Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means it’s time to find the perfect sweet treats for the entire family to enjoy!

We’ve found some healthy Valentine’s Day treats for you to try out this year that every member of the family will fall in love with.
Kick off your family’s Valentine’s Day with the most important meal of the day! This recipe packs in the delicious taste of pancakes with the health benefits of banana, oats and Greek yogurt. Not only will your kids love eating these pancakes, but they’ll also enjoy helping you make them. Add in strawberries or blueberries for an extra serving of fruit.
Six ingredients with no added sugar? It sounds too good to be true! This heartfelt treat uses dark chocolate, raspberries and almonds to deliver a winning combination of sweet and salty. You can substitute almonds for peanuts or pecans depending on your preference or leave them out all together for those that may have nut allergies.
