Happy Valentine’s Day friends! How do you guys feel about Valentine’s Day? Should it be a day you celebrate or not? The guy and I were having this conversation one night when I was half asleep. My thoughts were it’s nice to have a “special” day to celebrate people who you love because it’s easy to go through the motions of the day and forget to tell them.
His thoughts? You should just do it all the time. You don’t need a designated day to celebrate. What do you guys think? We agreed we weren’t going to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day because our 1 year anniversary is 10 days from today and that was more important to us to celebrate than today.
Honestly, I’m good with that. I do not need ANY candy. We’re still doing the 14 day sugar craving challenge in my private Facebook group (it ends this weekend) so that would kind of defeat the purpose if I ate a bunch of candy. If you haven’t joined my private Facebook group, make sure you do! It’s a fun, small group!
Anyway I have a batch of these Raspberry Cacao Brownies waiting for me when it’s done. I kind of feel like a bad blogger posting a Valentine’s Day recipe on Valentine’s Day. Oh well! That’s what’s going here so you can take it or leave it, and I’m sure you guys aren’t going to want to leave this one.
They’re 67 calories. Yes! 67 calories guys! Rich in dark cacao and bursting with raspberry sweetness. Paleo, low carb, high in protein and tasty, tasty, tasty!
These will be going on a future Skinny Fitalicious Meal Plans. My meal plans are a great way to teach you how to incorporate desserts into your diet without going overboard.
The meal plans include recipes from Skinny Fitalicious as well as Skinny Fitalicious approved recipes. For those of you in the plan already, keep your eyes peeled for these goodies!

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease with olive oil.
Mix the eggs, oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract together in a bowl.
Add the flour, cacao, baking soda and salt to combine.
Next add the raspberries breaking them down into the batter with a spatula. Don't leave them whole in the batter as it will weight it down and be difficult to slice into and eat.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted in the center.
Remove from the oven and cool in the pan 10-15 minutes before slicing into 16 brownies.
While the brownies cool in the pan, make the sauce by placing the ingredients in a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water. Make sure the pot is large enough to sit on top of the pot.
Stir the ingredients together until smooth. Pour over the brownies and devour!
- The brownies are lightly sweetened as I am do not like things super sweet. You can add up to a 1/2 cup total of maple syrup if they are not sweet enough for you. This will alter the nutritional info.
- Nutritional info does not include raspberry chocolate sauce.
- My Amazon shop has more products similar to those used for this recipe and that I recommend to my nutrition clients.
