I listed this simple recipe in my 12 Ridiculously Addictive Coconut Butter Recipes post, but I now realize that it deserves its own post! And if you’re wondering why….it’s because it’s too delicious.

I think I saw this idea on Artisana’s facebook page, but I can’t find it anymore unfortunately. Anyway, it’s very easy and requires no cooking or special skills. It’s great as a quick snack or as a pretty appetizer or dessert! You can buy coconut butter on Amazon.

  1. Melt the coconut butter slightly in the microwave if it’s not soft enough to scoop out with a spoon (make sure to take the metal lid off the jar first).
  2. Slice open each date so that it opens out but isn’t sliced in half.
  3. Stuff each date with as much coconut butter as you can fit in while still being able to close it up.
  4. EAT!


  • Serving Size: 2-3 dates

this is my favorite food combo in the world. I am already planning on having it for my birthday since I don’t keep dates in the house- too much sugar.

if you haven’t tried baking it in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350, definitely do it!! it caramelizes the dates a little and browns the coconut.
