Tahini stuffed dates

I made this recipe as part of my Veganuary food guide, where I shared with my Instagram community five staple ingredients that you will always find in my pantry.

One of this is tahini, and I left it last as I wanted to end on a sweet note by sharing these tahini-stuffed dates.

Some of us are familiar with tahini, some others are not. Very briefly, tahini is a paste made with ground hulled sesame seeds and it's extremely versatile.

You can use it for savoury recipes, like my Creamy cabbage , it goes well with fresh fruit and anything sweet and, let's not forget that it's one of the main ingredients to make hummus.


15 pitted dates

10 tsp tahini

70g extra dark chocolate

Crushed hazelnuts


Let’s start by melting the dark chocolate at bain-marie.

Fill each date with about ½ or 1 tsp of tahini, then coat it with dark chocolate and sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts.

Place them in the fridge for 30 minutes then… Enjoy!

*For the filling you can use other nut butters, like peanut, almond or cashew instead of tahini.

For the topping, you can use pistachios, almonds or shredded coconut.
