These clean eating stuffed dates make a fantastic snack any time of day!

Anyone who reads this blog on an even remotely regular basis knows that I love desserts way more than I should. For me, food is a major part of life, and I want life to be sweet. Is that so wrong?

But I can’t kid myself. If I want to lose weight, I need to give up the desserts the majority of the time.

Clean Eating Stuffed Dates Recipe

While this is an ongoing battle for me, there is one more fact of life that I can’t kid myself about. The fact that I WILL eat dessert from time to time. It’s inevitable. Dessert happens. So I try really hard to make sure that whatever dessert I do eat, is as healthy and clean as possible. This recipe is a perfect case in point.

    Thats quite an easy dessert, Tiffany. Am still struggling to find time to post the Lassie recipes 🙁

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sanjeeta – Yep! Very easy! No rush on the Lassie. I can wait.

  2. I substitute the cinnamon with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper… adds just the right amount of heat (not too much) and it increases your metabolism, stimulates the immune system and blood circulation.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Marie – Brave woman!! I don’t think I’d have the nerve to do that. But I’m sure it’s tasty!

  3. I’ve also stuffed them with an almond…gives a bit of crunch to them and reminds me of a larabar! =)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Erin – How fabulously simple and delicious! Great idea!

  4. Spot on Tiff! I’m going to give these a go!

    I try 90% of the time to have supportive desserts (home made) and the other 10% at restaurants and go hell for leather. Although I can’t remember the last time I ordered dessert at a restaurant. So I must be learning ;-))

      Dani – Good girl! Those restaurant desserts can really add up caloricly!

  8. Hi! I found your page and this recipe today when I was browsing for Date/peanut butter recipes….

    I actually just made peanut butter stuffed dates (without the cinnamon or salt) for dessert last night…but thanks for sharing your recipe! I’ll have to try it for sure with added cinnamon too!

  9. Lori MacKenzie says:

    I make these all the time… We stick them in the freezer and eat them frozen. They are unbelievable!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lori – Glad you like them! 🙂 Never thought to put them in the freezer. I’ll have to try that next…

  10. 4 stars
    Definitely curbs your appetite when craving something sweet while eating clean!! Thanks!
