Two for the Price of One Valentine’s Cookies!

I heart these cookies!

I know that is the lamest pun ever, but it’s still true so I thought I’d say it anyway.

If you can’t decide between your favourite treats this Valentine’s Day, why should you? Just go with both!

This is actually two entirely separate recipes, that can be made entirely separately, eaten separately etc. For the sake of presentation – and because these two flavours go AMAZINGLY well together – I put one heart inside another for the best value two-for-one you’ll see this Valentine’s Day!

Yup, peanut butter and chocolate heart cookies.

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free and raw peanut butter cookies!

Inside of the chocolate shortbread cookies I made for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap (I omitted the peppermint essence because peanut butter works better with plain chocolate in my mind, rather than mint chocolate ;).

You can make the raw peanut butter cookies into energy balls too – mmmm they are good this way!

With the healthy fats from coconut and peanut butter and a touch of sweetness from a little bit of maple syrup, these babies are a good-for-you treat!

You can also just eat the peanut butter cookies plain of course – who wouldn’t want to be greeted with a plate of these on Valentine’s Day (perfect for a Valentine’s Day party too and they’re super fast and easy to make!):

Raw Peanut Butter Cookies/Energy Balls


1/2 cup organic smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


1. Mix together the peanut butter and maple syrup.

2. Slowly stir in the coconut.

3. Mix together until you can form a dough, and then roll out and use a cookie cutter to cut out cookie shapes, or roll into balls. Refrigerate for a few hours to harden.

  1. How cute these are and how yummy they look too! I think the center would be the best part!

    Happy Monday girl! I am hoping your weekend was great! xo

  2. Mmm, these look delicious! So easy to make as well.

  3. Yum! Looks cookies look fabulous!!!

  4. These look amazing! And so cute and festive! My fiance is coming to visit me in a week, and he would love it if I made these!

    • Aww that’s awesome, let me know if he loves them! If you’re going to do the heart-in-a-heart style, the trick is to cut the heart out of the chocolate one as SOON as the cookies are out of the oven. Otherwise shortbread gets hard too fast and they’ll just break 😦

  5. Soooo simple yet so delicious…I’m in love!!! Dang, I need to learn how to replace maple syrup for stevia 😉 Then I can eat them!!


    • Ooh just mix the coconut and peanut butter together and then when it’s well combined, sprinkle in stevia to taste. The tasting will be the fun part! The maple syrup isn’t necessary as a ‘liquid’ component, so no worries about omitting!

  6. Yum! These look delish and cute.

  7. Gorgeous!! I love the simplicity in the peanut butter cookies, too ❤ What a perfect Valentine's Day treat!

  8. I LOVE this recipe because I always have those ingredients in my pantry! I’ll have to give this a try the next time I’m craving something sweet!!

  9. Oh my goodness I’m in love! ha I love nothing more than peanut butter and chocolate! These are so perfect! I cannot wait to try these out tomorrow! 🙂
    Thanks for the idea!!!

  10. chocolate and peanut butter….I’m in! Happy valentines day 🙂

  11. Hello delicious!! These are so adorable and look so so good! Peanut butter goes so well with chocolate. And I agree about the mint. 🙂 but I’m going to have to try that original chocolate mint recipe later on!

  12. Just catching up on posts from this weekend, but am in love with these adorable creations! Very nice work, Anna 😉 I vote you open up a V-Day “healthy” bakery!
