Almond Joy Stuffed medjool Dates

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Organic Medjool Dates
      • You can't stuff a date without a date! Whether you're team pitted or whole, both work equally as delicious and still give you all the amazing benefits of dates
    2. Shredded Coconut
      • We used unsweetened here, but if you want a sweeter bar go for the sweetened. Flaked also works great. Bob's Red Mill is a great choice.
    3. Coconut Butter
      • This helps create that creaminess in the filling like a classic almond joy has while adding more coconut flavor. You can substitute with coconut cream, but we recommend mixing in some coconut oil to match the same texture as coconut butter.
    4. Almonds
      • Quite possibly the most essential part of an almond joy! We recommend using roasted for the best flavor! 
    5. Dark Chocolate Chips
      • The smooth and delicious topping that wraps our medjool date in a warm chocolate blanket. We recommend using a dark chocolate without fillers or artificial sweeteners (it takes longer to melt and isn't great for your body either) like Hu Kitchen, or Enjoy Life Foods
    6. Coconut Oil
      • Adding a little bit of this into our melted chocolate helps keep it from drying out and thins it out to make it easier for dipping! Plus coconut oil has stellar health benefits, one being composed of healthy fatty acids called MCTs which promote brain function.
