  • Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Not in the mood for chocolate? Try out these Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. They have all the taste of your favorite cookies in cupcake form, and are topped with a buttercream frosting for extra sweetness. They’re made low carb with coconut and almond flours, and use egg whites in place of shell eggs for added health benefits.


  • Vanilla-Bean Biscotti

These Vanilla-Bean Biscotti are perfect for gift-giving if you’re baking for friends and family this Valentine’s Day. This recipe uses soy flour and sugar substitute to stay low carb, but the biscotti taste like you bought them from your local coffee shop. Enjoy these with a mug of Mexican Hot Chocolate to warm up on chilly February days.


  • Chocolate Mint Mousse

No-bake Chocolate Mint Mousse is ideal for anyone looking for last-minute Valentine’s Day desserts; this recipe calls for just three ingredients that you probably already have on hand and is ready in just over half an hour!
