Stuffed Medjool Dates

Stuffed Medjool Dates

Ramadan will be starting this week and in our house that means stocking up on the “must haves” for breaking the fast and cutting down on time spent in the kitchen. One of the staples in every Muslim home during this month is dates, and in my home that means medjool dates. Truth be told, before I met my husband and visited Morocco I had never eaten a date. I wasn’t even really sure what they were. But now they are one of my favorite snacks! You can use them in so many different ways. There is a wide variety of dates on the market and everyone seems to have their favorite. For me medjools have always been the best.

Why? I really dislike hard dates. I don’t like the chewy ones either. Medjools are big and soft. They pair well with other foods (stuff them with blue cheese and thank me later) and you only need one or two to get a sweet fix. But what happens when you’re invited to a last minute iftar or you want something a little bit more than just the dates. I’ve made these for Ramadan events at our mosque and they’ve always eaten right up!

 

Almond Stuffed Medjool Dates

Ingredients

  • 12 Natural Delights medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup almond flour or ground almonds
  • 1-2 Tbsp argan oil (culinary grade)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 drops orange blossom water (optional)

Directions

  • In a bowl mix the almond flour with argan and powdered sugar to create a paste.
  • Make a slice in the side of each date and remove the pit.
  • Stuff each date with the almond filling.
  • Serve!

Coconut Stuffed Dates

Coconut Stuffed Medjool Dates 

When you’ve had just a few too many nut desserts it’s time to try something different!

Ingredients

  • 12 Natural Delights medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 Tbsp argan oil
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar (omit if using sweetened coconut)

Directions

  • Mix together the coconut, argan, and powdered sugar.
  • Cut a slit into the dates and remove the pit.
  • Stuff dates with the coconut filling.

These are very simple recipes but take dates up a notch and make them something special. Whether you like your dates alone, stuffed, baked or chopped up, you can’t go wrong.

Thank you for the recipes! I was wondering if it would be possible to substitute the argon oil with another? I don't have access to culinary grade argon oil.

Coconut oil would probably work as well.

Thank you Amanda for your recipes. I really want to make it my house. Can I use palm sugar? I am afraid it taste different from expected.

It will taste different and the texture will be different but that might work - give it a try!

Thanks Amanda for the lovely recipes!! wishing you Ramadan Mubarak! Could I substitute honey for the powdered sugar, or use any other healthier sweetener? or does it have to be powdered sugar for texture purposes? Thanks in advance sister.
