Sweet Treat: Coconut Date Bites

These dessert bites could not be easier to prepare yet are as satisfying as any sweet treat could be. 

For you health nuts out there, they are also super high in minerals (15 or so including iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium, etc.), antioxidants and fiber.  Dates are said to increase energy, lower blood pressure and enhance metabolism and absorption of nutrients.

Coconut oil — especially the Extra Virgin Organic type we recommend — also packs its own nutritional benefits, as do the optional organic cacao nibs.  Of course, we just love the way these taste as will most people, whether or not they care about the other benefits. 

Yes, we know its scarcely a “recipe” since it’s so easy but here it is (as requested).

Ingredients:

Organic Medjool dates (can use another soft, plump type)
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Organic Cacao Nibs (optional)

How to Make it:

Slice open each date and remove pit. Insert 1/4 tsp or so coconut oil, which will be solid at room temperature. Top with cacao nibs if you prefer.
