  • 4 mejool dates
  • 2 - 3 tsp almond butter
  • 2 tsp unsweetened flaked coconut


  • Pit your dates by using a paring knife (or other small knife) to slice into the date, cutting towards the end of the date that has the stem.  While you are cutting through the date, use your knife to push the pit out of the end of the date. See video here
  • With your pit removed, carefully make the slit large enough so that you can use a small spoon to stuff your dates with the almond butter.
  • When you have added the almond butter to the dates, dip the exposed almond butter part into a small dish of shredded coconut.
  • Enjoy!


These stuffed dates can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator.  They are delicious both cold and at room temperature.
