Coconut and Hazelnut Stuffed Dates

Coconut butter (also called coconut “manna”) is the flesh of fresh coconut that is pressed with oil until it is a creamy, decadent consistency.

When stuffed inside tender dates, and topped with crunchy toasted nuts, it makes a delicious snack full of fiber and healthy fats. This simple three ingredient snack is perfect when you don’t have a lot of time, but still want something a bit indulgent.
