Peanut stuffed dates, lemon and coconut bites

I have been making a variety of dates bites for long. And the other day, my sister reminded of peanut-stuffed dates (deseeded dates and instead peanuts put in) we used to have growing up. That’s where the idea germinated to make these peanut-stuffed date-coconut-lemon bites!

They are a perfect blend of flavors with crunch inside! A must-must try for quick and healthy energy bites.
