Raspberry Tart Cupid Cups

DSC_1009BLOG

Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with the one you love or celebrating self-love, these healthy, delicious, and guilt-free treats that will leave your sweet-tooth satisfied! Heck, you can even eat the whole batch and feel amazing about it!  Who needs a box of refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and saturated fats when you can devour these gooey finger foods?  These treats are nut-free, practically fat-free (1.3grams per tart), and only have six ingredients. They are super easy to make too!  The mulberries also give it the base a nice crispy crunch!  For those of you not familiar with mulberries, they are excellent source of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, Iron, and protein and are known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.  I really had a really hard time not eating these as I made them, So YUM!
