There is no better combination than chocolate and raspberries. For Valentines Day this year I thought I would pair them up in a fun roll-out cookie. I found these LOVE cutouts at a garage sale. They were new. I knew they would come in handy for something!

Here is a recipe for Homemade Chocolate (GAPS legal) if you want to keep it real simple!

Grain-Free Valentine Love Cookies

Ingredients for Cookies

Equipment

  • Parchment paper
  • Rolling Pin
  • LOVE cookie cutters, hearts or any other shapes

Instructions for Filling

  1. This filling was raspberry jam (which tastes awesome with chocolate)
  2. Use this recipe for raspberry jam or use some other jam you may have on hand

Instructions for Dough

  1. In a food processor mix the eggs
  2. Add the vanilla, stevia and honey and mix
  3. Add the coconut flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and mix together
  4. In the processor add the softened ghee in small chunks and process
  5. Remove from processor when it has formed a ball, divide in two and place on plastic warp in two disc shapes
  6. Refrigerate for 10 – 15 minutes to get it cold
  7. Roll out the dough ball between 2 sheets of wax or parchment paper – it helps to tape down the bottom sheet
  8. Using the cookie cutter, cut the letters our carefully
  9. Using a spatula, transfer the shapes to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  10. You may take all the scrapes left from cutting the circles, roll them into a ball and roll out this dough again
  11. If the dough is too soft, put it in the refrigerator for 5 – 10 minutes then roll out again
  12. Use other shaped cookie cutters for more fun
  13. Bake at 300 degrees F for 10 – 12 minutes
  14. Fill the cookies
  15. You may freeze the second disc if you do not want to make all the cookies at once

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes
Moderate  Difficulty   Yield:  35 – 40 cookies depending on size

I didn’t think stevia was GAPS-legal. Do you think it would be a bad idea to just leave it out? I think esp with the raspberry jam, the cookies would still be plenty sweet, right?

@ Megan,
I forgot that stevia is not GAPS legal — it is on SCD. Just leave it out and taste the batter — if not sweet enough for you add a little more honey.

These look awesome! I can’t have eggs, though. Do you think the chia egg replacement would work?
