Pre-Workout Espresso Coconut Dates

Pre-Workout Espresso Coconut Dates

Ingredients

  • 10 x Bard Valley Medjool Dates
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 30ml shot espresso (or strong black) coffee

Preparation

  1. Using a sharp knife, slice the dates into halves and remove the pits.
  2. Mix the softened coconut oil, coconut and espresso together in a small bowl until well combined. If the mixture is too runny, leave it in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up then stir until you get a paste consistency.
  3. Line a tray with baking paper. Divide the espresso coconut paste into 10 pieces and use your fingers to shape each piece into oblong logs about the length of the dates. Sandwich each log between two date halves, pressing lightly to ensure everything is stuck together, and place on the lined tray.
  4. Transfer the tray to the fridge for a few hours until set. Store in the fridge or freezer.
