Finding the right recipes for your Ramadan experience can be challenging. With the month right around the corner, acts of spiritual reflection and self-improvement are of the utmost importance, calling for Muslims to use this time to practice abstinence from food and drink among other things, from dawn until sunset.

During this holy month, a pre-fast meal known as Suhur is recommended and usually consists of breakfast-like food, but in some cultures, it can resemble more of a dinner-style meal. As that meal is meant to fuel you for your day of fasting, it’s important to eat the right things, and thanks to acclaimed chef and food blogger, Hajar Larbah — aka Moribyan on Instagram — you now have a new recipe to add to your lineup.

Larbah recently kicked off her Ramadan recipe series with a sneak peek at some delicious-looking Peanut Butter and Chocolate Dates and honestly, even if you’re not partaking in Ramadan, you’ll want to give these a try. And while this recipe is not yet available on her site, Larbah’s Instagram teaser is a straightforward example of how to prepare them.

The recipe calls for dates, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, and a chocolate mixture. You’ll start off by slicing open the dates and pulling out their seeds. Prepare some chopped peanuts on the side as well as the chocolate mixture. Next, fill the dates with peanut butter before sprinkling in a little bit of chopped peanuts and carefully closing the date back up. Grab your chocolate mixture, and using a toothpick, dip the dates and cover completely. Finally, sprinkle some extra chopped peanuts on top before letting the chocolate cool and harden.  

If this Ramadan-inspired recipe leaves you curious for more, Larbah frequently releases them — as well as other amazing recipes that highlight her cultural background and massive sweet tooth — on her Instagram. And if you’re looking for more peanut butter-type recipes these easy, no-mixer-needed Peanut Butter Brownies will leave you begging for more. And, Cheryl Day’s Chocolate Bundt Cake — which uses coffee to elevate the chocolate flavor — was particularly made for the chocolate lover in you.
