Dr. T's Dark Chocolate Stuffed Dates


This simple 3 to 4 ingredient recipe satisfies your sweet tooth AND also features one of my favorite stone fruits – DATES!


Here are a few fun facts about dates:

  • Dates contain about 23 calories in 1 serving (1 piece).

  • Dates are abundant in fiber. They contain a special soluble fiber called Beta-D-glucan. (Bonus fun fact: Consumption of foods containing Beta-D-glucan can improve seasonal allergies). Soluble fiber helps to regulate blood sugar, aids with bowel movements, and helps with feeling fuller longer.


  • Dates also improve the colonization of good gut bacteria which improves overall gut health.

  • Dates are high in potassium, which helps with regulating blood pressure.

  • Dates have been used to facilitate spontaneous labor. This magical fruit helps strengthen uterine muscles and promotes cervical dilation.


Ingredients

· 16 Medjool dates

· Creamy peanut butter or other nut/seed butter of your choice

· Dark Chocolate bar of your choice (can also use JoJo’s Bars - I get mine from Costco)

· Hemp seeds (my go to) or coconut flakes for topping (optional)


Instructions

Remove the pits of the date. Stuff each date with a 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter. Place half of a square of dark chocolate into center of date

Sprinkle with hemp seeds, coconut flakes, or enjoy as is!

Can place in the fridge to save for throughout the week!
