Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Soak the dates in hot water for 15 minutes then drain and set aside.
  2. White they dates are soaking, gently mix the melted coconut oil, tahini and maple syrup (if using) together in a bowl until smooth and creamy.
  3. Prepare 9 muffin liners or silicone baking cups and add 1 tbsp of the mixture into each one. Place them in the freezer to harden. They should take about 10 minutes to harden completely.
  4. In a food processor, blend the soaked dates with the sea salt until smooth and creamy like a thick paste.
  5. Pull the hardened cups from the freezer and divide the date mixture by spoonfuls into each one. Evenly spoon the remaining tahini mixture onto each one. Spreading around a little so they’re somewhat flat.
  6. Place back in the freezer until hardened, about 20-30 minutes.
  7. Store in the freezer.

Notes

For a little additional sweetness you can add 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup to the tahini. The tahini I like is very smooth and slightly sweet but I’ve found some brands to be bitter. If your tahini is on the bitter side, consider adding a hint of sweetness. 

For treats like these, I use silicone baking cups similar to these ones. I find they work better than paper liners and they last forever!
