Salted n' Stuffed Medjool Dates



Juicy medjool dates stuffed with nut butter and chopped flecks of dark chocolate, with a hefty pinch of flaked sea salt. No cooking or baking or even involved..! One of my favourite snacks, especially if I'm travelling and hiking. If I'm at home, I keep them in the fridge or freezer for a hard toffee stick-my-teeth-together texture

Good to know:


  • Store ready-to-go in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week

  • Can be frozen (without the chocolate and salt topping) for a hard toffee texture

  • Make sure they're medjool dates as they are much larger, juicer and plumper than regular dates. They can be more expensive, I buy mine in bulk from Aldi
