And VOLIA! A healthier peanut butter cup-like snack.

To make it even easier, you most likely already have all of these ingredients lying around in the pantry when your sweet tooth hits!

We have to admit rice cakes kinda fell off our radar, but now they're going to become a regular treat around here with this recipe. When paired with our Joolies medjool dates, it adds an additional caramel layer with an extra nutritional boost. Our dates add fiber, potassium, vitamin B and more, in this delicious vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free treat!
 

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Pitted Medjool Dates
      • We love using our pitted option for these, but whole work just as well! Just be sure to remove the pit😉If you're running low on your stock of dates, you can buy some in bulk right here or in our 2 pack right here!
    2. Rice Cakes
      • This nut is a key player in turtles! We opted for a raw pecan half, but roasted works as well.
    3. Peanut Butter
      • Adding this healthy fat makes this a satisfying snack, keeping you full longer. Feel free to swap out for your favorite nut or seed butter!
    4. Dark Chocolate
      • The smooth and delicious topping that binds everything together. If your chocolate isn't melting well, add in a bit of coconut oil to help *smoothen* the process. We recommend using a dark chocolate without fillers or artificial sweeteners. We love  Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsels and Hu dark chocolate gems 🍫
    5. Flakey Sea Salt
      • This little addition takes things up a notch. Totally optional, but highly recommended😎
