Friends, I think every country needs to take Valentine’s day traditions from Japan.

One of my friends is currently on a 2+ year stint teaching English to school-aged children in Japan. Every week, she sends us a group email with everything she’s been up to, along with some of the more ‘different’ traditions or customs she’s faced. Along with these emails, I try to skype or Facetime with her regularly. As nice as emails are, there is only so much you write.

The other day, we were having one of our skype sessions and she was telling me about the infamous Japanese traditions around Valentine’s day.

For most of us, we’d associate giving candy, chocolate or a sprig of kale our special someone. If we’re being a little frisky here, there may be SEVERAL people you’d be gifting things do, come February 14th. For me some of us, it may just be another day of the year. 

Now, before you start assuming the Japanese population is completely promiscuous, think again- They are absolute geniuses.

In Japan, the love-centric holiday is featured twice, and NOBODY misses out.

On the 14th February, the female population gives the male population chocolate, candy, and homemade treats. This further delves into two categories- One is for their significant other, and one is often dubbed ‘obligation chocolate’. The obligation chocolate is given to their friends, office colleagues or other students. It is often understood if you receive the homemade kind, you are seen in more desirable light than receiving the store bought kind. 

Before you think this is all fine and dandy, except for the fact that it is SEXIST, thing again- Roles are reversed a month later!

On the 14th March, the male population has to return the favor, on an occasion dubbed as ‘White Day.’ For every person who gifted them chocolate (obligation or other), they have to give them chocolate back.

HOW GENIUS IS THAT?

Although I was given a ton of store bought chocolate, I would make the hashtag #foreveralone trend on all social media platforms. 

ANYWAY.

With Valentine’s day just under a month away, I’m already sorting out my friend list into obligation and temptation.

Just kidding.

It’s an excuse to whip out all things chocolate, puffy hearts, and your prominent single status. When I think of flavors which emulate love, I always think of the chocolate/raspberry pairing. The handful of Valentine’s day parties/events I’ve attended alone, I’ve always seen this duo prominent. From raspberry filled truffles to chocolate and raspberry bon-bons, this duo is prevalent. Outside of Valentine’s day, it’s one of my favorite combinations regardless. 

Long term readers know that I’m a huge fan of single serve desserts, especially when it comes in brownie form. When it comes to fruits, raspberries are also one of my favorites. What better way to embrace my solidarity than to marry these two together?

This healthy chocolate raspberry brownie is moist, gooey and bursting with raspberries and chocolate flavor! It’s ready in less than a minute, and comes with a tested oven option too! Unlike traditional brownies, this isn’t made up of butter, oil, flour and several types of sugar. Instead, it’s based around coconut flour, a lower carb and higher fiber grain-free flour. Instead of butter or oil, this fudgy brownie uses smooth almond butter (smooth peanut butter works well too!) and unsweetened applesauce. For those with nut allergies, you can easily replace it with sunflower seed butter, soy nut butter, or even wow butter. The final touches are some chocolate chips of choice (I prefer these dairy free ones, but to keep this sugar free, use these sugar free chips) and of course, the raspberries! 

Because of the ingredients used, this healthy chocolate raspberry brownie is naturally gluten free, paleo, sugar free, dairy free, grain free and vegan! For my vegan friends who don’t want to use the flax egg option (which can be a little bit trippy, depending on the brand of flax meal AND the amount of time you let the flax egg sit), you can simply increase the milk of choice by a tablespoon. It won’t hold up as well, but it will be super fudgy! 

HACK! While some may argue that fresh berries are superior to their frozen counterpart, this is the kind of recipe where frozen is key. As the pictures show, the thawed berries make the mug cake/brownie hybrid even gooey, which takes it to that next level!

Make this healthy one minute chocolate raspberry brownie and let’s get packing.

T minus 28 days until…JAPAN 😉

Ingredients

Instructions

Microwave option

  • Grease a microwave safe bowl or mug and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Add your wet ingredients, minus the raspberries and mix until a thick, smooth batter remains. If it's too thick, add an extra tablespoon of milk to compensate. Stir through your raspberries and top with the optional chocolate chips.
  • Microwave for 50 seconds-2 minutes, depending on your microwave. For an undercooked, gooey brownie, remove around the 50 second mark.

Oven option

  • Follow as above, but bake in a pre-heated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 10-12 minutes, or until just cooked in the centre.

Notes

* You may need more depending on the brand of coconut flour you use.
** You can omit the flax egg and increase the milk a tad- It won't be as fluffy, but more moist and gooey.

  1. Okay now I kinda want to move to Japan now…… haha just kidding! This mug cake is so gooey and fluffy that I just want to dive into it head first without a spoon. Who needs a bae when you’ve got this bae?

  2. Haha! What a great tradition over there in Japan! I don’t know about you…but I’m not gonna complain if someone gives me chocolate (homemade or storebought)…But then again, I’d have to return the favor the next month. So if no one gave me chocolate, then I wouldn’t have to give anyone else chocolate. That’s good logic, right? 🙂 Ah, forget it. I’m giving everyone I know one of these raspberry brownies this year!

  3. What would be the best alternative to coconut flour, I don’t keep that on hand… and would love to try this.

  4. As always, you knocked it out of the park with this raspberry brownie! I will take all the chocolate, as long as it is extra dark. The rest I pass around to family. 🙂

  5. That is an awesome tradition! I definitely wish we did that over here. I’m not what you’d call a “sappy” person, but I have to say that Valentine’s day is my absolute favorite! I use it as an excuse to love on everyone around me, not just Riley.

  6. This sounds absolutely delicious! I always love the combo of berries and chocolate. This will be my 28th Valentine’s Day, and I have never once celebrated it. In fact, my flight back to Paris is booked for Valentine’s Day… but I don’t think I’ll be taking it…. but that’s another story in itself!
