolate will definitely be on my menu for sure, and the deep dish pan is a big family favorite! I’m currently a single lady (but hey, I’m only 16, I got time! lol) so I’ll be with my family to exchange cards and things. It sounds like you’re going to have a lovely romantic valentine’s day, Katie!
Francesca Hughes says
Oh my gosh these all look so good. I can’t believe I’ve given up chocolate for Lent :(. Going to dream about making all these once Lent’s over! xxx
Yum, all these look great!
I need to try out those chocolate fudge brownies, they look so decadent! Who says single ladies can’t celebrate with tons of gooey brownies;)
I’m sick so thinking we’ll be staying in this V-day. I do plan to make my hubby’s favorite lemon cookies…though these chocolate desserts look more up my alley 🙂
Cookie and Kate says
Can I have one of everything? Thank you so much for including my cherry chocolate cake, Katie!
Allison @ Life's a Bowl says
We always have Greek yogurt in our house and my hubby loves cheesecake- I’ll have to try it! Could you swap flavored Greek yogurt, like strawberry, into the recipe?
oh lord. i need someone to make me all of these.. a few of them are easy enough to send out to hubbs;) a brownie or the pancakes!
thank you for the pink lemon coconut chocolate bar shout out!
These all look so incredible, Katie! I don’t know how you do it. 🙂 Thank you so much for the mention!
P.S. I made your Peanut Butter Secret cookies the other night and they were incredible! 🙂
My husband is not a great fan of sweets but I would like to give him some kind of dessert after a great dinner. any help would be great right now. he is a Nepalese man. i love him with ever heartbeat off my heart this is my first valentine’s day with any one. Idea’s right now would be good. im so nervous…..
Amy C. Holmes says
What you have done Mindy is just an overwhelming gift. It would just be nice If what you get for valentines is from your sweetheart.
I think you should make your deep dish chocolate chip cookie pie for dessert….anyone who doesn’t like that one is seriously crazy
Ali @ Peaches and Football says
So many delicious looking recipes; so little time… They all do look fabulous Katie. No big Valentine’s Day plans, unless you count sitting in class for 3 hours! Maybe something more exciting next year! 🙂
Hubby and I started earlier in the week. We sent each other ecards every day. I got in my car one morning and he had placed a XOX heart on my rear view mirror and put a cute little red rubber duck covered in white hearts on my dashboard. He also surprised me one evening with homemade chocolate covered strawberries & pineapple. So yummy. We work opposite shifts, so one night I went to his work and put silicone heart stickers all over the inside of his car, left a strand of heart/i love you garland on his mirror along with a GIANT card. I also got him an engraved keychain and a few other cards. We don’t just celebrate one day a year. We do things all thru the year. But we make sure we do extra special things this day!!
So cute!!! 🙂
Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says

I think I will make something decadent today as yesturday was frozen pizza
Dang! I should have totally made the deep dish cookie pie for this evening!!! I totally forgot!! Bummer…I’ll just have to make it tomorrow 😉
Ha! I would love to see brussel sprouts served for dessert! (I actually love them!) lol
Happy valentines day! I featured an adaptation of your baked banana bread oatmeal (pretty much my all time fav breakfast) on my blog today! I hope you don’t mind! Maybe some of my readers (I have like 10 haha) will come check out some of your chocolate-y goodness! Much love!

Melissa Welsh says
Strawberry truffle pie is my favourite, I ate it on last Monday with my family members. My mom made it.
Anna @ Your Healthy Place says
It’s actually getting quite embarrassing when you do these roundup posts, because I realize I’ve already made most of your recipes lol. Ah well, can’t have too much of a good thing!
PS. This is still Anna! I just have a new site now so it’s not The Guiltless Life anymore…in case there was any confusion!
Bek @ Crave says
We are going out to dinner on Saturday night to a fancy restaurant and staying overnight in a hotel afterwards 🙂

We are having dinner this evening and I have been assigned to come up with the dessert! My mom is gluten intolerant and I know that she will just love it if make her those gluten-free chocolate lace cookies! It will be such an enjoyable time to make those for the whole family, thank you for sharing this awesome recipe!
I love you recipes!! They are so creative and fun. I found you on Pinterest but I would love to see you on YouTube~ I’m sure they would receive you happily!
You have some amazing recipes. I’m going to post some of these so my friends can benefit from them to. Thank you for creating them! 🙂
My wife is a complete chocoholic. She will love to have each one of them 🙂 . I have decided to start valentines day with red velvet pancakes..I think she will fall in love with the pancakes and of course fall in love with me again. Thanks for the great healthy valentines day desserts.
Indian bakers says
The healthy hot chocolate looks an absolute delight. I thinks its time to treat my MRS with some home made goodies on valentines day. A candle light dinner with hot chocolate as dessert sounds a good idea to me. Any ideas what should i have for dinner which is healthy?
What a timely piece now! Thank you so much for this fantastic post.
How did you find so many facts? I like how
you arrange everything, because it’s actually simple to read.
All in all, I will recommend this article to everyone who is
interested in that subject.
A nice recipe for gym freak couple
Perfect dessert for next Valentines day
