  • 20 medjool dates , pitted
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips , unsweetened
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp pistachio , crushed
  • 2 tbsp almonds , crushed
  • 2 tbsp walnuts , crushed
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  1. In a small bowl, mix together together walnuts, pistachios, almonds, lemon juice, lemon zest, orange zest, cinnamon and salt. Set aside half of this mixture and save for the topping

  2. In a separate bowl, melt your chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.
  3. Make a small slot or opening in each of your dates and stuff them with the baklava mixture made earlier.
  4. Dip each date in chocolate and sprinkle with the remaining crushed nut mixture. You can either dip the entire date in chocolate or just one side, I chose to do just one side.
  5. Let the chocolate harden and your Baklava Stuffed Dates are ready!
