Perfect for the mid-afternoon slump, these bite-sized treats are reminiscent of the classic Snickers bar.
15x Medjool dates
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
1 tsp coconut oil
flaky sea salt – optional (I used Opito Bay Sea Salt)
Cut a slit in each date and remove the pit.
Fill each date with around ½ tsp peanut butter.
Place the chocolate and the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each. It shouldn’t take longer than 1–2 minutes total.
Dip each date into melted chocolate until completely covered then place on a tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with a little flaky salt. Set and store in the fridge ready for when you need a sweet pick me up.
