We picked four of the most mom-of-the-year-worthy, free-of-processed-sugar, gluten-free and easy-to-make treats for that classroom Valentine’s Day party coming up that won’t take you away from QT with the fam (or if we’re being real, all the other things you have to do around the house) with 20 minutes or less of prep time!

The honey in these homemade treats tastes great. PLUS, honey will help naturally avoid the classroom party sugar high teachers around the world will appreciate.
