Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Calling all snack enthusiasts and dessert lovers! Get ready to celebrate National Pistachio Day (February 26th) in style with a delicious twist on the trending "Date Bark" recipe. We're ditching the traditional peanut butter and taking things up a notch with 99th Monkey's irresistible Pistachio & Almond Butter.

Forget the store-bought bars loaded with artificial flavours and hidden sugars. This homemade date bark is packed with natural sweetness, healthy fats, and protein, making it the perfect guilt-free treat. Plus, it's incredibly easy to whip up – even for baking novices! So, gather your ingredients and get ready to impress your taste buds (and your Instagram followers) with this unique and flavourful creation.

Why Pistachio & Almond Butter?

While peanut butter gets all the love in the date bark world, we're here to challenge the status quo. Our Pistachio & Almond Butter offers a richer, more complex flavour profile that perfectly complements the sweetness of the dates. Here's why this dynamic duo takes your date bark to the next level:

  • Pistachios: Packed with protein, fibre, and healthy fats, these little green gems add a delightful crunch and a unique nutty flavour that elevates the entire experience.
  • Almonds: Adding a creamy texture and a subtle sweetness, almonds balance the pistachios' boldness and create a harmonious flavour symphony.

The Date Bark You Deserve:

This recipe isn't just about taste, it's about customisation! Feel free to experiment with different toppings and spices to create your own signature version. Here's the basic recipe to get you started:


  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup 99th Monkey Pistachio and Almond Butter
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (melted)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios
  • Pinch of sea salt (optional)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the dates in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, pressing them down to form an even base.
  3. Spread your Pistachio & Almond Butter over the dates, making sure to reach all corners.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl using 30-second intervals, stirring frequently.
  5. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the nut butter layer, creating a beautiful, even coating.
  6. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and a pinch of sea salt (optional).
  7. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
  8. Break/slice into squares and enjoy!
