It’s almost Valentine’s Day! It’s a time to recognize the one you love with some extra special attention and maybe even a little gift like flowers or candy.

Now, hopefully you are showering your spouse daily with the love and attention they deserve and not just waiting for this one itty-bitty day! It’s so important to tell the ones you love how much you appreciate them regularly, and show them not just through words, but through actions!

In my family, I don’t see this as a day where I should get a bunch of stuff. While I do love to get flowers to pretty up my home, I prefer to make this a family holiday. I cook a special dinner for the six of us, complete with homemade decorations and a delicious dessert that we all will enjoy.

This year we are cutting down on the amount of grains we eat, so I came up with individual grain-free chocolate lava cakes. It is a variation of something I have been making for years on our Family Valentine’s Day and it’s highly anticipated! To be honest, I like this grain-free version better than the one with regular flour!

This recipe may seem complicated but it is really very easy. The “specialty” ingredients can easily be found at a local health food store or online at Amazon. I promise, you will not be slaving in the kitchen, but it will seem like you have when you taste these little chocolate gems!
