Recipe description

This treat is a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with students, parents and teachers alike. Make them in bulk and use them as part of a Valentine’s Day special. Switch to squares or rectangles to serve year round.


  • Using different muffin pans – these still look really  cute in squares or rectangles, so don’t be disheartened if you don’t have heart shaped silicone.
  • If you don’t have raspberries, use strawberries (fresh or frozen).
  • Want it gluten free? Substitute the flour for gluten free options such as gluten-free oats flour.  The rolled oats can also be substituted for gluten free labelled oats if you don’t already have them in stock.
