What are the health benefits of eating dates

  • They are a great natural sweetener, where natural sugars are bound with fiber, making them slowly absorbable.
  • Dates are rich in various microelements and phytonutrients, like potassium, iron, copper, magnesium.
  • Due to their high fiber content, they improve your gut health and fight constipation.
  • Dates are a powerhouse of antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress and prevent DNA-damage.

How to make Healthy Vegan Snickers

This might be the easiest and tastiest treat you will ever make. It takes only 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Remove the pits from the dates using a small knife. Make a small cut lengthwise.

Step 2: Take about a half teaspoon of peanut butter and fill each date with it.

Step 3: Dip the dates one by one in melted chocolate. I used two forks to cover each side. Then, place them on a dish lined with parchment paper and sprinkle some ground peanuts on top of each date. Refrigerate for about 10 mins or until the chocolate has firmed.

Useful Tips

  • If your peanut butter is runny, put it in the fridge the night before or freeze it for a while until it hardens a bit.
  • I use two forks to cover the dates in chocolate and easily remove the extra amount.
  • Put your chocolate-covered dates on a dish lined with parchment paper so you can easily remove them afterwards.

  1. Impatient? Just smash a potted date, drizzle PB on top, throw on a chocolate chip per bite you intend to take (3 small bites is what I can usually get) and enjoy. So yummy!
