Snicker Date Recipe

One of my recent obsessions is seeing if I can make all of the cool recipes on my TikTok For You Page with the hashtag #allergyfriendly. Some of the baked-good recipes on there can be pretty challenging, but luckily, I’ve found many simple snack recipes that are quite easy to put my own allergy friendly twist on. One of my favorite sweet treat recipes that I’ve made recently are allergy friendly snicker dates. These dates are a healthy and delicious spin on Snickers bars. I first found this recipe on @emilymariko’s TikTok page. These yummy date treats are dairy free, nut free, and gluten free and are the perfect sweet treat. They are also incredibly simple to make, which is a huge plus! Here’s how I made them. 

Ingredients and Tools

  • Pitted medjool dates (I got mine from Trader Joe’s)

  • Sunbutter

  • Dairy-free chocolate/dark chocolate (I use Enjoy Life chocolate chunks)

  • Granola (I use Safe + Fair birthday cake granola)

  • Parchment paper

  • Plate/tray


Step 1

Take five pitted dates, or however many dates you want to make, and cut them open slightly. Most pitted dates will already have a small hole on the side, so you can just separate them slightly with your hands. 

Step 2

Scoop out about half a teaspoon of sunbutter to put inside each of the dates where the pit would have been. Place the sunbutter inside of each date.

Step 3

Take out your granola. Place 1-2 chunkier granola pieces into each date where you put the sunbutter. These granola pieces will act as the “nuts” and pair well with the savory sunbutter. 

Step 4

Close the dates slightly with your hands so the sunbutter and granola are stuffed well inside.

Step 5

Melt however much chocolate you think will cover all of your dates in a bowl in the microwave. 

Step 6

Coat each of your stuffed dates with the melted chocolate. I like to place each date in the melted chocolate bowl and roll them around until they are fully coated. 

Step 7

Place each of your chocolate-covered dates on a plate/tray topped with parchment paper. 

Step 8

Place the tray with your dates into the freezer for 1-2 hours or until the chocolate coating has hardened.

Step 9

Enjoy! I usually make snicker dates in smaller batches, but you can totally make a bigger batch for a party or for your family.
