Dates Stuffed With Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, if that was confusing you; so it's more like coconut butter. Or actually, it looks like coconut candle wax. Yummy delicious candle wax.

3 Medjool dates
3 half teaspoons coconut oil

Take the pits out of the dates. Put a half teaspoon of coconut oil in each date.

I think I could figure out a way to wrap these up to take with me to practice, if I could not stand at the kitchen counter and eat them. Oh my god they're so good, you get the sweetness of the date and then this ...melty coconut center. Supposedly good fuel for workouts according to THRIVE: glucose from the dates, and medium chain triglycerides from the coconut oil that are immediately converted to energy.

Per three dates, 258 calories
