Dates Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark – Healthy Snack

Dates peanut butter chocolate bark is a delicious and relatively healthy treat that combines the natural sweetness of dates with the rich flavours of peanut butter and chocolate.

Last year, I’d tried peanut butter stuffed chocolate covered dates & was obsessed with it. This year, it’s been this bark that got me hooked. When we have a sweet craving, it’s good to enjoy this bark rather than a store bought chocolate that’s loaded with many ingredients & is high in calories.

This is a versatile treat that can be customized to suit your taste preferences. It makes for a great snack, dessert, or even a homemade gift.

For a healthy version, use dark chocolate. You can add any kind of toppings of your choice: desiccated coconut, mixed nuts or even drizzle some caramel syrup.

  • Dates: High in fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals like potassium and magnesium.
  • Peanut Butter: A good source of protein and healthy fats, along with vitamins E and B6.
  • Dark Chocolate: Contains antioxidants and can be lower in sugar than milk chocolate, offering potential heart health benefits
