These cherry-packed Black Forest Brownie Hearts make the perfect treat for a Valentine or a sweet treat any time! These brownies are paleo and vegan – perfect for anyone with food allergies!
Here is a Valentine’s Day-inspired variation of my Paleo brownies. I pressed the batter/dough into a heart-shaped mold to make these super cute.
These have a mild berry flavor, but if you are a cherry fanatic, try these tips for making the cherry flavor stronger (without adding artificial flavors):
- replace the milk with sweet cherry juice
- replace the applesauce with pureed fresh cherries
- replace the chocolate chips with chocolate covered dried cherries (chopped)
- Get creative and have fun!
If you try any of these variations, let me know how they turn out : )
