Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved ones or friends with these gluten free and dairy free Valentine’s Day treat recipes (or Galentine’s!). From truffles, to cakes, cookies, and everything in between, we have you covered for allergy friendly gifts and desserts.
Hey friends! I just realized this year that in the almost 12 years I have been blogging (yes, 12!) I haven’t yet created a roundup for Valentine’s Day recipes.
I created a roundup for chocolate recipes, and one for strawberry recipes, but didn’t have one yet for Valentine’s Day.
But we’re fixing that today and bringing you a roundup of over 50 amazing recipes that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, or Galentine’s Day, whichever you celebrate.
Every recipe here is gluten free and dairy free, with lots of options for nut free recipes, as well as recipes that are soy free, paleo, and vegan.
If you want to celebrate with friends but are avoiding alcohol, also check out our roundup of alcohol free spirits that make great options for alcohol free sips and cocktails!
