Date Candy (vegan | gluten-free)

Lazy day? Then these are the perfect snack. They require negligible effort, you can make a heap and leave them within arm’s reach to eat at your convenience. What more could such a day ask for?!


No recipe needed really because the ingredients and the whole ‘process’ of compiling them don’t go beyond what you can see in the picture so this is more of a ‘how I eat mine’ kind of thing.


I’ve stuffed this bunch with sweet almond butter, drizzled with white choc and showered with crushed cocoa beans (which I mistakenly assumed were cocoa nibs).


Serving size:

Serves 3-4


  • 12 medjool dates
  • 3 tbsp nut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Melted chocolate
  • Any sprinkles you fancy e.g. choc chips, crushed cookie


  1. Make an incision along the date, going all the way across one end to the other.
  2. Combine the maple syrup with nut butter.
  3. Stuff dates with the butter, drizzle with melted chocolate and shower with sprinkles.

This is one of my faves, but my mood is pretty changeable so I chop and change the fillings accordingly. Basically what I’m trying to say is, let me know how you eat yours so I can steal your ideas!
