For Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts unsalted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 T natural creamy peanut butter
  • 9-11 medjool dates pitted
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

For Dark Chocolate Filling

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tsp cacao powder The extra 2 tsp. thickens to almost a frosting. Can omit for a thinner chocolate
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of sea salt


  • In a food processor, process peanuts until very fine.
  • Add in dates, peanut butter, vanilla and salt and process until a dough starts to form.
  • Roll into balls and then press a hole into the ball with thumb. Then press to flatten the cookie.
  • Place on plate or parchment lined dish.
  • In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients for the chocolate filling together.
  • Spoon the chocolate into the thumbprint holes of each cookie. If you use the extra 2 tsp. of cacao, this will be spreadable as well like a frosting.
  • Let chill for about 20-30 minutes so chocolate can set.
  • Enjoy!
