If you haven't noticed by now, we are pretty obsessed with stuffed dates...but I mean who can really blame us?! The possibilities are ENDLESS😱There's the classic peanut butter and chocolate, savory combos like bacon wrapped stuffed dates, or more unique ones like cookie dough stuffed dates! Is there anything you can't stuff a date with?! We don't think so!
Our latest favorite is Stokes Purple® sweet potato stuffed dates (say that 5x fast🤪). And yes, you read that right...sweet potatoes🍠 But not your average orange one, these are a gorgeous purple! Frieda's Stokes Purple® have an earthy, yet sweet flavor and contain a high level of antioxidants and are also an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber!
Now we can't forget to mention the *essential* toppings we have going on here! The Lark Ellen Farm vegan & paleo granola just gives you the perfect little crunch. We love using the Cacao Cherry or Vanilla Cinnamon for this recipe! Then we just had to add a drizzle of our Joolies date syrup to bring it all together.
What all goes into this fun sweet snack? Here are the main ingredients you need:
- Joolies Dates
- You can't stuff a date without a date! We love using our pitted option for these, but whole work just as well! Just be sure to remove the pit😉
- Frieda's Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato
- You'll need to bake these beforehand (see instructions below). We don't recommend substituting this for a different sweet potato because stokes have a distinct, delicious flavor!
- Pecan Butter
- Adding a healthy fat into this sweet snack will help keep you fueled and full longer. We love Georgia Grinders Pecan Butter but you can substitute any nut/seed butter you have on hand.
- Joolies Dates
