Chocolate-dunked and full of tart raspberries, these cookie dough hearts are the perfect no-bake valentines treat. Vegan, grain-free, and easy to make!


Classier than candy. More casual than truffles. Cuter than a cookie. Healthier than eating an entire red velvet cake. And easier to make than all of the above.

That, friends, is a list of some (but not all!) of the reasons you will love these Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookie Dough Hearts.

I personally love chocolate dipped berries––the simplest of all valentines desserts––but sometimes you want something a little more aggressively DESSERT, ya know? But baking a whole batch of cupcakes for your lover or yourself seems like a lot of effort when valentines is well…tomorrow. These little cookie dough hearts have all the desserty decadent energy of a baked treat but on the mix > chill > chocolate dip level of effort we love so much.

I typically make my no-bake cookie dough treats with coconut flour only, but this time we are amping up the goodness with a mix of almond and coconut flours. Added bonus: almond flour is naturally so sweet and moist you need just a very small amount of sweetener in this recipe. Added added bonus: low in sugar and no grains leaves lots of room for berries and dark chocolate!

I am using my favorite dark chocolate from Hu because it is hands down the best and should be in a category all it’s own. If you haven’t tried their Gems yet, perhaps gift yourself a bag for Valentine’s Day and prepare for your chocolate-loving life to be changed.

For the berries, I chose raspberries (but strawberries or blueberries work too) in freeze dried form. Freeze dried is easy to crush and fold into our cookie dough, plus the flavor is extra tart and delicious.

And I mean you don’t technically HAVE to dip them in more melted dark chocolate after you cut them into cute heart shapes. But you can. So my only question is: why would you not?

Happy valentines, loves ♡
