Gluten Free Dairy Free Valentine's Peanut Butter & Coconut Cookies

I know; I know; you're not meant to play with your food, but Valentine's Day is such a playful and romantic holiday, I couldn't resist! This year, I wanted to create something different and fun for Valentine's Day. I recently started having Tic Tac Toe wars with my 5 year old and while his strategic skills are still in development, it's been fun to be catapulted back to a childhood favourite. And like any cheeky 5 year old boy, my son loves to play with his food, so why not combine the two, right?!

Sweet heart shaped cookies are the epitome of a Valentine's Day treat but I've given the classic peanut butter cookie a delicious makeover! It's gluten free, made with almonds and coconut and suitable for those who can't handle dairy. Add in those fun shapes--hearts and O's--and you've got the perfect ingredients for an edible game of Tic Tac Toe!
