These vegan protein peanut butter stuffed dates taste like a Snickers bar. But they’re made with wholesome, plant-based ingredients, including medjool dates, peanut butter, melted dark chocolate, and pea protein. Hot summer days rarely deter me from turning on my oven, but July had enough super warm days that I often hesitated to bake. This left me in the position of seeking out no-bake treats instead. These protein peanut butter-stuffed dates are the best one of those that I’ve tried.  The dates are…
