These stuffed dates are the world’s most simple vegan snack and dessert recipe. They’re loaded with nutrition and taste delish! Be sure to use the most fresh, squishy dates you can find for best results.


  • 4 soft Medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons of nut butter, approximately (my personal favorite is peanut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegan chocolate chips, approximately


  1. The idea here is to create a sweet “taco” in a sense, where the date is the shell and the nut butter and chocolate chips are the fillings. Remove the pits in the dates by cutting into the top lengthwise just until you hit the pit. Don’t cut all the way through. Remove and discard the pits.
  2. Spoon some nut butter into the opening of each date “shell.” Top with roughly chopped vegan chocolate chips lined along the opening.
  3. Optional step: place in a covered container and freeze until hardened if you prefer a chewier and more candy-like stuffed dates. 
  4. Serve, and enjoy!


These can be enjoyed right after making them, as soft and gooey sweet treats with a little crunch from the chocolate. But my favorite way to enjoy stuffed dates is frozen. I make a big batch of these and pluck one out of the freezer whenever I need a sweet treat. They will stay good in the freezer for several weeks, at least.
