Toasted Coconut Date Caramel Bites

These bites of goodness take everything we love—sweet, a touch of salt, chocolate, perfectly toasted coconut, and (of course) delicious almond butter—to create a treat that’s simple, indulgent, and (yep) healthy! The bulk of the sweetness comes from dates, accented by our delicious, roasty Toasted Coconut Almond Butter, a touch of cocoa powder, and cinnamon, all dipped in rich dark chocolate. 



  • 1 ¼ cups pitted dates (we used Deglet, but if using Medjool, decrease coconut oil by ½ Tbsp) 
  • 3 Tbsp Big Spoon Roasters Toasted Coconut Almond Butter
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil 
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (optional) 
  • Dark chocolate chips  
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (for coating) 
  • Flaky sea salt 


  1. Combine pitted dates, Toasted Coconut Almond Butter, 2 Tbsp coconut oil, cocoa powder, and cinnamon in a food processor until thoroughly blended. The mixture will be almost paste-like. If it seems too dry, add 1 tsp of coconut oil or Toasted Coconut Almond Butter at a time until it resembles a paste. 
  2. Line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper so that some hangs over on each side, lengthwise. 
  3. Press the date mixture into the parchment-lined loaf pan and spread evenly (it should be about 1 – 1 ½ inches thick). 
  4. Freeze the mixture until firm, 2-4 hours. 
  5. Once the mixture is firm, remove from the freezer. 
  6. Microwave about 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips and 1 tsp coconut oil in 20-second increments until melted, stirring after each increment. 
  7. Remove the date mixture from the pan (using the parchment paper), and cut into rectangles. 
  8. One by one, coat each date bite with melted chocolate, and (using a fork), place onto a parchment-lined sheet tray. Sprinkle with flaky salt. 
  9. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes or until chocolate has set. 
  10. Enjoy!
