Feb 13, 2012 1 Comment by

We all want to make our significant other happy this Valentine’s Day. Why not bake something that is romantic and has an aphrodisiac quality to set the mood for an unforgettable night?

This Valentine’s Day tart has some ingredients that will delight the senses of everyone’s palate. First there’s chocolate. As we all know chocolate is every woman’s best friend. Did you know that this delicious treat is high in antioxidants that enhance sexual function? Then there are chicken eggs. This innocent breakfast staple is high in lecithin which promotes the secretion of sex hormones. Wow!

Not only does my simple recipe help set the mood but with gluten-free issues on the rise this gluten-free Valentine’s Day Tart can be enjoyed by many.
