Dried dates offer nutrients like fiber iron, potassium, B vitamins, copper, and magnesium, but they are sweet enough to taste like candy!


Dates - 8 pitted, dry dates Chocolate-chips - ¾ cup (use stevia-sweetened chocolate chips to reduce sugar, carb and calorie content). Nut-Butter - ¼ cup almond, peanut, sunbutter or wowbutter Nuts -2 Tablespoons peanuts, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios or other nuts (optional)


Step 1
Cut dates in half, lengthwise.
Step 2
Spread nut or seed butter on the top of each piece of date (there will be 16 pieces).
Step 3
Melt chocolate in the microwave: place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. If not melted, microwave another 30 seconds.
Step 4
Dip each nut-butter covered date in chocolate to coat. Place on a plate.
Step 5
Chop nuts, if using, and sprinkle them over the dates. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set (~2 hours), and enjoy!


*If you prefer to use a no-added-sugar chocolate chip, look for chocolate chips sweetened with Stevia.

Nutrition facts are calculated using Medjool dates (a type of date, larger than some other kinds), semi-sweet chocolate chips, and peanut butter.
