This can be a tough time of year for a lot of reasons, never mind having to go through Valentine’s day on a special diet or struggling with sugar addiction. All those sweets and chocolate and decadent date-night desserts… it’s enough to drive you mad. My anniversary also happens to be around this time (this year is number 11!), so there’s a lot of pressure to come up with or go out for extra-special meals. But if you have food allergies or autoimmune disease, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a bust! These AIP Strawberry Brownie Parfaits are simple to make and wonderfully indulgent. Adapted from my popular AIP Chocolate Cake recipe, these brownies involve very little prep, cook fast, and make the perfect crumbled base for a bright, festive, strawberry parfait. Of course, you can use any fruit you like here–raspberries, bananas, and cherries would be particularly good. You can also use the Banana-Avocado Frosting from the original cake recipe instead of the coconut-based whipped cream if you want to.
