Dates are the fruit of the palm tree and are rich in macro and micronutrients.

Dates are also delicious.

Most of the calories in dates are from carbohydrates and a small amount of protein. They contain antioxidants: flavonoids, carotenoids, and phenolic acid. 

These delicious dates also have the following minerals: potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron and vitamin B6. They are supportive for brain health, bone health, blood sugar control, can be used as a natural sweetener, great way to increase your fiber intake and promote spontaneous labor to start in late-term pregnant women. 

With that said, they also taste delicious on their own, or made into a tasty treat!

Below I will share my favorite “snickers” bar recipe made with dates:

Medjool Dates

Peanut Butter


Dark Chocolate

Pink Himalayan Salt

Cut open the date length wise and remove the seed. Next, stuff those dates with peanut butter and peanuts (for crunch!). Melt your chocolate in a double boil, then dip your peanut stuffed date in the chocolate. Sprinkle some pink salt on top and pop them in the freezer for the chocolate to re-harden and wha-la! you have a nutritious, delectable treat!
