Nut Butter Stuffed Dates

March, 2019

My new favourite dessert! These are heavenly! Stuffed dates are so easy to make I can't believe it took me this long to try them! I used medjool dates as they are big and juicy so fit more nut butter inside (which is the most important part).

Nut Butter Stuffed Dates

Makes 6

Ingredients

  • 6 Medjool dates

  • Up to 6 tsp peanut butter and/or almond butter

  • Up to 12 peanuts and/or roasted almonds (optional)

  • Dark chocolate (about 60g)

  • Desiccated coconut for decoration

Method

  1. Make an incision lengthways to remove the pit, repeat with remaining dates

  2. Spread a part slightly and fill with 1/2 - 1 tsp of either peanut butter or almond butter (I did half and half)

  3. Add 1-2 nuts to match the nut butter of choice (optional). I like this as it adds crunch

  4. Melt dark chocolate in a bowl

  5. Close the dates and roll them in melted chocolate then pop on a tray or plate covered with baking paper

  6. Sprinkle with desiccated coconut 

  7. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set

These will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and can also be stored and eaten straight out of the freezer
