Ghee is one of my favourite foods. I don’t eat a lot of dairy (I’m allergic to whey) so when I found out that ghee had no lactose, casein and whey I was ALL IN. In my opinion, ghee tastes better than butter anyway because it has a deeper, nuttier flavour. I spread that stuff on bread, muffins, use it in elixirs, baking and smother it on dates for the best snack EVER. Like Ever, Ever! So I decided to make a tiny bit more elaborate recipe with the dates and ghee and share it with you all!
This recipe involves just 3 ingredients:
1)soft medjool dates
That’s ALL! It’s so easy. Are you ready to give it a go?

This recipe can be made to suit your own tastes. If you don’t want to use chaga/chai spiced ghee you can use plain ghee (although the chai flavour really takes it up a notch) if you don’t like dark chocolate use your favourite chocolate (although dark chocolate really goes well with the sweetness of the dates). It is basically a choose your own adventure here. Which is my favourite kind of dessert.
I always recommend to make your own ghee as it is the cheapest option and you can learn how to do that here. However, if you want a quick option I really like Lee’s Ghee in Canada and in the United States I choose 4th & Heart or Ancient Organics.

Chocolate Covered Chai Chaga Ghee Stuffed Dates
A sweet little treat that is perfect kept in the fridge for those moments when you need a little extra sweetness. Filled with chai and chaga spiced ghee they pack a flavour and nutritional punch!
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 5 servings 1x
- Category: Dessert
- Cuisine: Paleo, gluten free, refined sugar free
10 soft medjool dates
4 oz of your favourite chocolate (or chocolate chips)
- Pit your dates and split them in half. Scoop in as much of the ghee as you can and close the dates back up.
- Put the ghee stuffed dates back in the fridge until the ghee hardens up a bit (about 20 minutes)
- Meanwhile, melt your chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat.
- Once the ghee is more solidified(if the ghee is soft it will just melt into the melted chocolate) roll the dates in the melted chocolate and put back in the fridge to harden. Serve straight from the fridge.
*I really like using a dark chocolate to coat. You don’t want anything too sweet because the dates are so sweet themselves.
*If Chaga Chai Spiced Ghee isn’t your thing try just plain ghee or ghee mixed with a little cinnamon. Yum!
