Instructions
  1. Make a small slit in the top of the dates. Remove pits, insert the edge of two pretzels into each date to make antlers and gently press closed to hold in place.
  2. Combine peanut butter and coconut flour. Place a teaspoon of the mixture on each date just under the pretzel antlers to make a face.
  3. Stick two currants into the peanut butter to make eyes, and a goji berry onto the end of the date as a nose.
  4. Store in a single layer in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
