{These girls take their Valentine’s Day baking very, very seriously.}

My sister sent me a picture of my nieces baking Valentine’s Day treats, which prompted me to set out to find some recipes that I could make that would be paleo and/or gluten-free friendly. These treats look easy enough to make and package to give away to those special people in your life, or treat yourself. Enjoy and let me know if you make any of these! I’d love to know how they turned out.
