The 6 Vegan Valentine’s Desserts We Can’t Stop Baking

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than spending time in the kitchen with your loved ones? Baking and cooking together is a fun and inexpensive way to spend some quality time, whether it’s with family, friends, or your special someone! Luckily, we rounded-up these 6 vegan Valentine’s desserts just in time for you to add them to your plans. And of course, all of these recipes are teff compatible—so you can treat your sweet tooth while still reaping those health benefits.

Baking with Teff

A general rule of thumb when working with teff flour is to substitute ¼ of the flour called for in any baking recipe (gluten-free or not). Not only does it add a significant amount of nutritional value, but it makes for a light, tender, and flavorful contribution to anything from breads and cakes to cookies and waffles! For more about cooking and baking with teff, read our cooking and baking info guide.

Vegan Valentine’s Dessert #1: Mocha Teff Breakfast Pudding

This high fiber, high protein recipe is a great way to start a fun Valentine’s Day! Courtesy of Craving Something Healthy, this breakfast pudding is a quick, chocolatey way to give your body some self love in the morning. With a kick of espresso and a red pop of colour with the help of some raspberries, this pudding is part of our morning routine even after Valentine’s Day. Head on over to their blog for the full recipe!

Vegan Valentine’s Dessert #2: Caramel Apple Teff Pancakes

Who said healthy eating can’t be sweet! This recipe from Healthy Slow Cooking caught our eye with its homemade date caramel syrup recipe on the side. These pancakes are perfect to treat someone you love with breakfast in bed (or dinner in bed, we’re not judging), and they’ll thank you for the added health kick. Plus, you can also use date caramel syrup in your tea or coffee, over your cereal or oatmeal, and mix it in ice cream—now that’s a vegan Valentine’s dessert with versatility!
