  • Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Split dates open and press down each one down onto the sheet, making sure they overlap a little so they stick together.
    Multiple dates flattened out into a rectangle on a metal baking dish.
  • Drizzle peanut butter on top and use a spoon so spread it across the dates. Sprinkle on chopped peanuts.
    Peanut butter spread on top of the flattened dates and topped off with crushed peanuts.
  • Melt chocolate with coconut oil and drizzle it on. Use a spoon to spread it around so it coats everything.
    A metal spoon being used to drizzle chocolate on top of the peanut butter and dates.
  • Sprinkle on flaky sea salt and pop the baking sheet into the freezer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate has set. Remove from the freezer, chop the bark into 10 pieces and enjoy.
    The finished date bark topped off with flaky salt.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. If you’re storing in the freezer, the dates will get pretty hard so let the bark sit out a few minutes before biting into it.
